Summary

ChatAble is a communication app which acts as both a grid communication aid, and a scene display app. These two proven formats have been brought together to provide an easy new system for users to interact with other people in a fun and meaningful way. ChatAble is designed for people with autism, cerebral palsy, aphasia and a range of users who require aided communication.ChatAble is the first iOS application in the world to contain ModeTalker voices, which allow a user to create their own synthetic voice – for free – with their own accent, pitch and cadence. ModelTalker also allows the user to bank their own voice, or have a friend or relative give their voice to use; ModelTalker voices let the user sound like themselves again. For those who have physical impairments, switch access makes it possible to communicate using ChatAble without touching the screen. You can use one or two switches to control the scanning and change the scanning features (e.g. scanning rate or number of cycles). The app is CE certified.

Reviews

Reviewer: Walton-le-Dale Primary School in the UK
Review: The main benefits are the great ease of use for people with disabilities (e.g. MS). Clear buttons and simple interface. Excellent for more elderly people as well who can use the well thought out interface to personalise the content. However it would be nice to be able to customise the size of the icons.
