SA invention soothes stuttering

first_imgThe credit card-sized VoiceAmp 601 Fluency EnhancerTamara O’ReillySouth African inventor Alan Falck has patented a remarkable new device that can help people overcome stuttering. The credit card-sized VoiceAmp 601 Fluency Enhancer uses the soothing effects of choral sounds to allow stutterers speak more fluently.A socially debilitating condition, stuttering occurs when the normal flow of speech is disrupted with pauses, frequent repetitions or a prolongation of the first syllable of words. Speaking before a group of people or talking on the telephone tends to make it more severe. More than 1% of the South African population are stutterers, while 5% stutter at some time and recover spontaneously during childhood.“It is not known what causes stuttering, but what we do know is that it is a complex interplay of a combination of factors like genetics, family dynamics and child development,” says Dina Lilian, speech therapist at the Donald Gordon Medical Centre in Johannesburg.There is no cure for stuttering. But for 70 years it has been known that situations where a phenomenon called choral accompaniment occurs – such as singing, reciting poetry or speaking alone – often improve fluency.Knowing that hearing one’s own voice can also cause a person to speak effortlessly, Falck, the managing director of VoiceAmp, invented the device in collaboration with research teams at the University of the Witwatersrand and other South African universities. It is now being successfully marketed across the world.Falck is no stranger to inventions; he has been known to be creative with his hands from the age of eight, when he started making solar panels. His interest in speech aids began when his grandfather lost his ability to speak clearly; Falck invented a device that amplified his grandfather’s vocal chords.How it worksThe VoiceAmp 601 is based on an electronic reproduction of choral accompaniment, where the device receives the user’s voice signal via a microphone. This signal is then processed by the device and altered to produce a choral voice. The choral voice is then played back to the user via an earpiece, which unlocks the stuttering effect and allows the user to speak with little or no interruption.Settings for three different background noise levels can be programmed to simulate noisy to quiet backgrounds at the flick of a switch.“This device helps mainly those with a severe stutter and is best used in conjunction with speech therapy,” says Lilian. “For those who have benefited it really does make a remarkable difference to their lives.”Useful linksVoiceAmpSpeakeasylast_img read more

Lessons from the Second Successful Humble Bundle

first_imgTags:#start#tips Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market audrey watters A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts The Humble Bundle ended its second pay-what-you-want deal on Saturday. After running for just 11 days, the startup, newly backed by Y Combinator sold over $1.8 million in video games, outperforming the great success the first bundle had earlier this year. The Humble Bundle lets customers choose the price they wanted to pay – anything from a penny up – to download a package of 5 indie video games. And even though they could have paid just a cent, the average customer spent $7.83 to download the bundle. Some companies, in order to have their names listed as top contributors on the Humble Bundle site, paid several thousand dollars for the bundle. (And for those keeping score at home, Linux users again paid twice as much as Windows users – $13.76 to $6.67.) Making the Pay-What-You-Want Business Model WorkPay-what-you-want has become an interesting alternative business model online, with bands like Radiohead demonstrating that it can be an even more successful than traditional pricing. The key to success, however, may be the amount of attention you can generate for your campaign. Pay-what-you-want is often a trade-off between a making small number of full-price sales and a large number of sales at what’s likely a far lower price. One of the games in the bundle Machinarium, for example, normally sells for $20. But by being part of the Humble Bundle, certainly it sold many times more copies than normal. Of course, not everyone can generate quite the buzz of Radiohead or Humble Bundle for that matter, and a recent study pointed to another option for helping make pay-what-you-want endeavors successful: combine it with a voluntary payment to charity, and people then tend to give more. Indeed, Humble Bundle customers can flag some of the money to go towards charity – either Child’s Play or the EFF – and some of it towards a tip for the Humble Bundle itself. Venture Beat estimates that tip might’ve brought in around $90,000 for the startup’s tip jar. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Adding a BitTorrent OptionOne of the interesting decisions that the Humble Bundle made this year was to make the games available for download via BitTorrent. Bundle co-founder Jeffrey Rosen asked people why they pirated the Bundle, rather than purchasing it for a penny. Many responded that they simply wanted to be able to access the games via BitTorrent as, for example, they had a poor Internet connection and couldn’t sustain the download. So Rosen added BitTorrent to the download options. He notes, “The most common search term for the Humble Indie Bundle is ‘Humble Indie Bundle torrent’, so we hope that by supporting BitTorrent we can help convert at least some of the pirates into legitimate users, or at least give one less reason to pirate it.”With the pay-what-you-want pricing, the DRM-free content, and the embracing of BitTorrent, the Humble Bundle seem to be trailblazing a very different model for selling and distributing online content. What are your thoughts on their ability to make this work so well?last_img read more

