Assistive Apps presents Assistive Express, an affordable Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) Device, catered to people with difficulty in speech. The biggest challenge for such users when using AAC devices is the number of key strokes or hits required to construct any sentences, which can take up a significant amount of time to have a decent conversation with anyone. To overcome this challenge, Assistive Express is designed to be simple and efficient, allowing users to express their views and thoughts at the most express manner, with natural sounding voices.
-Landscape and Portrait Modes to cater to different needs
-Word Prediction to minimize the keystrokes required
-Adaptive learning of new vocabulary into the word prediction list
- Favorites list for users to save commonly used sentences
-3 voices included for user to pick
-Adjustable volume and speed for voices
-Large font and buttons for easy access
-Recent list for quick access to previously spoken sentences
-Self-learning "next word" prediction

Ratings and Reviews
Better than most options!
The app is pretty good, i like the voice quality and the options. Needs to support iOS built-in predictive text though!
Please bring back the old layout.
My younger brother with autism has been using this app for years. It has served him well, but we prefer the layout that was used in previous versions of this app. The very large speakerphone button (that was more than twice the size of the other buttons) definitely made it easier for him to use this app. The old layout was already very clean--I do not understand why it had to be changed. Also, it is nearly impossible to contact the makers of this app. There's no contact email to be found. Why is communication so difficult?
Please update again
I am tired of seeing the same words that I recently used and I would like to delete all my recently stored words
