About the solution

“I've had some very positive feedback from users and speech therapists alike. The main objective is to provide an affordable but professional solution to everyone. I have no intention of stopping development. I will continue to improve and implement features. This project is so close to my heart because I actually use the application every day”, Owen explained.

SayIt! Consist of an augumentative and alternative communication app that uses a functioning word prediction system that works by allowing the patient to type what they want to say at a fast rate.

The developers spent four years working on the app, which was released in 2017.

The app is free and is available for iOS and Android.

Owen McGirr, born in 1995, in Ireland, has cerebral palsy and created SayIt!, a mobile app designed to help disabled people who have a hard time communicating. Owen had the idea for this app when he felt the need to speak to the person who was driving him in his van.
