Great Intro to AAC for Spanish-English Bilingual Families with Android devices. Easy to use and navigate. I'm an SLP and have been using it with my EI clients and so far so good! I like the option of taking my own pictures and also the voices articulate well. Would like some children's voices as options, but overall for a FREE app, this can't be beat. Thanks to the team that saw the need and built this app!

This is the one. Maybe not if your motor-function isn't great - a disabled adult might need a friend help make and organize their buttons and categories, but the buttons are hopefully big enough for use. The delete text button might be more challenging, and something parents might have to help children with, and help with button layout. Not only can you completely customize text label, order of appearance, and colour of both button and labels, you can add your own pictures for the labels!

Amazing app! Highly customizable and bilingual if you speak Spanish and English. You can add images to the buttons and customize colors. You can also create categories for them and there's even a typing box option. This will make communication easier for me, thank you!
