A new App in iOS 17 aids ALS patients

How Apple’s new iPhone feature helps people with ALS preserve their voices

Personal Voice lets people living with ALS digitize their own way of talking with just 15 minutes of training.

When Apple rolled out iOS 17 and macOS Sonoma in September 2023, the operating systems included a new feature, called “Personal Voice” that’s invaluable for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) patients and others whose ability to speak is at risk. In just 15 minutes, users can bank their voices by reading a series of randomized text prompts. They can then sync their new synthesized voice across devices and type to speak in phone calls, video chats, and in-person conversations.

The ONSI-ALS app is a specialized mobile application designed to assist individuals with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) by providing education, tools for symptom tracking, and enhancing their overall quality of life through accessible technology solutions.
