The Edinburgh Masker is a device historically used to control stuttering. It is no longer manufactured. It consisted of an apparatus strapped across the larynx and then attached to a stethoscope-like system; as a result, the stutterer cannot hear his or her own words.[1]

The Edinburgh Masker (U.S. Pat. No. 3,566,858 and U.S. Pat. No. 3,773,032) electronically remove the sounds added by nasal and oral cavities, providing only a sound similar to laryngeal vibration. This device reduces or eliminates stuttering in about 90% of users[3]

Thank you for this great example of how you can use powerpoint to build an interaction. So many times people think that you can only put bullet pointed text on a screen with powerpoint. I will forward this to people new to developing elearning courses as an example of great design.

I thought your version of the module was excellent. I think very little learning value was lost by your version. I liked the screen layout better and the text was easier to read. Like the others that responded, I need to challenge myself to get away from the bullets of powerpoint and use each screen as a blank canvas. Thanks so much!
