I like it and it seem like what we need. I think we would try to ues it for my son. Who's on the spectrum and is 8yrs old. He has some speech but not much. This would work well for him to describe his own feelings. However it seems like it would be difficult for him to understand how to use it. It needs less "categories"(e.g nouns, verbs) and more 3 word fragment sentences using sightwords. It's a bit to advanced for his age group. Also It keeps crashing. You've definitely got something good going though.
Not for everyone I was looking for an app to help a friend communicate, after she landed in the hospital. Unfortunately, most of the apps (including this one) assume that the person can open their eyes. This app is unusually large, so I have to uninstall it. Thankfully, there is another app called TouchSpeller and it allows anyone to spell words using only one finger, even if they can't see the screen.
Nice idea but poorly executed Some issues with text to speech: the pronunciation of the word, "category" is like kate-eh-gory. Even someone from down under might have issues with the sound of this. Some incorrectly spelled words translate to text to speech incorrectly, such as "scissors" spelled "scissorses". App needs work if communication is to have accuracy.
App doesn't have option to not vibrate on press, which bleeds through even though I have haptic feedback globally off on my phone. That's 3 phones in a row that it overrides the option for no haptic feedback, ever. My condition causes spasm with that sensation, instant phone drop. Why no simple "off" option IN THE APP since it seems to be able to override the phone settings. Got a reply that said "there would be an option..." do no idea what to do with that! No in app option, no turning it off, there's no option in phone settings to have not any haptic ever in anything. Wish there was.
Does no work for me tablet. For some reason, after i updated the app, it stopped working and crashes on start. So have uninstalled it
MAY GOD BLESS THIS DEVELOPER This Augmentative and Alternative Communication App is way too much helpful for speech disabled people. I found it very diversed and with loads of options, helping person to talk with others.
