Moderate to severe dysarthria makes face-to-face communication challenging. Voice activated technologies, like Google Assistant, are extremely useful, but difficult to use. 

Project Euphonia is ‘training’ Google Assistant to understand dysarthric speech and ‘translate’ it as it is spoken. The words are then displayed on a smartphone or AAC. This allows some people to keep talking for longer at the same speed – and to be understood
