Talkitt is an innovative solution that enables people who have motor, speech, and language disorders to easily communicate using their own voice.


Talkitt translates unintelligible pronunciation from any language

into understandable speech, 

This is an amazing video created by one of our supporters,
describing the problem and the solution:


Approximately 1.5% of the world’s population live with speech disabilities caused by a variety of medical conditions. These include, but are not limited to, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS/Lou Gehrig's), Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, Brain Injury, Autism, Parkinson’s Disease and more.

Talkitt will change the lives of people with speech disabilities, as well as their:

who communicate with them on a daily basis.


Talkitt recognizes the user’s vocal patterns and “speaks” their words in an understandable language, allowing them to communicate clearly and easily with anyone, anywhere and in any language. It doesn't matter if you speak French, Chinese, Klingon, or anything in between--with Talkitt, you can communicate.


In the immediate future, Talkitt will run on any smartphone or tablet. Later, Talkitt will run on PCs, laptops and wearable devices allowing the person to speak freely with anyone, anywhere and anytime. 

"The ability to speak and be understood is basic for most people, yet for me it is a daily struggle. Talkitt opens up the ability enjoy a broad range social activities and have a better life."
- Orit Kelner (living with Cerebral Palsy)

Because Talkitt recognizes patterns within the voice, Talkitt works with any language! It doesn't matter if you speak French, Chinese, Klingon, or anything in between--with Talkitt, you can communicate!
