Avaz is an award-winning, research-based Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) app for children with speech difficulties (having Autism, intellectual challenges etc.). Avaz runs on Android-based tablets** (recommended specifications for Android tablets below). It has a powerful keyboard, uses picture symbols and high-quality voice synthesis, to help users communicate and also develop language skills.

Avaz comes with an Indian accented voice and includes culture-appropriate vocabulary related to food (e.g. poori, dal, idli ), festivals (e.g. Diwali, Holi..), etc. The vocabulary is available in English and six Indian languages (Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu), all available in the same app.

There is a 14-day promotional subscription period to the symbols and voices, which you can use to evaluate which configuration of Avaz best meets your child’s needs. With an in-app subscription orpurchase, you can access 15,000+ symbols from Symbolstix, and 4 natural-sounding synthesized IVONA voices


Avaz was developed in collaboration with 25 schools and 500 children, to help children with speech difficulties achieve the most effective communication possible. Avaz is useful for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, Angelman's Syndrome, Aspergers, Apraxia and other non-verbal conditions. Avaz’s user interface is designed to make speech therapy more effective, develop a child’s language, and improve his/her intent to communicate.

Avaz comes with 3 research-based, graded picture vocabularies, and a Core Words set that will help a child begin to communicate. These vocabularies have been designed to facilitate spontaneous novel utterance generation, encouraging a child to not only use language, but also generalize from it. While Avaz helps a child get started quickly with pictures, it's also great for facilitating easy transition into text. Avaz's keyboard has support for saving and loading text, a Quick response bar for frequently-used messages, and a picture-assisted text prediction capability for sight readers.

Avaz features animation for maximizing reinforcement, high-contrast mode for children with visual impairment, and arrow keys for children having difficulties with fine motor control. Subscribers also get fine-grained control over the speech output, with a choice of many natural voices
