Calling all Programmers, Device Tech and generally problem-solving ingenius friends:  I need something to help my Mom communicate again.  If you think you can help or know of someone who can help or has solved this kind of problem, please let me know.   My Mom really needs help.


Problem:  Mom has Parkinson’s.   Her loss of muscle control is affecting her ability to speak.


Possible Solution? -Touchpad laptop or tablet with suggested word functionality like your average text program on a phone.   Very plain “desktop” that only includes IM, Email and Web functionality.


Limiting Factors:  Hands are shaky and have limited mobility.  Keyboards and small devices have proven problematic.   Solution needs to be affordable.    Think under $500.


Any and all ideas are welcome. I admit my own ability to problem-solve around this has been limited by emotional involvement, lack of programming ability and the need for a solution that is not going to cost hundreds to thousands of dollars.
