Parkinson’s Life Hack: been having a few issues with speech, looked up some devices that could help MIGHTY PRICEY! I don’t have 4-5000 to plunk down on what they were offering.
So I started hacking and thinking tonight. Could I do it on the cheap? I mean pay NOTHING and see if this tech works.
The principal is to give you a delayed (slightly delayed, in the microseconds) copy of your voice going in your ear as you talk (you use only one ear.)
1. take your smartphone download an app called Speech Jammer
2. load it up and set the delay for several (3-7)
3. plug your earbuds in, put ONE in you ear, start it up and see if it works
It’s WORKING. Now to see how it does out in real life.
I really LIKE the Davis Phinney Foundation’s motto: “Every Victory Counts.” I had that sort of two days, got the Unity 3D tutorial WORKING and I installed a new headlight on the Sedona. So I give it a “double viking” rating (two victories). When you got the PD every LITTLE thing that you can whup up on is a GOOD thing!
Mastering and debugging the UNITY game software let’s me know dementia hasn’t set in, and of course it gave me a real rush to debug it and have it actually WORK. The headlight was just the cherry on top.
But BACH or WAGNER might, time to crank up the old NPR daytime shows! Classical music appears to quell Parkie tremors! Check here!
