With the app you can create categories, words and phrases, which are placed on large buttons. With these buttons you can create messages that can be shown or spoken.
Speech language and voice
The voice is not part of the app, but the app uses the voice that’s installed on your device. For instance the voices from Google Text-to-Speech. You can change the voice in the settings of your device. You can also download other voices or speech languages from the Google Play Store from companies like SVOX, Acapela or Ivona.

TwoSpeak is an augmentative and alternative communication tool, AAC, to foster the development of communication skills. The application features easy-to-use technology for those who are developing basic language skills and are new to the use of assistive technology.The TwoSpeak teaching system is a low-cost alternative to assistive technology devices costing hundreds of dollars.
Description and Example:
The Two Speak app records 10 seconds audio for playback at the touch of sound-storing buttons. To use the TwoSpeak application, the parent or therapist can record a message for the learner to use. To teach cause and effect for the word 'more,' the user can record the word 'more' before asking questions like: 'Would you like more water?' or 'Would you like to play more?' At first the learner must be guided to press the button to show that it makes sound. Following the response of playback, the parent or therapist should allow more play time or give the learner more water. This linking of question, response, and action will assist in developing more complex levels of communication.
This application is free for all users. Please provide feedback; we do our best to improve our programs.
MTE Mercy does not recommend that this product be used as a substitute for speech therapy. This tool is intended to enhance the learning experience of both parent and therapist.
TwoSpeak is a developing application that is open-source. Check it out on github.com.

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 Bala Learning Centre has been Developing Games and Special Literacy, Communication and Computer Skills for People With Disabilities for over six years.
My Voice My Words is a personal communicator for people who cannot speak. You simply add text to represent your own pictures, when the pictures are touched they will speak the text, or you can directly type into the text box then touch the text box to make it speak. Pictures can be clipart from the Internet, pictures from an external camera or images from the phones built in camera. You are able to have up to 200 pages of pictures. Each picture is able to navigate to another page, in this way a complex vocabulary can be built.
A Movie Demonstration for this and other Programs can be be found on our Website.
My Voice My Words creates a backup file every time you touch the update button in the editor screen.
When you touch the Restore Button the program will load this backup and overwrite the internal working database. I recommend saving a copy of your backup file to your computer and make sure all your images are in the original folder so the database can find them.The backup file is located at the "mnt/sdcard" directory and the file is called "myvoice". When using your Camera, use the lowest resolution settings to keep your stored pictures as small as possible.
If you are using My Voice My Words to make phone calls make sure the volume is set to maximum.
If you need further help please email.
- Easy to use grid system
- Add your own folders/nodes to any existing node
- Add pictures to nodes/folders you add
- Hide or delete existing nodes
- Save phrases for later use
- Many prefilled nodes and folders
NOTE: The first thing this app does is installs the android text-to-speech engine if it can't be found. At the moment the app requires the TTS stuff, but in the future I'll be making the TTS installation transition nicer and add an option to run the app without it entirely.
I built this app for use with my daughter on the autistic spectrum with very limited speech skills. However, it could easily be used for anyone with the following:
- On the autism spectrum
- Asperger syndrome
- Verbal aphasia
I apologize for the lack of helpful icons, but I don't have the budget to hire an icon designer. However, I did give you the ability to take your own picture and assign it to a node being added.
I'm always looking for suggestions! If you feel there's something that could be done better or a feature that's missing, please email me at email@example.com! I love interacting with my users and several of my existing apps are suggestions from them. :)
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

Novi Komunikator (plava ikona) izdaje se kao nova aplikacija što znači da korisničke simbole iz starog Komunikatora (narančasta ikona) nije moguće prebaciti u novi Komunikator.
Korisnici starog Komunikatora mogu istodobno koristiti obje aplikacije (stari i novi Komunikator) na svom uređaju.
