Stammer app aids father-of-bride from Somerset


A father-of-the-bride who feared his stammer would prevent him giving a wedding speech has been helped by a phone app, the Weston Area Health Area NHS Trust says.

Mark Wilson, 53, sought help from Weston General Hospital in Somerset ahead of his daughter's wedding in August.

Speech therapist Mike Richards said he came across the iPhone app when searching online for Delayed Auditory Feedback devices, which can help some.

Mr Wilson, who has Parkinson's disease, said his confidence had returned.
