Abstract

Individuals with neurological and neuromuscular conditons such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, laryngectomy, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injury are at times unable to produce phonetic and orthographic signs necessary for communication. For these individuals the authors' laboratory has developed microcomputer based prostheses with voice and printer output which have been effectively used for the past four years. There has been built into the devices the necessary intelligence to allow semantic accessing of an information base which would produce the appropriate syntactic forms. Also developed as part of these efforts was a temporal Morse code decoder that generated ASCII characters through an RS-232 standard interface. For those who lack the necessary temporal control, a spatial Morse code decoder has been designed.
