I am a 65 year old ordained minister. I have had cancer of the throat and lost my voice. I use an augmentive communication software (used with and Ipad) that changes text to speech. It works quite well and I can link sentences and paragraphs together to produce dialogue in advance. So, it is possible for me to preach, teach or have extended conversations. Do you think I am able to function as a chaplain? Obviously, with only one unit of CPE, I would have to go back and pick up three more u...
