Do you have a speech disability and live in the USA? If so, you can now use a free telephone service 24 hours a day. This service, called “Speech-to-Speech” (STS), provides communication assistants (CAs) to help people with speech difficulty (PSDs) be understood by the public on the telephone.
PSD's can dial toll free to reach a patient, trained CA who is familiar with many speech patterns and has excellent language recognition skills. This CA makes telephone calls for them and repeats their words exactly in a 3-way calling environment.
To try out STS call 800-854-7784 and ask for Dr. Bob Segalman (directly at 916-448-5517). You can also access STS by dialing 711 and asking for Speech-to-Speech.
