Voice Dream Writer

Voice Dream Writer

Voice Dream LLC

Voice Dream Writer helps everyone write better: Text-to-speech proofreading reduces mistakes, phonetic and meaning search help you use the right words, and an active outline helps you organize and improve the structure of your writing.

• Featured in the US App Store Education Collection.

• "Voice Dream Writer's technically designed for people with reading disabilities, but it's useful for just about anyone who needs a little help proofing." - Lifehacker

Text-To-Speech Proofreading. Professional proofreaders recommend reading out loud as the best way to catch mistakes. Like a personal proofreader, Voice Dream Writer reads your writing using text-to-speech, so you can easily spot awkward sentences, grammatical errors and typos. Also, it can read words and sentences as you type or voice dictate. This way, you can type faster because you no longer have to look up to check the text you just wrote.

Word Finder. Voice Dream Writer helps you find the right words using phonetic search and meaning search. For example, search for "inuf" phonetically, and you will find "enough", and search for "Fast Africa Cat" by meaning and you will find "Cheetah." Word Finder also shows you the dictionary definition of a word as you type without you having to select anything or open another program.

Outline. As you write, Voice Dream Writer automatically creates an outline of headings, paragraphs and sentences. The Outline helps you structure your document better by giving you an always-on overview. You can also quickly navigate to a section in a long document without endless scrolling. Finally, you can drag and drop elements in the Outline to organize your writing. No more selecting, cutting and pasting large blocks of text.

Besides these unique features, Voice Dream Writer also comes with everything you would expect from any great writing tool:

• Comprehensive settings for text appearance
• Uncluttered writing area
• Search for text
• Search for misspelled words
• Word count
• Synchronize and backup with iCloud
• Import and export for Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box
• Preview and print with multiple themes
• Markdown support for formatting
• Export to Microsoft Word format (compatible with Apple Pages)
• Support for Bluetooth keyboard

The app is not only fully accessible, it was designed with students and adults with print disabilities in mind. There are special tools for VoiceOver users to manage the cursor, select text, and find and correct misspelled words by stepping through them. Voice-based Proofreading and Phonetic Search are invaluable for people with dyslexia. Also included is the research-proven Dyslexie font.

Voice Dream Writer will continue to evolve. We would love to hear from you!

ChatterBoards - AAC Communication Aid

ChatterBoards - AAC Communication Aid

Paul Popiel

ChatterBoards is an easy to use AAC communication aid for people of any age who have speech or language difficulties. This can include people with aphasia, apraxia, stroke, autism, or any other disability that causes the individual to have difficulties in communicating or expressing their needs.

Sample User Review:
"I'm a Speech and Language Therapist working in the UK, and have been using this app with several of my clients. There is much to love about it. It's simple to use. You can easily add your own images, text and audio; you can also use the in-built text to speech facility, with the options of selecting the language you want (making it great for SLTs working in multi-lingual communities) as well as modifying the speech rate and pitch. The app automatically selected UK English, presumably being sensitive to geography. You can produce as many boards as you want and can decide how many tiles you want to a board. You can easily drag the tiles around the board to change their position. You can also make copies of a board to experiment with modifications without losing the original. So far the app has proved to be extremely stable, with no crashes. All in all this is a great communication board app and represents excellent value for money. I look forward to the next update. Highly recommended."

Features:
- NEW: Share boards with other users of ChatterBoards. Use Apple AirDrop, Mail, Message, or any other valid installed application on your device.
- Supports both iPhone and iPad
- All board dimensions supported up to and included 8x8 (rows x columns)
- Tap on a tile to have its associated audio played
- Customise board tiles by changing their text, colour, image and audio playback
- Change tile images from your devices photo library. Save images from the internet, or from downloaded symbol libraries, into your photo library for use.
- Change tile images from your devices camera
- Change tile images from over 500 sample images (Designed by Freepik and distributed by Flaticon)
- Change tile audio by using a Text to Speech synthesiser.
- Text to Speech supports all iOS packaged languages (over 30 languages)
- Change rate, pitch and/or volume of Text to Speech synthesiser.

Classic TC with WordPower

Classic TC with WordPower

Silver Kite

TC is a full-featured communication solution for individuals who have difficulty using their natural voice. TC is designed for individuals with Autism, Down Syndrome, ALS, apraxia, stroke, or other conditions that affect a person's ability to use natural speech.

This version of TC is bundled with the WordPower series of AAC vocabularies designed by Nancy Inman. WordPower is a word-based vocabulary that allows for easy and intuitive communication. WordPower with Phrases incorporates phrases for easier language generation.

TC 2.0 provides both English and Spanish options in one app and provides a universal app supporting iPhone®, iPod touch® and iPad®. 2.0 includes a new English WordPower 108 file and the first Spanish WordPower option with 48 locations.

TC fits into the category of assistive technology known as Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and includes features that were previously only available in much more expensive dedicated devices. Words, phrases and messages are spoken with a built-in voice synthesizer or by playing recorded message. Various English and Spanish synthesized voices are available, allowing the user to choose a voice that fits their own personality. TC also has a unique feature whereby one can simply tilt the device to make the message expand to fill the screen in large letters. This feature allows a person to communicate silently or in a noisy environment. TC gives an individual the ability to navigate through page sets and speak messages. Page sets are linked pages, each of which is divided into a number of buttons. The buttons are programmed to have specific actions. For example, buttons may be programmed to speak a message, navigate to a different page, change the volume or clear the display. Various page sets are included with the TC: VocabPC, MultiChat-15, and Spelling and available in both English and Spanish options, myQuickChat’s are available in English while Sintaxis and Sin Sintaxis files are available in Spanish. Each page set targets individuals with different communication needs. Additional English page sets including Essence, Gateway and Pixon are available as in-app purchases.

Text generated with TC pages can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Google + or via iMessage and email. Generate a message, push on the text window and choose a service.

Text from other applications can be copied to TC so that it can be spoken out loud. Also, text generated in TC can be copied to other applications.

The pages, grid layout, buttons, messages, and symbols are fully customizable. Buttons can be easily rearranged by simply dragging them to the desired new location. Buttons can be copied and pasted into a different location. The styling of a button (colors, borders, fonts) can be copied and pasted into another button.

Provided page sets can be modified to create new custom page sets. Select from over 30 button actions when creating new buttons. Over 10,000 Symbolstix symbols are included for customizing buttons. Use any image or take a photo with the built-in camera. Gestures can also be used to navigate to new pages, speak messages, etc.

Button activation timing can be adjusted to meet the needs and capabilities of the user. Adjustments include button dwell time and button release time. Also buttons can be configured to activate on release.

Users can program buttons to play audio files such as music from the media library or video files from the Photo Roll.

Great measures have been taken to protect custom files. Vocabulary files can be imported and exported to a computer using the iTunes file sharing feature. TC also enables users to subscribe to iShare and store custom files for safe keeping, or choose to share customized pages with an online community.
