SentenceShaper in real life: Stories

The posts on this page describe some real-life, social uses of SentenceShaper. (Other sections of this website describe its use for language therapy, and the Video Gallery provides examples of the same person’s speech with and without SentenceShaper.)  Aphasia centers and clinics with a life participation approach can provide important support in helping people with language problems use assistive technology in “real life”, and most of the stories on this page occurred in clinics or centers. (See the Clinical Blog section for descriptions of how the program is used at some aphasia centers and clinics.) But, as observed by Purvis and Ostberg, it is the people with language problems themselves who may  discover unexpected and appropriate  uses for assistive technology in their own lives.
