At last, after a summer break in which we have completed a harsh and complicated hosting moving, we are back. It wouldn’t have been possible without the precious help and support of Iñaki, the best web designer and administrator anyone could dream of.
Of course, there is still a lot of work to be done so we are very thankful for your patience. Thank you ever so much for being there.
MyGame Sequences is the third application of “MyGame” family. In “MyGame” apps we intend to create cognitive stimulation game generators, so you can create and play these activities but always adapting them to the end user. This application allows you to create sequences of actions, very much like the ones needed to teach children within the Austistic Spectrum. You can also play and to sort them out, thus, learning their order.
This application makes possible to create sequences ranging from 2 to 7 images and to enrich them with text and audio. The app also offers the possibility to set hints in the game and to limit play time. Finally, it also allows some basic gamification by grouping games in complex sets if dessired. It is available in Spanish, English, German, French, Italian and Galician.
To remove a sequence you have to do it from an Android file explorer, removing the adequate folder inside the game folder “MyGameSequences”.
We’ve uploaded this new app MyGame Sequences to Google Play and our web:
PictoTalk is an instant messaging application based on pictograms. It allows communication by using Picts (signs that schematically represent a symbol, real object or figure) as well as text. So far our communication boards needed the presence of the person you wanted to communicate with, so he/she could hear the message. Thanks to PictoTalk we take a step further! By sending the pictograms using Internet, this application allows a person to communicate, using an Android phone or tablet, with anyone in the world by means of pictograms. It is available in Spanish, English, German, French and Italian.
For communication, it is necessary to choose our own user name, and add the person we want to communicate with by using their username. From that moment them both can communicate using Picts or text. The application allows to listen to the Picts and texts, both sent as well as received.
PictoTalk is highly configurable. For the selection of the Picts used to communicate it uses PictoDroid Lite v3.0, so it is very easy to modify the board: adding, deleting, changing, renaming… Picts. It is also possible to configure it to use other Picts and even real images.
PictoTalk does not encrypt messages, so it is advisable not to send sensible data such as passwords and credit card numbers.
In PictoTalk there cannot be two users with the same name, if you try to pick a name that is already selected, it is not permitted. If you need to delete an account, please contact us via email.
You can try PictoTalk by adding the “accegalresponde” account. This account will not answer questions, just simply answer random pictograms and text as an example and it will disappear in a few days.
PictoTalk may not work in some corporate WiFi networks (companies, administrations, universities, etc.). For security reasons these networks do not allow access to certain Internet addresses, due to this PictoTalk will not work on these networks despite not being a harmful application. Try using the application with your mobile data connection or with another WiFi.

MyGame WordSearch is the second application of “MyGame” family. In this family we intend to create cognitive game generators, so you can create and play these games but always adapting them to the end user. This application allows creating and playing word searchs, the clasic game of finding words in a grid with letters.
This application makes possible to create games with the words you want, and place them horizontal, vertical, diagonal and even backwards. You can choose the grid size from 4×4 to 12×12 and if you want hints in the game (words to search, pictures, audio or descriptions associated, or mark the first letter). Finally, it also allows you to create sets of grouped games or individual games. It is available in Spanish, English, German, French, Italian and Galician.

MyGame Memory is the first application of “MyGame” family. In this new family we intend to create cognitive game generators, so you can create and play these games but always adapting them to the end user. This first application allows creating and playing memorys, the clasic game of raising cards and finding two alike.
This application makes possible to create games matching same images, same sounds, same texts, associated images, image with sound (using audio files or voice synthesizer), image with text and text with sound. You can set the number of pairs from 2 to 15, a maximum time to finish the game or the possibility of a configurable number of hints. Finally, it also allows you to create sets of grouped games or individual games. It is available in Spanish, English, German, French, Italian and Galician.
The application uses, as an example, the Picts of ARASAAC (http://arasaac.org/), created by Sergio Palao and distributed with Creative Commons license (BY-NC-SA).

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the State Reference Center for Personal Autonomy and Technical Aids (CEAPAT) invited us to participate in the Technical Meeting during their Open Doors Week 2014. In this meeting we had the opportunity to tell about Accegal project, what projects are underway, future projects, etc. and, especially, to introduce our new application PictoDroid MED based on the Notebook of Support for Patient Communication created by the CEAPAT.
You can see our presentation in the video below (in Spanish):
Accegal es un proyecto de colaboración entre el Centro de Educación Especial Manuel López Navalón y el Grupo de Tecnologías de la Información de la Escuela de Ingeniería de Telecomunicación (Universidad de Vigo) para la elaboración de soluciones de accesibilidad basadas en dispositivos móviles.
