Keycomm has started a new project this year called Vital Voices. This is a chance for anyone aged 19 or over who uses a communication aid to make their very own electronic digital story about communication really matters to them.
You may want to talk about how using a communication aid helps you to get along with friends or to have a sense of humour. The digital story will be a combination of photos, music and narration that you can do with your own communication aid.
If you are interested in taking part, you will need to be available for about 4 two-hour sessions. Once your story is complete, you will get a copy that you can play to family and friends on a computer or you might want to use it give a talk. Call us 0131 311 7130.
