Reviews

Reviewer: Friendship Circle of Michigan, USA
Review: "Voice4u is a revolutionary picture-based augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) app that helps individuals express their feelings, thoughts, actions, and the things they need. It is a perfect solution for learning and communication for individuals with autism. Voice4u includes over 150 pre-loaded icons, and lets you create your own icons and categories."

Review: "This is a vocabulary app that helps people with augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) needs to express thoughts, feelings and needs. The user selects words and phrases to be read aloud, with a choice of words from more than 150 pre-loaded images or from an unlimited number of uploaded images. The vocabulary can be sorted by category, in alphabetical order, or by preference." (see page 50 in weblink)

Reviewer: Blogger on Autism Recovery Community, USA
Review: "A customizable and affordable app. Created by the mother of a child with autism, the app allows people with autism to easily select and tap on an icon and/or text from the menu, then show others a full-screen graphic and play a voice recording, helping facilitate communication for those who might otherwise have difficulties. The app includes more than 120 pictures, ranging from everyday items to emotions, and individuals can add new graphics by taking pictures, and recording an associated sound on the device. Default graphics of Voice4U is the most suited for the needs of school-aged children, but can be used for wider age groups with easy customization."
