App gives disabled man power of speech

Tablet software enables voiceless Briton to communicate for the first time in years.

    A severely disabled man in the north of England has been given back the power of speech, from a simple piece of free software.

    Kevin Beverley is communicating for the first time in years - after his carers gave him an iPad. The Gridplayer app allows him to choose from a wide range of words or phrases to build up sentences.
