It is different from most existing products by being free and by its natural language generation with features such as inflection, tenses, using the user's gender (via settings) to alter the first-person sentences and more.
Also, my friends have found using this application to be a fun way to learn basics of new language. :)
The application includes 1000+ icons, categorised and accessible through search. It supports French pretty well, and there is a prototype for English.
Other features include:
* recent pictograms (each category has a tab listing most recently used ones)
* icons tagged with the 6 SPC colors (actions, names, descriptives etc.) for easier identification
* option to display text in capital letters
* option to softly speak each individual word when icon is pressed
* compatibility with both tablets and mobile phones

If you liked the application, you may donate to allow me to add new features/improvements much more quickly: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=DY6954755BM48
* Make sure you have a text-to-speech engine properly installed (depending on your device, go to “Settings –> Language & Input-> Text-to-Speech output”, or to “Settings->Install voice data” or alike).
* To use French or English you have to set your phone/tablet language to the one you wish to use (go to your phone settings)
The application includes 5000+ ARASAAC pictograms limited to non-commercial use (Creative Commons) that must be redistributed under the same licence.

How to use Easy Speak:
It’s easy! Simply click the buttons and Easy Speak will say what you clicked. You can create thousands of complex sentences with the predefined words that cover a variety of daily tasks like using the bathroom, eating, taking a bath, and going to bed.
With Easy Speak, the user clicks the on screen buttons and your device will say that word or phrase. specific words are color coded to make finding crucial words easier to help the user increase their speed completing sentences.
Type and Speak:
Easy Speak also includes a text to speech area where the user the click on the bottom text box that says ’Enter text…’. This allows them to type ANYTHING they want and Easy Speak will say it back in clear english using text to speech technologies!
What sets Easy Speak apart from other AAC's are two things. Easy Speak uses the Sound Board approach with predefined words that wrap around the screen and are always there as the user navigates through the context specific Panels. The Panel is in the center of the screen and is colored blue to separate it from the other buttons. This panel approach has folders with key things like Food, Bath and Bed Time activities, ect. that the user selects to bring up relevant words and phrases for that activity.
I would love to hear back from the users on this app. I'm always interested in improving my apps and never want to disappoint my users, so take the time to let me know how I'm doing, or what areas of the app could use improvement.
PLEASE NOTE: It is always best to seek professional consultation as to what is best for the patient! Easy Speak is meant to be a extremely low cost AAC solution.
In order to cater for a wide range of screen sizes, you may want to add / remove columns (in the options menu) to get the size of the buttons right for your device and fingers.
This App uses the Text To Speech features of Android devices, so you may need to go to Settings, then Language & Input, then Text To Speech, and turn on the text to speech option.

Vocal Slides is an application born from the idea of a parent whose son is autistic.
This application does NOT cure autism, but has the precise aim of creating between father and
son game enough to entice a child to communicate.
The ingredients that are the basis of the game are:
1. The child shows an interest in this "strange toy" that the father uses every day and when it happens that the father is talking on the phone, the child perceives that something happens;
2. The father is the leading figure for the child, is his model to get ahead in life and the world around him uncommunicative;
3. Have a program to this "father's strange toy" that the child can use together with him and that has characteristics similar to VocalSlides.
The task of VocalSlides is to have a tool that allows the child to associate images of objects in your daily life and recognizable in their own environment, with recorded sounds or words.
What is autism?
Autism is a developmental disorder of an individual.
It is, unfortunately, characterized by a strong gap in social communication.
The repetitive behavior and little interest in what surrounds it are the most obvious features.
Can I use VocalSlides for other purposes?
You can use VocalSlides as you like and we hope that you find it useful.

'YesNo’ can teach children or adults who have very little or no language abilities to initiate communication and have control over their environment in a fun and functional way. Other fun and motivating therapy ideas using ‘YesNo’ are: Choosing food during mealtimes, choosing a favourite DVD, consenting to medical procedures, answering questions about pain and illness and answering questions during day-to-day conversation.
'Yes' and 'No' are two of the best words to start with when working on communication as they allow you to control your environment in so many motivating ways. As it is developed by two Speech and Language Therapists (Pathologists) working as clinicians in the Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) field, it’s development is based both on the most up-to-date research and on clinical experience.
