About Bridging Voice
Bridging Voice is a 501c3 non-prot that helps ALS patients by supporting all their technology needs related to communication and computer access.
WE BELIEVE the ability to connect and communicate with family, friends, and the broader world is a critical component of the human experience. No diagnosis should be allowed to take this away.
OUR MISSION is to enable and empower people with ALS to communicate by removing the barriers between them and assistive technology.
Maryland Durable Medical Equipment Re-Use provides gently-used mobility equipment to Maryland residents, free of charge. To donate or receive equipment such as wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, home hospital beds, mechanical lifts, shower chairs, and more visit dme.maryland.gov or call 240-230-8000.
The customer service at Bridging Voice that I have experienced, as measured by responsiveness, skill, knowledge, courtesy, respect, and empathy for end-user needs, has been outstanding. I am deeply grateful for the assistance I have received that is enabling me to communicate even with the loss of my speaking voice.
I was a broadcast journalist in Washington, DC, for a half century, and my greatest concern after being diagnosed with ALS was the possibility of losing the ability to stay in touch with the world and to communicate with my former colleagues and students, not to mention, my friends and family members. Bridging Voice to the rescue! This dedicated organization, primarily in the person of speech and language pathologist Annie has provided me with several hours of personalized training in eye gaze technology as well as with apps that utilize banked messages and voices.
