TAPS | DrumPants Fabric Trigger

uk text to speech
A DrumPants fabric trigger is placed on the survivor’s body or wheelchair in a designated location. With a minimal touch, the trigger will activate an app on their device to voice a customizable statement or have their emails or text messages read out loud. This technology does not stop there. The fabric trigger can also be programed to control lights, open automatic doors or communicate with other electronic devices. Survivors with limited mobility will demonstrate how TAPS is currently being used to communicate, open their email inbox, open text messages and answer their incoming phone calls. This technology promises to improve the quality of life by making them more independent. Via TAPS
