Text-oriented alternative communication tool for people who are literate but have difficulty speaking.

It has word prediction, sentence prediction, and a side panel of pre-written words and sentences. It’s cheaper than Proloquo2Go. You might be interested in this if you need AAC with good word prediction and high-quality voices, but not have to pay for picture symbols you’re never going to use. The colours and fonts are customisable. I’m using it for my word-based communication, and Proloquo2Go for my picture-based communication, because it has always been hard for me to switch between picture and word modes on Proloquo2Go (a cognitive problem, not a fault of the program).” Social Skills for Autonomous People blog, USA | http://bit.ly/1j64pfN
