The Human Voice & The Power of Humanity

June is National Aphasia Awareness Month.

Ruby Jordan

10 million+ people live with voicelessness. Many use awkward text-to-speech devices to express themselves – with no nuance for age or gender. Science is revealing more about the causes of voicelessness and now technology is offering new solutions. You can get involved by donating your own voice to help another person get matched to a voice more personal and expressive for them. Find out how at this exciting event!
