Hey all! I’ve been thinking a lot about my voice and how difficult it is for me to talk in a loud atmosphere. I would love to get out more, but that’s really the one thing holding me back—I just can’t talk to people, which is pretty much the point of getting out in the first place.
I was doing some research the other night and found a microphone that clips to a wheelchair headrest. It’s low-profile and adjustable, so I can just push it away when I’m not using it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really have a speaker component. I think it’s meant for Dragon Naturally Speaking, so it’s input more than output, but it got me thinking. If I could rig a speaker to my chair, I could amplify my voice and virtually sidestep most issues I have with socializing.
I thought I’d run the idea past the community. If you have trouble being heard, do you have any tips? Is there something that works for you? If you have any recommendations, I’d love to hear them!
