TalkTablet US from Gus Communication Devices is an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) app for the iPad designed for people with impaired speech from causes such as autism, aphasia, Down syndrome, or stroke.
TalkTablet provides a wide range of pre-made communication pages and a message window option to aid sentence building.
The pages are based on functional language and employ Fitzgerald Key color-coding guidelines, but can be customized around a core word approach.
Every button and page (folder) has its own settings and supports different colors, fonts, and page layouts.
Customizing TalkTablet vocabulary and layouts is simple. Slide a button to change the number of words/cells on a page from 1 to 200.
The TalkTablet library contains nearly 12,000 SymbolStix communication symbols. As new words are needed, add images directly from your iPad camera or photo library.
TalkTablet uses Acapela speech synthesis to generate six English voices: 3 female, 1 male, and 2 children's). It also has an automated recording feature for adding new words or phrases.
TalkTablet US costs $89.00. Educational institutions in the US purchasing more than 20 copies can receive a 50% discount under Apple's Volume Licensing Program.
Gus Communication Devices also donates one copy of TalkTabletUS each week to a family in need. Purchase includes free telephone, email, and live chat technical support.
