iSpeak Button is a single message talker. It is an affordable single communication button.
You can record your own personal message, and play it back with the touch of a button. This is perfect for beginning communicators, and people who require a large button surface.
You can record over your message as many times as you need.
You can add custom text to your button. You can rotate the button from the settings instead of on-the-fly to prevent screen-flip stimming.
Button comes in twelve different color choices. The color can be changed from the settings.
Need to speak sequences? Search for "iSpeak Sequences", a single switch that says up to 10 phrases you record.
Need a grid of buttons? Search for "iSpeak Grid" for up to 16 buttons per screen.
Need a full AAC app? "iVocalize" is a great communication app with loads of features for under $10.
How to use iSpeak Button:
To configure your iSpeak Button, hit the little (i) symbol in the bottom right corner of your device.
From here you can enter your text, choose your button color, and enable rotation.
To record a message, hit the "Start Recording" button. The circle to the right of the button will spin, this is how you know it is recording. When you are done with your message simply tap the "Stop Recording" button.
Be sure your device is capable of recording sound! iPad and iPad2 have built in microphones. All iPhones have microphones. iPod touches 2nd-3rd generation need you to plug in a mic, and 4th has a built in mic.

Ratings and Reviews
Incompatible with Bluetooth
I really like this app. I have cerebral palsy, which affects my speech. I can converse with people who know me and rarely use AAC, and if I do use it, I use a higher tech age than this. The only thing is i ride horses and can't cluck to them to get them to walk or encourage them to keep going. This seemed like the perfect app to solve that problem. I had someone recorded themselves clucking and then I'd hit the button when I wanted to cluck. I love the big button since it doesn't require much fine motor to hint it. The only problem is it isn't load enough and won't connect to my Bluetooth speaker. At first I thought the speaker was dying or something, but then I tested it on YouTube, Netflix and some other apps that make noice and they all came through the speaker. If you could fix that problem, the app would be perfect!