In the first half we scored two goals and controlled the game but at the end of the game they brought on Benteke and he caused some problems for us but Ederson was superb to make the saves.”They started to play long balls and high balls for their tall players. But if we scored the goals from the chances we created it would have been a different game.”On playing at centre-back, he added: “It was fine. In the first half we controlled out actions and didn’t concede any chances.

Divorce bill deadlock EU laments progress on Brexit

first_imgBRUSSELS – Brexit talks have hit a deadlock on the key issue of Britain’s exit bill in the divorce, the European Union’s chief negotiator said Thursday, adding that the slow-moving talks won’t be broadened anytime soon to include future trade relations.Giving a downbeat assessment of the latest round of negotiations, EU negotiator Michel Barnier said despite the talks’ recent “constructive spirit … we haven’t made any great steps forward.”On the question of how much Britain has to pay to settle its financial commitments to the bloc, he said: “We have reached a state of deadlock, which is disturbing.”Barnier said he would not be able to recommend to EU leaders meeting next week that “sufficient progress” has been made to broaden the talks to discussing future EU-British relations, including trade.The leaders meet in Brussels on Oct. 19-20, and with time short to seal a deal it had been hoped they would agree to widen the talks.The EU says this can only happen when there has been progress on the issues of the financial settlement, the rights of citizens affected by Brexit and the status of the Northern Ireland-Ireland border.Britain is on track to leave the 28-nation bloc in March 2019. Many businesses are worried that Britain could leave the EU without a trade deal in place, which would mean tariffs on exports from both sides, reams of red tape and chaos at European ports.The British pound fell Thursday on news of the slow progress, trading 0.6 per cent lower at $1.3142.Britain says its exit terms are closely intertwined with those on future relations like trade and must be discussed together.“I hope the member states will see the progress we have made and take a step forward” next week, British Brexit envoy David Davis told reporters.“We would like them to give Michel the means to broaden the negotiations. It’s up to them whether they do it. Clearly I think it’s in the interests of the United Kingdom and the European Union that they do,” Davis said.Barnier said the two would work to achieve “sufficient progress” in time for a subsequent meeting of EU leaders in December.Britain is scheduled to leave the EU on March 29, 2019, but the talks must be completed within about a year to leave time for EU states’ national parliaments to ratify the Brexit agreement.European estimates on the size of the divorce bill have varied from around 60 billion euros to 100 billion euros ($70 billion to $120 billion), but British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative government has rejected such numbers without clearly explaining how the amount should be calculated.“The U.K. repeated that it was still not ready to spell out these commitments,” Barnier said. “There have therefore been no negotiations on this subject.”However, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson insisted the U.K. had “set out what we think are some pretty convincing ideas on citizenship, on money” and on other issues.“We’re looking for some urgency from our friends and partners,” he told reporters in London. “Time to put a tiger in the tank and get this thing done.”The negotiations appear to be moving at a snail’s pace and each round leaves a sense of deja vu, with Barnier lamenting the lack of movement and Davis appealing for more European flexibility.Thursday’s news conference, however, was brightened briefly by an unexpected visitor dressed as Superwoman promoting her book on why Europe needs one.Mindful that the clock is ticking, Barnier reaffirmed that parting with “no deal will be a very bad deal.”“To be clear, on our side, we will be ready to face any eventualities, and all the eventualities,” he said.The British government is under pressure from euroskeptic lawmakers at home to increase planning for a “no deal” Brexit — leaving the bloc without a trade agreement.Pro-Brexit lawmakers are urging May’s government to set aside money for new customs posts and other infrastructure that would be needed in the event of such an exit. Some even say Britain should walk away from the negotiations if the EU does not agree to start the next phase by the end of the year.The Brexit spokesman for Britain’s opposition Labour Party accused the government of risking a collapse in the talks with its infighting. Keir Starmer said crashing out without an EU trade deal “would be catastrophic for jobs and living standards and must be rejected as a viable option.”He urged Davis to ask for an emergency round of talks before next week’s EU summit in an attempt to unblock the logjam.___Lawless reported from London.last_img read more
