If you are one of the millions of people worldwide with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, Parkinsonism, MSA, PSP, CBD or essential tremor, YOUR speech and voice could help others.
Have you been frustrated when using a voice prompt system that cannot recognize your voice? Does your speech or voice fluctuate throughout the day and sometimes sound to low, too fast, or have you been told you mumble?
Turn Those Voice Lemons into Lemonade
LSVT Global has teamed up with Google to make speech recognition more accessible to people with speech disorders. To do this they need samples of disordered speech to train the system. LSVT Global is recruiting people with speech disorders to help. Upon completion of the project, participants will receive a $60 gift card from Google. Just click on the links below and you are on your way to making a difference in the lives of people whose speech has been affected by Parkinson’s and related diagnosis.
What if my speech is not good?
No worries! EVERYONE with Parkinson’s or a related diagnosis is encouraged to participate because every voice matters, so contact them anyway. BUT, after you have participated in this important project request a referral to a speech-language pathologist knowledgeable about Parkinson’s and learn what’s possible for improving and maintaining your ability to effectively communicate.
