Best Free AAC App You'll Find Anywhere!

This app comes with preloaded pictures, boards and sayings that are fairly generic and not PCS, however you can edit, link, record, and it's completely customizable. You can put a picture you take with your camera as a button, and record your voice to say what you want when it's pushed, and link that button to a separate page such as "I want" > "movies"> "Tangled." My son prefers this app over TouchChat currently because the borders are wider between buttons which makes them easier to see. Play with this first before you decide on paying for TouchChat, Alexicomm or LAMP! I've done 3 out of 4 and SoundingBoard is still top pick.

Poor design

Bad UI and terrible UX for those creating boards. Don't get me started on using photos on the app. I have over 20k photos and it wants to download all photos In order to use it. Does not use google photos or Dropbox folders ... annoying.

Very pleased!

I downloaded this app to use with a 10 year old speech student of mine who is very unintelligible. We had looked into purchasing a very expensive augmentative communication device, and decided to explore other options. Another "free" version of a communication app (TapToTalk) was extremely limited. Then, when reading the reviews for TapToTalk, I noticed a user's suggestion to try SoundingBoard. I had to give it a try. I've only had the app since yesterday, and I've already made several boards specifically tailored to my student. He LOVES it! Pages are simple to make, and the ability to link buttons to other pages indefinitely is SUCH a plus. This free app does as much as I needed the very expensive aug comm device to do!! If I don't see any glitches as time goes on, I will be entirely thrilled! Thanks for making this free.
