TapSpeak Choice for iPad

TapSpeak Choice for iPad re-interprets communication boards and speech generation devices for the iPad..

An easy-to-use and comprehensive app that supports communication needs from simple choice selection to complete speech generation.

It's a complete communication board and speech editor and player that saves up to 75% of the setup time over conventional devices and virtually eliminates maintenance time. Use the DynaVox/Mayer-Johnson PCS library, your own photos or images, and geometric symbols for visual targets. You can use text to speech voices provided by Acapela Group (20 languages and 43 voices - see TapSpeak.com for details) or your recorded voice. Boards/pages are easily and quickly set up using convenient vocabulary libraries. Multi-touch is intelligently used with editing and setup to greatly speed up these tasks.

For those whose motor skill abilities make it necessary to use a switch, TapSpeak Choice support using the iPad screen as a switch for scanning and supports AbleNet's Blue2 switch and RJ Cooper's iPad Cordless Super-Switch and iPad Switch Interface for external switches. You can use one or two switches for auto scanning and step scan and choose among a complete array of scanning options (sequential, row/column, step scan and multiple configurable settings). You can even set up separate auditory prompts with a separate message, voice, speaking rate and volume.

Children and adults with autism, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, cortical vision impairment (CVI), stroke, or any disability that impairs their ability to communicate can make use of TapSpeak Choice.
