#KennethUdut = #StephenHawking ? Well, close :P Ok. I had to try it out. Can you blame me? I worked with alternative inputs for computers back in 1992/93 when I was volunteering for the Cerebral Palsy Center in Union NJ. I set up their computers with buttons, image boards, straw interfaces (like Hawking used to use). I learned the hardware, figured out how to install it, taught some of the teachers and some of the kids on using them. It was a lot of fun. I love how far the technology has come. It’s not a *lot* different than it was; but it’s a lot smoother and easier to use. The predictive text is really top notch. The ones you have on your phones is based on the same principles. Good use of #ArtificialIntelligence and yes, that’s a different voice. It used one on my computer that I was messing around with a while ago and forgot was there. But it’s easy enough to find Stephen Hawking’s voice; it’s available for download somewhere. I just wanted to try his software out, and it works just fine. It’s available at http://ift.tt/1DXKs7s – and it’s for WindowsXP and above. Now YOU TOO can be Stephen Hawking :P
