“IF A REAL-TIME THOUGHT-TO-SPEECH SYSTEM CAME TO MARKET I WOULD LOVE TO TRY IT. MY PERSONALITY SHINES THROUGH SO MUCH MORE WITH A COMPUTER PROGRAM.”
My name is Bill Richards, Jr. I have Cerebral Palsy. I am non verbal, I use a speech program from words plus to help communicate. I give disability awareness speeches to 4th graders 2 or 3 times a month. I also speak to future doctors and nurses about disability related issues to help educate them about disability related topics before they start their Medical related careers.
I went to a standard high school in the San Francisco bay area, and to junior college in Sacramento, California. I live alone in my own home with 24 hour personal care outside Sacramento, California. I enjoy swimming, bowling, and visiting with my friends, my with my family in Tahoe, California, and New York, or where ever else my family lives.
