About a couple of years ago, I decided to try DAF, and see whether it really helps. Now the Speecheasy device is really expensive (about USD 5000), so I thought of an alternative – to go for Windows Mobile version of DAF software, and use a bluetooth head-set with my mobile.
I downloaded the software from www.artefactsoft.com; they let you download it for 7 days’ evaluation period. I installed the software on my Palm Treo 750; and set the speech delay as 100 milliseconds.
And it worked like a charm in getting rid of my blocks; they were all but gone. But I hit upon an even bigger problem – repetitions. The sound of what I spoke came to my ears with a slight delay, and it was so confusing, I was not able to understand whether I have said certain thing or going to say it. I repeated words and sounds pathetically, and my speech became almost illegible.
I tried it for 3 days, but then it became so much pain, I had to get rid of it.
If anybody else wants to try it, mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org; I’ll be happy to guide you on how to use it.
