Description

MetaTalkUS is the English language version of MetaTalk - the vocabulary and voices are in English only.

MetaTalk is a symbol-based application for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). It allows users without or with limited voice capabilities to communicate. MetaTalk is preconfigured with three rich vocabularies - you can start immediately. Individual customizations are easy and always possible. 

MetaTalk is based on METACOM symbols which are known for their clarity and professional design. A simple structure allows beginners - and relatives without special AAC training - to learn and grow over time.
