Have something to say? Say it and let your voice be heard. AAC Text to speech puts speech in the palms of your hands. Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices are designed to improve the communication abilities for individuals with speech and language impairments.
"I am a speech-language pathologist. I have students with a wide variety of disabilities. [One of my students] has been texting on her iPhone and we a really had some difficulty convincing her to use a text to voice app. However once she started it was so user friendly she just took off with it!"
"I am blind and use the Voiceover screenreader and a Braille display...I have a friend who is deaf, and we usually communicate through texting and instant messaging. If we were to meet in person I think that this would be a very ideal app for us to use to communicate since we'd be typing back and forth to each other in real time on the same device, and we'd each be able to read in real time what the other is writing. Great job on making the app accessible with VoiceOver."
"You have created an absolutely indispensable app for individuals with speech and language impairments."

Ratings and Reviews
I have tried all the free ones. They either have a limited number of phrases that you can save until you have to pay or they do not save the phrases at all.
This app has unlimited saves, text, and good voices - all for free!!!
I'm completely nonverbal. I've been using this app for a year. It's become my voice, almost a part of my body. The speech synthesis isn't perfect but it's the best free AAC I've found.
