Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is a lifeline for people who do not have intelligible speech.
Recent years have seen a move away from bespoke systems to a wider use of tablets, smartphones and apps. While this system is not suitable for all AAC users it has transformed life for many people. AssistiveWare® has been in the vanguard of developments. Their latest app Proloquo4Text® is so intuitive that a user, carer or family member can set it up for prediction and to expand abbreviations. This means the user gets more talk for fewer key strokes. On iOS7 it will work with switches or VoiceOver.
