InnerVoice Free: augmentative alternative communication for iOS

By MotionPortrait Free

Developer's Description

InnerVoice makes learning to communicate fun for people on the autism spectrum! Watch your pictures, line drawings, or toys come to life, as they speak in a variety of voices and show you how to talk, using video self-modeling. InnerVoice can function as a powerful communication app or as an entertaining and interactive toy, which creates an engaging social experience. InnerVoice will immerse you into a total communication environment, where you not only hear a desired message but see it being produced -- by a photograph of a face, a toy, or drawing. This award-winning and affordable app takes full advantage of all the iPad has to offer. Play is an important part of learning for any child. In fact, engagement helps improve just about everyones learning experience. InnerVoice can be used for play -- watch people talk like a giant, a child, or an elf -- its hilarious! Laughter brings people together and makes them want to continue interacting. Who says learning to communicate needs to be frustrating or boring? InnerVoice is designed by speech-language pathologists and recommended for parents, educators, assistive technology specialists, speech-language pathologists, or anyone who wants a high-quality, state-of-the-art, affordable solution for children and adults with communication challenges such as autism, ALS, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, stroke, traumatic brain injury, selective mutism, apraxia, or dysarthria.Edu-tainment -- teaching through a medium that both educates and entertains -- MotionPortrait and co-designer iTherapys system emphasizes engagement and joint attention. At the same time, InnerVoice incorporates speech-pathologist-designed, evidence-based practices that improve speech, language, communication, and social skills. Recent research articles have postulated that education, entertainment, and video self-modeling can provide numerous benefits for individuals with autism.Incredibly affordable -- download InnerVoice and receive numerous premium ground-breaking features at a very low cost:* Patent-pending interactive video self-modeling, which gives users the ability to watch themselves speak clearly and effectively -- as if their own reflections were teaching themselves how to speak! One of the attributes of self-modeling is that positive results are seen almost immediately.
