Congressman battles brain disease and delivers speech in the House using a text-to-voice app

Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-Va.) stepped to the microphone on the floor of the House of Representatives on Monday to speak about one of her latest pieces of legislation, as she has done many times before during her five years in Congress.

But the voice giving the speech wasn’t hers — it came from a text-to-voice application, a tool she uses to help her cope with a degenerative brain condition she was diagnosed with last year.
