Reviews

Reviewer: Vermont Family Network (VFN), USA
Review: "Combines location and vocabulary to produce efficient communication for individuals who have difficulty speaking. Locabulary is an alternative to bulky communication devices, with text-to-speech phrases under categories, including: ‘quick phrases’, ‘moods’, ‘assistance’, ‘restaurants’."

Reviewer: Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Association (CdLSA), Australia
Review: "Locabulary Lite has expanded category and phrase settings. Users can create and link location presets for points of interest (POIs) to a category or bank of phrases. The app speaks text-message abbreviations (eg, type "cul", and "See you later" is spoken). You can also backup and save all phrase categories to a remote Locabulary server."

Reviewer: Central Coast Children's Foundation (CCCF), USA
Review: "This app has been well-received by users with and without communication needs. Many would like to see a wider choice of categories, as well as images, but, overall, feel that Locabulary Lite is a novel concept. People in the alternative-and-augmentative communication (AAC) field in particular believe it has the potential to be an essential tool for those with communication difficulties."
