If you are using JABtalk as an AAC device for an individual with special needs (down syndrome, autism, etc...), we strongly recommend having the individual assessed by a speech-language pathologist to ensure JABtalk is the most appropriate solution for the the individual's needs.
It is different from most of existing products by being free, by it's grammatically correct natural language generation features (inflection, tenses, using the setting user gender to alter first person sentences1 and more) and by usage of gesture search on mobile phones where keyboard is not reliable because is small screen.
Also, my friends have found it to be a fun toy to learn basics of foreign language :)
The application includes ~5000 icons obtained from arasaac.org, where ~900 are properly categorized, and others are accessible through search. It supports French language well, and there is an early prototype for English too.
Other features include:
* recent phrases and pictogram history (each category lists most used ones on top) accessibility
* for easier identification icons tagged with the 6 SPC colors (actions, names, descriptives etc)
* option to display text in capital letters
* compatibility with both Tablets and mobile phones

* install "gesture search"
* About Languages and Text-to-Speech:
* to use French or English you have to set your phone/tablet language to the one you wish to use (go to your phone Settings)
* you will also need text to speech engine to be installed (go to Settings->Install voice data etc)
---- For much higher quality voices you may get the SVOX voices from android market ( https://market.android.com/details?id=com.svox.classic ) for around 3 EUR (include free fully featured two week trial). Note: I'm not affiliated with them, just used and liked their quality.

A fully customisable communication app for anyone who has difficulty communicating non verbally.
This app leads to a more structured way of forming a sentence, so each word suggests what the next word would be.
"I want" leads to food, drink, people, places etc.
"I want" "a person" leads to Dad, Mum, Teacher each with their own photo
The sentence then becomes
"I want Mum"
In this app every image can changed. You can select the image from your gallery, downloads or photograph an existing image or item. So you can make it match existing symbols the child is used to using and photographs of the actual people or item the child knows.
The size of the list is also limited to eight icons to a page to make it nice and easy to see all the options.
Use photographs or images which are familiar to the user.
Long click ANY icon to edit it's picture or text.
All text user configurable.
Comes with sample/starter set of images, menus and phrases.
Communication can be kept simple for younger children or those of limited ability and grow as their ability grows.
User selectable languages or the app will adapt to the phone default language.
The AACSpeechBuddy solution allows users to quickly and easily create customized Speech Sets using their own photos or collected images, or using images from the AACSpeech.com image repository.
With the AACSpeech.com image repository you have access to over 2000+ images from the Mulberry Symbols collection by Paxtoncrafts Charitable Trust.
These images are internationally recognized standardized PECS images, and are now available FREE for use in your own custom speech sets.
Users can also share content with each other , allowing Teachers & Parents to create and share Speech Sets - that can be loaded onto the AACSpeechBuddy APP
Teachers & Parents can create and group Speech Sets into profiles - which allow the sets to load on ANY AACSpeechBuddy Application - by simply entering the profile #ID in the AACSpeechBuddy App

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

'YesNo’ can teach children or adults who have very little or no language abilities to initiate communication and have control over their environment in a fun and functional way. Other fun and motivating therapy ideas using ‘YesNo’ are: Choosing food during mealtimes, choosing a favourite DVD, consenting to medical procedures, answering questions about pain and illness and answering questions during day-to-day conversation.
'Yes' and 'No' are two of the best words to start with when working on communication as they allow you to control your environment in so many motivating ways. As it is developed by two Speech and Language Therapists (Pathologists) working as clinicians in the Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) field, it’s development is based both on the most up-to-date research and on clinical experience.
Visit http://www.annaspeak.blogspot.co.nz/ for more hints and tips or to comment and give us ideas!
It is aimed at non-verbal kids on the Autism Spectrum and for anyone who could benefit from visual communication tools (regardless of label!).

They offer new ways of overcoming disabilities and have the potential to make life easier for the disabled. This is HelpTalk's purpose.
HelpTalk is directed at people unable to communicate fluently orally or through writing with health professionals, family or any other person.
HelpTalk allows users to create sets of actions that represent their needs in terms of communication, with the actions most suited for each disability/user.
When the user taps each of the options the device speaks the selected command.
HelpTalk has features related to communication and emergency:
With HelpTalk, you can create a profile containing the actions most useful to any situation. A user can create a profile suited for their day-to-day life, a specific event, travelling, education, etc..
It helps people unable to communicate in a traditional fashion (people with aphasia, tracheostomized, ventilated with endotracheal tube, muteness, autism, illiterate, other language, children, etc.) to express their basic needs.
When each action is tapped, the device speaks the respective command.
Create profiles in multiple languages (English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Finish, Danish, Hungarian, Norwegian, Polish, Swedish).
All you need is a Text-to-speech engine for the selected language installed on the device.
Speak any sentence
If what you want to express isn't contained in the currently loaded profile, just swicth to the "Talk" screen and you can write any sentence you want.
HelpTalk remembers the most common sentences typed, so that you can have easy access after writing just a few characters.
Users with reduced dexterity
For users with reduced dexterity, HelpTalk presents two big Yes/No buttons.
If what the user wants to express isn't contained in the currently loaded profile, the user can switch to this screen to answer basic questions.
HelpTalk allows the user to configure an emergency phone number and an emergency message.
When the user taps the S.O.S. button, an SMS message is sent to the configured number. The user also has the option to include his current location's coordinates.
In cases where a user might suffer from any condition that may leave him disoriented (Alzheimer, Parkinson, dementia, etc.), being able to be located by relatives is crucial.
Using HelpTalk, when the phone receives a specific message from a specific number, it replies with the user's current location. For increased security, the user is allowed to set a custom trigger message and the phone number authorized to send the location requests.
HelpTalk uses the device's Text-to-speech engine to speak all the actions.
Android allows you to download and install additional Text-to-speech languages and voices.
You can search the Google Play app store for other alternatives.
HelpTalk provides links to Text-to-speech engines in other languages or with different voices. These links are provided for your convenience only since HelpTalk is not responsible for the development or maintenance of those engines.
