This application was financed by the Tourism Agency of the Xunta de Galicia in the call for the revitalization of Xacobeo 21-22 within the O Teu Xacobeo program.
PictoXacobeo is an Android application designed to facilitate the interaction of pilgrims on the Way of St James with communication needs (speech disorders, reading and writing comprehension, language difficulties, etc.). This technological solution of inclusion and social participation allows to select pictograms and create phrases, facilitating communication between pilgrims and the different communication profiles of the Way (restaurants/cafes, hostels, shops and churches) in the most common languages of the Way (Spanish, English, French, German, Italian and Portuguese).
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.
We’ve uploaded this new app PictoXacobeo to Google Play and our web:
Here you can have a look at several screenshots of the app.
