JABtalk


JABtalk is a free speech communication application designed to help non-verbal children and adults communicate. Speech therapists commonly refer to JABtalk as an easy and effective augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device. By combining personalized voice and images with an extremely simple user interface, JABtalk delivers a speech solution that is both fun to use and easy to learn. Originally designed as a communication tool for children with special needs, JABtalk has evolved into a communication tool used by special needs children, stroke patients, toddlers, speech-language pathologists, and others.

Wow, finally!!!! Finally an app that works for my speech challenged son. We have been working with great speech therapists, but certain things just haven't clicked. Like personal pronouns. I used the feature to add audio and he listened once and copied it, a big grin on his face. Next day he used all correct pronouns. No joke! Excited at the possibilities of this app because of his newfound motivation to talk. Generalisations and flexibility of speech & sentence building for example :)

Love this! My son is non verbal 4 yr old with Autism and this is amazing to help him communicate with us! We can tailor it to his likes/needs and adjust accordingly. And whats even better is in the settings there is an option to disable the back button, brilliant for us as our son has learnt to exit apps using "back" amazing app.

Love it! The only issue I have is that I wish I could sync my tablet and phone without having to do everything twice. I think it will become an excellent tool for my daughter Thanks!
