- Easy to use grid system
- Add your own folders/nodes to any existing node
- Add pictures to nodes/folders you add
- Hide or delete existing nodes
- Save phrases for later use
- Many prefilled nodes and folders
NOTE: The first thing this app does is installs the android text-to-speech engine if it can't be found. At the moment the app requires the TTS stuff, but in the future I'll be making the TTS installation transition nicer and add an option to run the app without it entirely.
I built this app for use with my daughter on the autistic spectrum with very limited speech skills. However, it could easily be used for anyone with the following:
- On the autism spectrum
- Asperger syndrome
- Verbal aphasia
I apologize for the lack of helpful icons, but I don't have the budget to hire an icon designer. However, I did give you the ability to take your own picture and assign it to a node being added.
I'm always looking for suggestions! If you feel there's something that could be done better or a feature that's missing, please email me at email@example.com! I love interacting with my users and several of my existing apps are suggestions from them. :)

Vocal Slides is an application born from the idea of a parent whose son is autistic.
This application does NOT cure autism, but has the precise aim of creating between father and
son game enough to entice a child to communicate.
The ingredients that are the basis of the game are:
1. The child shows an interest in this "strange toy" that the father uses every day and when it happens that the father is talking on the phone, the child perceives that something happens;
2. The father is the leading figure for the child, is his model to get ahead in life and the world around him uncommunicative;
3. Have a program to this "father's strange toy" that the child can use together with him and that has characteristics similar to VocalSlides.
The task of VocalSlides is to have a tool that allows the child to associate images of objects in your daily life and recognizable in their own environment, with recorded sounds or words.
What is autism?
Autism is a developmental disorder of an individual.
It is, unfortunately, characterized by a strong gap in social communication.
The repetitive behavior and little interest in what surrounds it are the most obvious features.
Can I use VocalSlides for other purposes?
You can use VocalSlides as you like and we hope that you find it useful.
This is created for the correct usage of pecs and that is to use pictures as your child's vocabulary. This is often mixed up with using pictures for the parent or therapist to tell the child what they want the child to do. That is not pecs.
This is created for non-verbal children with Autism or other learning disabilities.
*This is my first app ever created. I decided to make this because I was tired of having to pay so much money for applications and device's that are for autism. I do not understand why these companies think that when you have an autistic child that you have the finances for something like this!
That device is $230.00 USD! I have always wanted something like that for my son who is on the spectrum and non-verbal. After seeing that price and realising that nothing is going to be done for this at a lower price I decided to make one myself. *
Please leave feedback and suggestions.
Thank you very much
