Thinking out loud

The Army is working on thought-to-speech technology for battlefield use; wired helmets would let soldiers send their thoughts silently and have them translated into speech for their comrades to hear. Apparently this will be somewhat dependent on users being able to think in “clean, clear and formulaic ways.” If this could be adjusted so that it accommodates the range of human thought patterns, rather than vice-versa, it might open the way for a new class of communication devices for people who have physical and/or cognitive difficulty with speech generation.
