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.
