Father invents Speaks4me® - an electronic communication and voice output application device

Shared by Patricia Pereira on 2015-06-21 13:56

About the solution

Speaks4me allows the user to choose images in order to communicate needs or thoughts. And while it's a pretty simple system, it might make quite a difference in the life of someone who was previously unable to express himself in a manner that could be understood by those around him.

Speaks4me® is easy to learn and use, simply “drag & drop” the required picture image(s) from the main window to the “virtual” sentence strip to create a single or correctly structured multiple word sentence, then press “Speak” and Speaks4me® will speak the words.

As speaks4me® is similar to the Picture Exchange Communication System or PECS™; it will be easily recognisable to children or adults already familiar with it and allow seamless transition and progression.
