Congresswoman battling PSP delivers House speech using a text-to-voice app

On Monday, May 6, Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-Va.) used a text-to-voice application to “speak.”  In 2023, she was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). She said, “PSP makes it very difficult for me to speak, and I use an assistive app so that you and our colleagues can understand me.”  And she introduced some legislation.  Not many with PSP use this sort of device.  And not many with PSP would still be able to do their jobs a year after a diagnosis.  So hats off to Rep. Wexton.
