PictoDroid Lite is an application for Android devices that allows users to communicate through the use of pictograms or Picts (signs that represent schematically a symbol, a real object or a figure). This Lite version only allows to express very specific actions in the punctual mode, creating sentences starting with:
- let’s go to…
- I want to play…
- I want to go to the bathroom…
- I want to drink…
- I want to eat….
- I am…
Upon the selection of each Pict, the system proceeds to read the pict selected.
In accumulative mode, it allows the creation of simple sentences, by the selection of subjects, verbs, objects, adverbs and adjectives. Upon the completion of the whole sentence created by picts, the system reads the complete sentence.
All Picts may be modified or deleted and you may add as many as needed. The process is explained in the application manual available in www.accegal.org. If you have questions or difficulty in setting PictoDroid Lite you can contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to help you.
PictoDroid Lite is available to Android Market or directly from our webpage:
The user’s guide is available in english [Download User’s Guide (PDF)].
We recommend reading the blog Faticreando from our advanced user Fátima Mikel where she tells her experience with PictoDroid Lite and how to configure it in the next pages (in Spanish): La tecnorevolución, Personalizando el habla electrónica y Configurando PictoDroid el habla electronica, segundo asalto.
The application uses the Picts of ARASAAC (http://arasaac.org/), created by Sergio Palao and distributed with Creative Commons license (BY-NC-SA), but you can configure it to use other Picts and even real images.
