I would recommend Proloquo4Text<http://www.assistiveware.com/product/proloquo4text> which is an AAC app.

The instructor could use an iPad at the lectern and have it bluetooth synced to portable speakers (e.g., Jambox). Proloquo4Text would allow the instructor to prepare phrases and access commonly used words that suit his communication needs with the class.

Subject: [Athen] Text to Speech Reader

An instructor of ours has had an unexpected health event that will leave him without a voice for a while. We are starting to investigate some text to speech readers that he can use in his classroom to communicate with his students. I am turning to the experts for any suggestions.

Your comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
