A SpeechEasy Scholarship has been created on behalf of
Sean Anderson, a 10 year old SpeechEasy user, who died
suddenly last year. His parents donated his device so
that another stutterer who might not otherwise be able
to obtain the device could find greater fluency and an
improved quality of life. One SpeechEasy device will be
given to a selected child in Florida once a year. Please

"Communication is the currency for success!"
''The same technology that affords efficiencies
and economies of scale in document communications,
now has the bandwidth to support robust webcasting
and video conferencing media. A business leader's

its delivery still must mobilize the masses, with
reliance on the technology as the medium -- and not
as the sizzle.''
