“Brilliant! The most comprehensive aphasia app I have ever seen!” Kit Clewley, SLT, Keep Communicating, North Wales
“Hugely impressive… It’s the first time I’ve seen a language therapy app that really makes use of the potential of the technology” Dr. Anna Caute, Division of Language and Communication Science, City University of London
“Cuespeak has become the ‘go to’ app in our team. The contents and design clearly show the developer understands aphasia therapy and what people with aphasia and their therapists want” Laorag Hunter, SLT, NHS Tayside, Scotland
“This is the best therapy tool I have ever used” Elizabeth McBarnet, SLT, Lismenary Speech and Language Clinic, N. Ireland.
Cuespeak is a professional rehabilitation tool for people with speech, language and cognitive difficulties after stroke or brain injury. Produced in the UK and now used in many NHS hospitals, Cuespeak contains over 10000 images, 4000 videos showing target words being spoken and broken down into syllables and sounds, and more than 25,000 spoken prompts.
Cuespeak is optimised for use with a Speech & Language Therapist, but can also be used independently. The app can be managed remotely from another location, with the clinician or other helper sending session updates via the internet, and the user sending back results.
Cuespeak moves beyond traditional 'picture naming' approaches towards a more dynamic 'question and facilitated answer' format which seeks better to emulate the processing demands of conversation. The 25,000+ spoken prompts include questions, spoken feedback on errors and 'closure cues' designed to elicit spoken production of target words and phrases.
Exercises from any of the eleven therapy modules can be highly customised to individual needs and combined into a complete bespoke therapy programme which will run automatically at the single press of a button. This enables people even with significant cognitive problems to carry out prolonged, intensive, independent practice to supplement their face-to-face therapy programme.
Spoken word retrieval and production
Sentence construction and production
Understanding spoken language
An advanced settings menu allows SLTs to tailor exercises for very specific linguistic needs. Target words can be selected according to number of phonemes (sounds), number of letters, number of syllables, first and last sounds, grammatical word class and thematic role. Results capture both accuracy and speed of responses and are displayed over time in graph form.
If you're working on the move, you can set Cuespeak to run many of its features without an internet connection.
This version of Cuespeak is primarily aimed at UK users, using British English throughout and with cultural references geared towards the UK. However, a filter is provided to remove UK-specific questions if desired.
