Hi, I have just had laser treatment today. This will be procedure number 9 for laryngyal palpiloma and laryngeal cancer. I have been told my voice will probably be very damaged this time due to the scaring and number of procedures I have had. I was wondering if anyone could reccomend any apps for my iPhone which I could use as a communication aid? Thanks.

Hi Rachel.  Sorry to hear about the tough time you are going through.  I hope the scarring is not too bad.  You may want to think about a supplement like NAC (N-Acetyl cysteine) which is supposed to help the body heal better (but speak to your doctor of course!).  As for an app, I must confess I am a HTC user and a total i-phone dunce.  Janet on here is very good with tech stuff, maybe you might want to post on her page and also put up a blog post titled voice communication software or similar.  Do you ever come down to London?  I am keen to run another voice problem group for all new members.  Terry

Hi Rachel, sorry to hear of your difficulties, I found an app Called 'speak it" last year, that seemed pretty good, and offerd a choice of voices/ accents for free. However it might be worth doing further searching as there could be a better app out there now. I am lucky that I don't currnelt need to use one, so I might not be totally upto date on the app front.
Hope this helps.

Have a nice day.
