Summary

Alternative communication solution for people who have difficulty speaking. Brings speech to non-speaking people. The user types in what they want to say, and the app speaks it aloud. The user can decide whether the app speaks after each word is typed in, or only after a sentence is completed. A ‘Steady hands’ feature makes typing easier for people with limited fine motor skills. ‘Core words and phrases’ grids list essential words and phrases, to save typing time. Text prediction learns the user’s most-frequent words, to make self-expression easier. A choice of three keyboard layouts, and a male or female voice is offered.

Reviews

Reviewer: MND Association forum, USA
Review: “ ‘Verbally’ is a lesson in economy. Only about 200 English-language words make up about 80% of daily conversations. ‘Verbally’ users see text buttons on the top half of the screen, and a keyboard on the bottom. One tab shows about 50 of the most common words in English; another, a list of common phrases. Users can choose one of the text buttons, or start typing. The app employs predictive text technology to recommend complete words and phrases, based on the first few letters typed. The idea is to squeeze more information on each screen, and reduce the number of steps taken to form a sentence.”

Reviewer: Disabled World, USA
Review: “A free augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) aid for people with speech disabilities caused by such things as ALS, apraxia, autism-spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s, stroke, or traumatic brain injury. ‘Verbally’ minimises movement for the user, enabling even those with impaired motor skills to more easily speak unique thoughts and feelings, and to participate in conversations. The simple, intuitive design is ideal for literate children, and for adults with impairments or restrictions in the production of spoken language.”
