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.

It is different from most existing products by being free and by its natural language generation with features such as inflection, tenses, using the user's gender (via settings) to alter the first-person sentences and more.
Also, my friends have found using this application to be a fun way to learn basics of new language. :)
The application includes 1000+ icons, categorised and accessible through search. It supports French pretty well, and there is a prototype for English.
Other features include:
* recent pictograms (each category has a tab listing most recently used ones)
* icons tagged with the 6 SPC colors (actions, names, descriptives etc.) for easier identification
* option to display text in capital letters
* option to softly speak each individual word when icon is pressed

It also speaks the text deaf enters.
Our application notifies the deaf when someone calls him by vibrating and flashing.
Deaf Assistant provides a simple to use chatting application user interface with numerous backgrounds and chat bubbles designs with the ability to change font color and size.
It also provides a widget for instant and fast access that will start Deaf Assistant and start listening automatically.

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.
