Summary

Provides a list of phrases and images that can allow people who have trouble vocalising to communicate some of their needs and feelings. Needs specified by the user are spoken by the app. Expressions not available in the lists can be typed in as custom sentences, which are then read by the text-to-speech engine. Can be customised to a user’s particular needs, condition, or disability. A pre-set SOS message can be sent. A pre-arranged call from a designated telephone number will also trigger the app into sending back a reply, with the user’s current location.
