About this app

Now you can publish your Alexicom augmentative communication pages to your Android tablet or phone and take them anywhere. Communication pages with text, images, and AT&T Natural Voices speech output can be downloaded directly from the Alexicom AAC server or imported from your computer with a USB cable. Once the pages are on your device, a data connection is no longer required. (Full access to the Alexicom server requires an active Alexicom account, however this app includes 38 demo pages which are accessible immediately.)

Alexicom AAC lets you use your Android phone or tablet as an augmentative communication device. We offer over 1,200 pre-made pages and over 7,000 images in our public libraries, which include twelve pre-made page sets: ChildPreA/B, Child1A/B, Child2, Child Intermediate, PicSpeechmaker, Adult1, Adult2, Speechmaker, Healthcare, and Spanish Child1. You can easily import these pages into your own online library, customize them, and/or create your own pages. AT&T Natural Voices offer text-to-speech output in 20 voices and five languages.

Because your pages are stored on the Alexicom AAC server, picture importation is easy. You can upload your own pictures from your hard drive, camera, or flash drive, or copy them straight from the internet using any of the popular search engines. It’s as easy as pasting the image URL into the cell you’re editing and pressing ‘Update’. Page creation and linking are equally simple.

Alexicom is not device dependent. Your pages can be accessed from any Mac, PC, or Linux computer, Android or iOS device, or other device with a standard web browser. Pages can be shared between SLPs, teachers, and caregivers and edited without taking the device away from the user. Use your pages online or offline and publish them to multiple devices. Easily print your pages and even use them on an interactive white board.

Free features include:

• In-app page creation and editing

• Direct camera image acquisition

• Bluetooth and direct touch scanning

• Word prediction (XT9 where available)

• On-board text-to-speech in over 25 languages (uses any installed TTS engine in any language)

• Bluetooth & direct touch scanning

• Auto-scan & step-scan

• Sequential & row/column scanning

• Auditory preview scanning

• Automatic home page loading

• Password-protected editing and settings menus

• Ability to merge, replace, and delete pages

• 38 speaking, linking demo pages

This version allows direct publishing of our public library page sets to your Android device. Easily publish an entire page set in 3 + 1 button presses. From the Publish New tab: 1) Select a page set, 2) check Select All, and 3) hit Publish (Merge to keep existing or Replace to erase all). Once the content has been packed, the "Click here to download" link will appear. Click it and the page set will automatically be installed on your device.

Explore Speechmaker (196 pages), PicSpeechmaker (243 pages), Child Intermediate (318 pages), and many other page sets.

I was looking around for free AAC apps that allows users to be flexible with the pictures, the voice output and to transition into fringe vocab without the hassle of manually changing screens for android and ios. This is by far the only app that met all these requirements. It's a functional AAC app that's free!

Have just loaded up app and am finding settings very limited as I would like my custom page to default without a password to come out of page. Would be good if there was a help page to assist setting up and customising pages or icons on page in a format to meet dexterity of user.
