Quick Talk AAC has been effectively used by individuals with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, apraxia, and other special needs, both at home and in a school environment. There is a huge need for an assistive technology that can equip those who are non-verbal with the ability to communicate. Typical Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices and apps are either too expensive or too complicated. We have set out to change this by providing an affordable solution to everyone with access to a mobile phone or tablet. We developed Quick Talk with the advice and guidance from experts in speech therapy, educators, and individuals who use AAC devices to pack it full of features, while keeping simplicity and cost in mind. The outcome is a one-of-a-kind app that we believe will change many lives.
We believe Quick Talk is going to make a huge difference in peoples' lives and are committed to its continual improvement. Please email us any suggestions you may have about how we can further improve Quick Talk as we take your feedback seriously.

Literatu works for any subject, across any class level in any language and importantly, with any level of teacher technical ability.
We join the domain knowledge and expertise of the teacher with tools that let teachers create interactive, measured activities able to be used across any device, in minutes.
Any activity ?
Anything that teachers have in a digital or paper format, can be made interactive in minutes. It's that simple. Many teachers quickly create the framework and content of an activity in Powerpoint, Word or Google Docs (any package they are familiar with) and simply add interactivity with Literatu. Other teachers use Literatu to make the online activity from scratch. It doesn't matter.
Literatu is designed to work with what you know and are familiar with, opening up your 'bottom drawer' of materials to new possibilites, whilst giving you the ability to explore new ideas and activities. Teachers have the ability to put their activities onto any student screen.
'Activities' can include anything from in class assessments to quizzes, homework, revision, flash cards or tutorials; anything you want to connect and interact with your students.
Literatu has very powerful marking and scoring capabilities. Activities can be set to auto mark or teacher manually mark. Any way you like to score, you are in control. All results flow to online grade books and monitoring dashboards.
Interactive? Literatu lets teachers drag and drop interactive input fields over content. It takes minutes and is as simple to use as PowerPoint.
Literatu lets teachers build many types of interactions. Free draw, pictures, text, paragraphs, essays, numbers, multiple choice, video links, audio links, annotations, help, guidance and feedback can all be quickly added to build the student experience.
Literatu is fully integrated with Google Education domains and Edmodo, making the integration into the classroom seamless and quick.
Well we call iPad, Web, PC, Mac, Android Tablets and phones plus ChromeBooks any device. Teachers simply focus on creating the activity, Literatu makes it come alive on all of these devices, in exactly the same format!
In Minutes is our promise.
Teachers can sign up for a sample class online. Literatu is available direct from Literatu, via the Google App store and Edmodo online store.

Do aliens or extraterrestrials really exist? And if so are they or have they been on Earth? There is plenty of evidence these days to support a ‘yes’ answer to both of those questions,…if you are willing to look. The Real Alien News app, you will keep you up to day with the latest UFO sightings, UFO video footage, evidence of UFOs, and UFO news.
Thanks to the recent proliferation of video capturing technology in smart phones and tablets, people all over the world are now able to quickly video whatever they are witnessing.

And that’s just some of what you will see in the Real Alien News app.
Archeology has uncovered mountains of evidence that real aliens have been interwoven and intimately involved throughout humanity’s history – cave art depicting humans interacting with aliens, UFOs, aliens with devices, ancient stone carvings in places like Angkor watt with aliens on horseback, elongated skulls (with double cranial capacity) found all over the planet, and indigenous cultures that report contact with aliens – and have detailed knowledge of the stars to prove it.
Did an ape really get it on with a pig as postulated by some famous geneticists to explain why human DNA is a mixture of ape and porcine DNA? Or were the first humans really genetically engineered by ancient aliens as believed by some and as described in the Sumerian tablets? And whats going on on Mars? Who or what is living on Mars? When you start to did into the facts, you will be surprised too.
The Real Alien News app will set you on the right track and put you in touch with a lot of hard-core evidence and videos that prove that aliens are real, and very much involved in our history and possibly daily lives. They may even be here now.
In the Real Alien News app, you will get:
- the latest alien sightings and news
- real alien videos and alien video footage
- archeological evidence of aliens in our history
Are you ready to be convinced? Or will you walk away with even more questions?
PLEASE NOTE: The content in the Real Alien News app is publicly available on YouTube. We have not created it or modified it in any way, nor have we uploaded any of these videos to YouTube. The value of this app is that it searches out, finds, and collects the information for you, providing you easy and convenient access all in one handy place, so that all you have to do is download and launch the app. The legwork is already done for you and delivered straight to your mobile device.
