OneVoice Lite - AAC - 0 views

  •  
    Full version is $200
    "This is a lite version of OneVoice and does not include speech capabilities. Purchase the full version if you need voices.

    OneVoice turns the iPad or iPhone into an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device. Building on the simplicity of iOS devices, OneVoice is easy to understand, and designed for usability above everything else.

    Though OneVoice comes with a pre-populated vocabulary (focused on children) the real value is that you can easily add your own phrases and photos to create a custom experience.

    Features include:

    - 4 High Quality Voices (Not included in the lite version)
    - Over 100 custom made icons
    - Drag and drop organization of phrases and categories
    - Choose and crop your own photos from the device photo gallery or your camera.
    - Simple, focused application. Users won't get lost in many levels of categories and be unable to find their way back "
