Ratings and Reviews
I love that Verbally gives me a voice that is understood by others. My challenge is easily having it with me. So far Mimi IPad works.
Good AAC App
Hi, this is a great AAC App for people who are literate. Has lots of nice options - including three different keyboard layouts and a very clear design. It is better than many other apps available for this area - and free as well is just a bonus. Thanks
This app is great for people needing assistance with speech. It has very good word prediction, ready made phrases and words and the keyboard is large and easy to use. the only negative is the voices which are a bit robotic and soft. Improve the voices please and it will be a 10/10!
The new version addresses the voices. Thanks for adding three new voices they are great. Also the ability to save phrases is very helpful. Thanks!
