This application has been developed as a winner in the II Call for Grants for Accessible Technologies Projects thanks to the financing provided by Indra and Fundación Universia.
The talkAACtive application allows both young people and adults, with communication difficulties (such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, aphasia (agramatism), dysarthria, dyslalia, etc.), to practice and/or self-evaluate their speech and writing using pictograms, thanks to a natural language generation system of your own design, and easily adaptable to the required work environment. In addition, it has the ability to function as a pictographic communicator to facilitate the learning process (communication, writing practice and speaking practice) through a single application. It is available in Spanish and English.
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 talkAACtive to Google Play and our web:
We’ve also uploaded its user manual (in Spanish):
