ChatterBoards AAC

ChatterBoards AAC

Paul Popiel

The cheapest AAC app compared to others offering the same features.
Chatterboards was professionally developed, in collaboration with Speech Therapists and end users, with the aim of providing people in need with an AAC app that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars or require monthly subscriptions.

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

Continually updated with new features and enhancements. All suggestions and/or requests are considered.

Full feature list:

- Create and use vocabulary boards, including multiple paged vocabularies, for forming sentences.
- Board levels. Levels provide a way to progressively build up a user's vocabulary. A limited set of words can be displayed at each level, progressively building up the number of words shown until the full board is used. Words/Tiles do not move position between boards, allowing users to remember and learn a number of words at a time without them moving.
- Create and use basic phrase boards which associate a basic full phrase/sentence to an individual button, providing quick responses or questions for basic communication needs.
- Ability to create and switch between different profiles, each with their own set of boards and settings. Ideal for households with multiple users, or specialists with multiple clients.
- All board dimensions supported up to and included 16x16 (rows x columns) per page.
- Fully customisable buttons. Change their text, colour (border and background), image and audio playback
- Change a buttons image from either your devices photo library, camera, or from over 4000 sample symbols.
- Includes over 3500 symbols provided by Mulberry Symbols (https://mulberrysymbols.org/)
- Includes over 500 symbols designed by Freepik and distributed by Flaticon.
- Save images from the internet, or from your own symbol libraries, into your photo library for use.
- Supports text-only and image-only buttons.
- Fully customisable button audio. Use the Text to Speech synthesiser or record your own voice(s) using your devices microphone.
- Keyboard input mode. Alternatively to using symbols, manually enter desired vocabulary with keyboard input.
- Text to Speech supports all iOS packaged languages (over 50 languages/dialects). Includes multiple male and female voices for English.
- Change rate, pitch and/or volume of Text to Speech synthesiser.
- Set App wide voice/language, rate, pitch and volume default values for the Text to Speech synthesiser.
- Fully customisable boards. Change dimensions anytime, add, delete and move buttons as desired.
- Copy existing boards to create new permutations
- Copy/paste individual tiles
- Share boards with other users of ChatterBoards. Use Apple AirDrop, Mail, Message, or any other valid installed application on your device.
- The ability to lock controls, e.g. editing. Like a parental control.
- Supports both iPhone and iPad

Also a number of Arasaac Symbols are included as samples (approx. 20).

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!

AAC Text to Speech

AAC Text to Speech

Theory of Mind

Have something to say? Say it and let your voice be heard. AAC Text to speech puts speech in the palms of your hands. Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices are designed to improve the communication abilities for individuals with speech and language impairments.

FEEDBACK
"I am a speech-language pathologist. I have students with a wide variety of disabilities. [One of my students] has been texting on her iPhone and we a really had some difficulty convincing her to use a text to voice app. However once she started it was so user friendly she just took off with it!"

"I am blind and use the Voiceover screenreader and a Braille display...I have a friend who is deaf, and we usually communicate through texting and instant messaging. If we were to meet in person I think that this would be a very ideal app for us to use to communicate since we'd be typing back and forth to each other in real time on the same device, and we'd each be able to read in real time what the other is writing. Great job on making the app accessible with VoiceOver."

"You have created an absolutely indispensable app for individuals with speech and language impairments."

WHO CAN BENEFIT?
Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices help individuals with any of a wide range of speech and language impairments, including: congenital impairments such as cerebral palsy, down syndrome or muscular dystrophy (MS), intellectual impairment and autism, acquired conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's disease, as well as impairments from apraxia, ataxia, stroke, or traumatic brain injury. AAC can be a helpful addition to a person's communication or a temporary aid.

APP FEATURES
• Male and Female voices
• Abiltiy to Speak each word while typing
• Ability to save and recall phrases
• Auto-correct spelling
• On Screen Yes/No Buttons

Classic TC with WordPower

Classic TC with WordPower

Prentke Romich Company

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.
