Reviews

Reviewer: National group specialising in disability, Ireland
Review: “To date, I can only recommend ‘Predictable’. I am very optimistic about the use of apps for service users who have limited verbal skills, and can use hand-held devices as an augmentative communication tool. But I have some concerns about how funding for such apps (and the necessary hardware) will be sourced.”

Reviewer: Vermont Family Network (VFN), USA
Review: “A cost-effective and unique communication-aid solution for people who have a disability that results in speech impairment. Users can type a message more efficiently with a sophisticated word-prediction engine, and it speaks the message, offering a range of voices.”
