Computer Aid for Stroke Victim

I have a good uncle who was striken by a stroke and he lie in a nursing home.  While he can not move about on his own will, when I meet him he utter noises as to speak to me.  I would like to know if a computer aided device can be used to generate voice and the cost of this equipment?

I would recommend consulting with a speech therapist

There are some online resources including software available to assist with aphasia, but they focus on retraining the person who has had the stroke to speak

eg
www.strokefamily.org

There are devices called Augmentative and Alternative communication that can be given by Speech Language Pathologists. There are many different devices on the market, but they can find one that is best suited for your needs. Simply make an appointment with the nearest SLP to see if he's a candidate.
