Our best version of Avatalker so far! New symbols and vocabulary! New Grammar Aids! Smoother operation! We hope you'll find Avatalker to be the best AAC product around.
Tap an image and your thoughts come alive with speech! Wants and Needs selection. Phrase building. You name it! Avatalker AAC is the easiest, most powerful communication app for the nonverbal on the market today.
As a full-featured augmentative and alternative communication solution designed for the iOS platform (iPad and iPad Mini), Avatalker AAC gives nonverbal children and adolescents the ability to quickly communicate wants and needs, or build phrases and sentences pictographically, which are converted to clear, audible speech. It features a 2,000 word vocabulary and the Aurora symbol set library that is easy to navigate and fun to use!
Two Skill Stages for a wide range of ability!
Stage 1 is for lower functioning users who are capable of making simple selections on a touch screen for every day wants and needs. Fully customizable, Stage 1 can use your own photos and phrases. Buttons may be made bigger or rearranged as needed.
Stage 2 is a full-featured, robust AAC communication solution! Easily customizable and scalable to a user's specific needs, It features unprecedented ease of navigation and grammar tools that make any sentence or phrase easy and fast to build! Visit aurorasymbols.com for a demo!
Navigation made simple:
In Avatalker® AAC, the categories are visible at all times, with their contents appearing in a horizontal window at the bottom of the screen. No more nested folders-within-folders or forgetting where things are located! Finding and selecting words is a breeze with Avatalker® AAC! All content is horizontally-scrolled, as opposed to vertical. This is easier for the eye to track peripherally and the brain's visual cortex to process. Your child will breeze through Avatalker's categories to the words they need in no time! Avatalker's categories even learn your child's favorite words and present them FIRST!
High Quality Voice Engine:
Avatalker AAC® features high quality, natural-sounding voices from Neospeech. Each voice may be adjusted by speed and pitch to your child's preference.

What Parents and Caregivers are saying:
Jennifer S.– IL (5yrs)
"Beautifully designed. Very intuitive. Keeps kids engaged. I love the endless options of nouns, verbs, adjectives. Any sentence seems possible. Can be used by a beginner, an advanced user or wide variety of ages. Very versatile; worth the money. I and our speech therapist very impressed with its simplicity of use but complexity of options and possibilities. Amazing app!!"
Lisa K.– IL (7yrs)
"The customizing helped; made it very easy for her to request. I used it with a few other children (Stage 2); they navigated very well. When sentence building was clear to them they seemed to enjoy being able to express themselves. This by far the best app available and better than another device I have seen or used."
Susan S.– CA (14yrs)
"My son has taken a lot of interest in this app. He chooses to use it as much as some of his game apps. With time he will be able to communicate much more effectively with this app. His school IEP will be soon, it will be added as a goal and used in his speech therapy sessions. This app will be an essential device used in the field of SLPs in the near future."
Victoria W.– NM (11 yrs)
“My grandson is getting auditory processing therapy but we could never get an accurate test on the hearing ranges he could not tolerate. We set up 2 buttons on Stage 1: “That sound is ok” and “Oh no! That’s too loud!” We are proud and pleased to report that he completed the ENTIRE screening, and answered every question by touching the buttons then reading them! We are SOOO excited! Thank you Avatalker and Aurora Symbols!”
Avatalker AAC version 2.2 includes an expanded symbol and vocabulary library, as well as new grammar aids, such as a prepositions menu and comparative forms for adjectives. Some bug fixes have ensured smoother operation for grammar aid menus.
