How To Control Your Phone With Your Voice

June 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Les Turner ALS Foundation Learning Series
  • About the program: What can you do to control your phone or tablet, when tapping on the screen becomes difficult? June’s ALS Learning Series will describe in detail how to control your mobile devices totally hands-free with just your voice. After seeing how powerful Voice Control is on iPhones and iPads, and Voice Access is on Androids, you’ll wonder why these free and easy-to-use software utilities aren’t well known! These voice tools are truly good news for people living with ALS.
  • About the presenter: Eddy Ehrlich is the Assistive Technology Specialist at Bridging Voice. He came to the field of Assistive Technology through his combination training as an occupational therapist and a mechanical engineer and has provided evaluations and trainings to people in various settings: schools, hospitals, and homes. Eddy specializes in computer access and augmentative communication. Over the past 30 years he has seen promising emerging technologies transform into powerful products for people with disabilities including voice-control and eye-tracking. Eddy has been a salesperson and a therapist but has always seen himself as an assistive technology educator, believing that knowledgeable consumers evolve into more powerful and independent tech users. Eddy works patiently but diligently to train people in expanding their technical skills because poorly implemented technology solutions can be so overwhelming and frustrating. Eddy has been with Bridging Voice nearly since its beginning in 2019, now working nationally [and all over the world] with a team of 10 experts to remove the access barriers between people with ALS and communication.
