About Us

Founded in 1992, TextSpeak and can trace its beginnings to Touchbase Design where we pioneered the first portable modem technology leading into the Internet era. In 1991 the brand was acquired and our products transitioned into the 3COM brand. We hold unique patents in Voice Dialing and Speech technology and create award winning products, platforms and proprietary software algorithms.

Testimonials and Customer Reviews

I am very happy that I could help my sister speak again after 4 throat surgeries and radiation treatments. We love your product!! Sincerely-
Susan V Moscow, ME
I think Text Speak is a great AAC device for cognitively intact individuals who are having trouble making their wants and needs known. The simplified mechanics and lack of iconic symbols makes this device ideal for the geriatric population. Please let me know what I can do to help. I really believe you have a good thing going here and will continue to recommend Text Speak for my patients who I feel can benefit from them. Thank you!

I am unable to speak, in a nursing home, so I am using this constantly now. (everybody loves it). .... ,One further comment-this was purchased by a grad school professor for me who has degrees in Spanish and language history. We have also marveled that you could do the Spanish so well.
