Vibrotactile amplification system. Used to assist deaf and deaf-blind students in learning how to speak to and to correct speech skills in children and adults with communicative disorders resulting from mental retardation, dysphasia, cerebral palsy or learning disabilities. User learns to imitate correct speech sound through detection of vibrations and comparison of user's own speech productions with those of the instructor. Teacher speaks into microphone, presenting the target skill; student listens and feels vibration patterns from vibrator; speaking into microphone, student attempts to imitate instructor's vibratory and auditory patterns. Fonator Speech Trainer consists of microphone, vibrator and amplifier with controls for the intensity of the vibrations and intensity of the high and low frequencies through the vibrator.
