Mansfield company assigned patent

Forbes Rehab Services of Mansfield has been assigned a patent, initially filed in 2011 and developed by two co-inventors for an “audio output module for use in artificial voice systems.” The co-inventors are Paul W. Forbes of Lexington and Clayton Prescan Smeltz of Mansfield.

The invention seeks to increase not only output volume and tonal quality in the audio modules used for artificial voice sounds from a speech generating system but also the level of portability provided by the system.
