I don't know if your colleague needs text to speech also, but there is an iPhone/iPad app called Assistive Chat that allows you to type text on a screen and have the TTS read it out loud. It also does word prediction and allows you to save text for recall and repetition later. It's about $25. www.assistiveapps.com<http://www.assistiveapps.com>

I am looking for recommendations for word predictors for a nonverbal staff member. He can use the keyboard with one finger and has used for many years a handheld with TTS. Typing with one finger and he generally does not use on-screen keyboards.

I showed him Innovation Management Group word predictor, that he liked.
I was wondering about some of the other word predictor like

word +

What about apps for the iPad?
