Wonderful app for the patient on a ventilator!

This app needs more updates! It is truly a spectacular app for me, a patient who
Lives on a ventilator. This helps me communicate, with the people that are caring for me. I wish more people knew about this wonderful app. I wish this app had more ratings.

Looking forward to this being optimized

This can be very helpful for brief interactions. I hope that in future versions the free text translation function works,And that there is a functionality to indicate that you are the physician/clinician who wishes to communicate and understand patients.
