An expert's guide to using Predictable - by Sue Jones

In 1995 Sue suffered a traumatic brain injury when she fell off of her pedal cycle and hit her head on the pavement. She was not wearing a helmet and this resulted in her having a severe speech impediment, amongst other injuries.
She was in hospital for a total of 9 months and whilst there she used a 'Type Talk' machine whereby she typed on a keyboard and it said the words for her in a robotic tone.
Before her accident, Sue was a police officer and later worked as a civilian duties officer. She found that she could cope with her sustained injuries but the main problem was she could not communicate very well at all and she found this most frustrating.
