Quick Talk AAC

Quick Talk AAC

Digital Scribbler, Inc

We are excited about the completely new design of Quick Talk AAC! Working with educators, therapists, engineers, parents, and individuals who are non-verbal, we have developed a communication that anyone can use! Quick Talk was designed with a simple mission - to change the world by giving a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. Our goal is to make it as quick as possible for you to talk. We made this app as mobile, simple, and flexible as possible, so for one small fee you can have everything you need to communicate. Don't spend your time setting up; spend your time talking!

Quick Talk AAC has been effectively used by individuals with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, apraxia, and other special needs, both at home and in a school environment. There is a huge need for an assistive technology that can equip those who are non-verbal with the ability to communicate. Typical Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices and apps are either too expensive or too complicated. We have set out to change this by providing an affordable solution to everyone with access to iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. We developed Quick Talk with the advice and guidance from experts in speech therapy, educators, and individuals who use AAC devices to pack it full of features, while keeping simplicity and cost in mind. The outcome is a one-of-a-kind app that we believe will change many lives.

We believe Quick Talk is going to make a huge difference in peoples' lives and are committed to its continual improvement. Please email us any suggestions you may have about how we can further improve Quick Talk as we take your feedback seriously.

About Digital Scribbler, Inc
Founded by Russ Ewell, Digital Scribbler is a technology company, whose "built in the garage" origin story typifies Silicon Valley. This garage is now more mentality than place. It is a mindset which says, "If we can dream it, we can build it." We dreamed of creating an affordable communication app, which was capable of giving the verbally challenged a voice. It needed to be mobile, simple, and flexible. Quick Talk AAC was the result, and it has been helping those in silence speak ever since.

See Me Talk

See Me Talk

Kevin Hanasyk

Customer feedback:
"I can't think of anything I would want different. It's easy to use and we LOVE it. His speech therapist at the school has tried several apps and she recommended this one above all others. I love how easy it is to customize, too." - Kim, North Carolina

"See Me Talk is a brilliant communication app for individuals with limited communication but also has application for early literacy development. It has ease of search function and is visually delightful. Sentence assembly is quick and loads of pics are available to choose from." - Jordan Speech Therapy

Thanks to everyone who has been sending in such wonderful feedback! I will continue to work hard to make See Me Talk even better!

See Me Talk is a beautiful easy to use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) app for those who have difficulty communicating effectively. It is based on a picture exchange system developed specifically for children with speech delays.

See Me Talk was developed by a Special Education Teacher with over 14 years experience, in consultation with Speech Pathologists and parents of children with speech delays, who saw a need for an app that was visually pleasing and easy to navigate. Additionally, the app was professionally designed by Robots & Pencils, an award winning company specializing in creating iOS apps and whose owner has a child with a speech delay. Through this collaborative team we have come up with a gorgeous app that is easy to use!

Making See Me Talk gorgeous was one goal, but more importantly See Me Talk had to be easy to use. I think we succeeded! No more searching folders within folders to find that one infrequently used symbol. Now, all the categories conveniently scroll across the top of the screen and the user can see 9 categories at once! No longer will the user have to back up to the previous category to add another symbol to their sentence strip.

Also, to make it even easier, we added a Favourites category. This keeps track of the most regularly used symbols and automatically adds them to the Favourites category. Each time See Me Talk is launched it automatically displays the contents of the Favourites category.

Additionally, we even added a search function to find symbols fast! Our search ability will allow you to quickly type and find any symbol. No more swiping and tapping different categories to find those infrequently used symbols. It's all there when you need it!

See Me Talk comes with a basic vocabulary of symbols but can be easily customized by importing pictures taken with the iPad camera, photos from your iPad photo library, or images downloaded from the internet.

See Me Talk uses leading edge voice technology for a more natural communicative experience. The user can choose a male or female voice or no voice at all if you want the user to practice developing their own speech.

Other key features of See Me Talk include:
- No distractions! The settings menu is hidden under the main screen to keep the user focused on communicating rather than playing;
- Easily to customize!  Simple to add, delete, reorder or edit cards.  You can even pinch to adjust the size or adjust the composition of a picture;
- Convenient!  Print the sentence strip for schedule strips or social scripts used on the fridge, bathroom mirror at home or the locker or note book at school;
- Easy support!  Contact us for support or when you have feedback for us;
- Easy to use!  See Me Talk automatically displays the top 8 used cards when the app is launched. Drag and drop or tap to add a symbol to the sentence strip;
- Easy to delete! Swipe up to remove an individual symbol or tap the trash can to remove all the cards from the sentence strip.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns!
