testing

THIS LAST MONTH, BESIDES A “GOOD DAY” HERE & THERE, I’D BEEN HAVING A HARD TIME SPEAKING …NOT SURE IF IT’S A “BAD SPEAKING PHASE,” OR IF I’M TOO WORN OUT, BUT 1 THING IS CLEAR: PRACTICE MATTERS! I DID THIS VIDEO 2 PREPARE A GIFT, & AS I DID, I STARTED OUT EXHAUSTED BY A TINY BIT, THEN GOT STRONGER & NOW THAT I’M IN A “SPEAKING PHASE,” I AM ABLE 2 SPEAK MORE, & MY PRACTICE HAS HELPED ME LEARN THINGS TO MAKE ME CLEARER.

WHAT I DID:
ZACH HEARD ME GRUNTING, & WONDERED WHAT I WAS DOING. I WAS USING A SPEECH PROGRAM CALLED “SENTENCE SHAPER 2.” & THE PROGRAM USES PICTURES & MY VOICE TO MAKE A “WORKBOOK.” I HAVE PICTURES WITH SENTENCES TYPED ABOVE THE PICTURES. EACH PICTURE IS A PAGE IN THE WORKBOOK, AND I TRY TO SAY EACH TYPED SENTENCE. HOWEVER, IT IS OVERWHELMING FOR ME TO THINK THAT I NEED TO SAY THAT ENTIRE SENTENCE, SO I START SMALL. I SAY A WORD SEVERAL TIMES & RECORD THE “SNIP-ITS,” THEN CHOOSE A “SNIP-IT” (WORD) 2 KEEP. THOSE GRUNTS ARE WORDS THAT FORM A SENTENCE. I PUT THE “SNIP-IT’S” IN ORDER SO I SOUND LIKE I’M SAYING A SENTENCE, & THEN THEY ARE COMBINED TO MAKE A “BEAN.” EVENTUALLY, I CAN HAVE SENTENCES BE “SNIP-ITS” THAT CAN BE COMBINED 2 FORM PHARAGRAPHS (“BEANS”).

THEN I EXPORTED IT, & I HAVE UPLOADED IT TO MY ITUNES & MY IPAD. THEN, I TURNED THE WORKBOOK INTO A VIDEO. THAT IS WHAT U SEE.
YOU HEAR THE EXPORTED BEANS, SEE THE PICTURES, & SEE THE TYPE THAT SAYS WHAT I SAY.
