GoTalk NOW

GoTalk NOW

Attainment Company

Attainment has been making augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) tools for 25 years. Our experience is front and center in GoTalk NOW, a flexible, easy-to-use, yet powerful app for people who have difficulty speaking.

NOW combines the simplicity of GoTalks (Attainment’s popular original AAC device) with the dynamic capabilities of an iPad. GoTalk NOW has all the essentials of an effective AAC app, like adjustable page layouts, customizable navigation, recorded and text-to-speech capabilities, and an included symbol set. But we sweated the details to create unique and compelling features that clearly separate NOW from other AAC apps.

The new NOW offers three styles of communication pages: Standard, Express, and Scenes. In Standard pages, the action occurs when the location is pressed. In Express pages, recorded or text-to-speech messages build in a speech bar and play in sequence when the bar is pressed. Scene pages are built around a single photo or image. When you arrange invisible hotspots over people or objects in the photo, the hotspots play speech, music, or videos! Feel free to mix and match pages within a communication book.

Create as many communication books as you need, each with unique settings and unlimited pages. Then share these books with other users via WiFi, and back them up for safekeeping via Dropbox or any Mac/PC. Envision the impact of blending video, music, and jump to actions among your pages. How cool is it to have your own private online galley to store and save your templates (up to five communication pages) for free, and to email these templates to parents and colleagues! Plus, GoTalk NOW is a full-feature scanning app!

Features:
• Choose 1, 2, 4, 9, 16, 25 or 36 locations per page.
• Use images from your iPad camera, photo library, or the Imagine Symbol set.

PandaPal (AAC)

PandaPal (AAC)

Kim Scott, M.S., CCC-SLP

PandaPal - Autism Communication System is a user friendly communication tool that has been proven over the past 7 years to help facilitate communication and improve language skills, designed by Kim Scott-DeLand, M.S., CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist. This communication system allows non-verbal children and adults to exchange information by activating icons and creating sentence strips to exchange information. Panda Pal has proven to improve the speech and language skills of thousands of children with autism in over 200 countries and growing! Panda Pal was the first original application to use real photos and has its unique “touch and hold” button to avoid mistakes and over activation of icons. Panda Pal uses an adorable gender-neutral panda bear, your child’s pal, to help him/her communicate throughout their day!

3 APP’S IN ONE!
• “First & Then,” “Schedule Board” and an “AAC device” are all included in Panda Pal.

PANDA PAL PRO
• Panda Pal comes with 12 common categories, however the Pro Version allows the user to add as many photos/categories as needed.
• Categories can be deleted, added or replaced and customized to meet the needs of the user.
• Once a category is selected the user is taken to a new screen of that chosen page.
• Each page comes with a sample of approximately 20+ icons, all of which can also be modified to meet the specific needs of the user.
• PandaPal is as customizable as you would like to make it (photo, audio, word) and accessible in ALL languages!

REAL HD PHOTOS
• App uses real photos, so you wont see any confusing abstract drawings.
• Kim has found that by using real photos her clients are more successful with communication and demonstrated 70% less frustration and confusion.

SIGN LANGUAGE PHOTOS
• Used for certain high frequency words such as; “want,” “please,” “yes/no” and "more."

CUSTOMIZE AUDIO
• This entire app was designed to be modified to meet the individual needs of the user and to allow for language growth.
• Words, phrases and entire messages are recorded in digitized speech, however users can choose to re-record in their own voice or a familiar voice of mom/dad or a sibling, which has been proven to help children with autism feel more comfortable and help develop verbal speech.
• Real speech provides natural prosody and allows the user to hear and model accurate speech as opposed to unnatural ‘robotic speech.’

INCIDENTAL LEARNING
• Achieved by teaching your child to read by placing words directly on top or below each photo, you can modify this in settings.
• Font size, color and style can be modified to meet your needs.

TOUCH-AND-HOLD
• It is a unique, one of a kind feature, designed by Kim Scott-DeLand, M.S., CCC-SLP, to help prevent small hands from unintentionally tapping the wrong icons.
• When this feature is turned on, it requires that you touch and hold the intended icon for one second, as displayed by a progress meter, before activation occurs.
• Now for the first time, users can touch icons without accidentally selecting them.
• Kim designed this feature after hours of research with her clients and it has been proven to help clients make accurate choices.
• Touch-And-Hold is optional and can be turned on or off in settings.

CUSTOMIZE ICON SIZE
• This is the first and only app that allows for the icon to be easily modified to fit your child’s needs.
• Extra large icons (2 icons fit the entire page) or as small as 24 icons per page for higher-level language learners.

DATA COLLECTION
• Just with one tap of the star button saves a sentence that your child created.
• Watch your child’s language develop and keep a record of your child’s success!
• Great tool for SLP’s and educators.

FIRST & THEN

• For example, First "homework” and Then "snack.”
• Simple select the events from the built in library or take a photo and add them into place of either ‘First’ or ‘Then.’

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.
