I AM GOING TO BE UPFRONT WITH MY PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.
The good news is that...
By not going down the manual keyboard or needle-in-the- brain, signal-and-computer path concept, I believe that we will be able to very rapidly open up the world of speech to thousands of children and adults within a three-year time scale. Impossible with other approaches.
So, here is my first provisional guesstimate of what we can do starting with when we have reached a given working fund. and a working advisory panel.
Obtaining funding to start the project 6 months
THREE-YEAR WORKING PROGRAM
Working out the technicalities of the concept 18 months
Constructing the first working protoypes 12 months
Presenting and promoting the device to industry 6 months
working to help the voiceless
