  • Social Exclusion

  • Internet

When we buy a camera, washing machine, or even a mortgage, many of us rely on the specialist magazines and websites that compare and contrast what’s available. But, unbelievably, nothing similar exists for the hundreds of communication aids that are now available – devices like the ‘talking’ computer used by Stephen Hawking, for example.

The Ace Centre's large database, Speechbubble, now makes it easy to find hardware and software suppliers as well as general information and advice.

This website lets users know what's on offer, with details of nearly every device available for disabled people in the UK.
