Jenny has a new laptop that contains a software program that speaks what she types. This is something we have waited a long time to happen. It has wireless capabilities so she can drive around the house with her lap top. I downloaded all our digital pics on it and a few hundred songs that she could enjoy. I transfered her Word documents so she can continue with her writings and all. This is a great boost since traveling use to leave her unable to do anything- as well as being able to speak to the kids- who are still learning ASL. Jenny was even able to participate more in our primary class at church. She asked the questions to the kids and chose who would answer. As I suspected, the children were more attentive as they tried to hear what the computer voice was saying (the voice is not always the easiest to understand). I never saw more attentive kids in my life. It is still new and not always the easiest to use since it has to be on her lap or tray. She prefers the larger screened computer that is hooked up to the television, but she does well on the lap top. Best of all, the laptop is a Mac so it does not crash all the time like the Windows computers do. This is highly frustrating to her since she is unable to fix the crashes on her own. Taking care of this little problem is actually a huge thing for her.
