DAC Redding is implementing the Voice Options Pilot Program, which connects Californians who have difficulty speaking
or are not able to speak, to iPads with speech apps. These speech apps can speak for you. It may make being understood
easier and allow you to speak independently. This pilot program allows people who have difficulty speaking to borrow an
iPad with communication apps for a short term loan. We will provide assistance in learning how to use the apps.
If the apps are helpful to you, you may apply for a long-term loan.
Please see the Voice Options Website VoiceOptions.org for specific information. Call the Redding Disability Action Center,
530-242-8550, ext 211 and ask for Mary Nagashima to set up a demonstration or to ask questions about the program. We are
Also available to present our program to interested groups. We’d like to reach out to everyone who might benefit from this
