TouchChat HD Lite is a non-communicative configuration of TouchChat HD that allows for the user interface experience but DOES NOT include speech synthesis or any type of audio playback capabilities. TouchChat Lite DOES NOT include the ability to transfer page sets to other devices.
TouchChat provides both English and Spanish options in a universal app supporting iPhone®, iPod touch® and iPad®.
TouchChat HD Lite gives an individual the ability to navigate through page sets. Page sets are linked pages, each of which is divided into a number of buttons. The buttons are programmed to have specific actions. For example, buttons may be programmed to navigate to a different page, change the volume, clear the display, etc.
Page sets that are included with TouchChat Lite: VocabPC™, MultiChat15, my QuickChats©, MyCore, Spelling, Communication Journey: Aphasia, WordPower™, Pixon™60, Gateway©, Talk-About AAC, and various Spanish page sets. Each page set targets individuals with different communication needs.
The pages, grid layout, buttons, messages, and symbols are fully customizable. You can modify the provided page sets or create your own. Select from over 45 button actions and nearly 40,000 Symbolstix® symbols when customizing buttons. You can also use your own images or take photos with the built-in camera. Additionally, gestures can be used to navigate to new pages, etc.

Ratings and Reviews
Know what you are paying for
Though I would have preferred voice output, I knew what I was buying. The first sentence of the description says it is "non-communicative" and also says there is no speech synthesis. Perhaps the description was different when others bought it, but you need to be very careful when purchasing apps.
I disagree with most of theses reviews. I have the full version for my son, and this lite version is such a handy tool to have in my back pocket! It doesn’t have speech output, no but it is still a very useful tool. I am able to customize the same way the full version is, just no speech output. That isn’t a problem for us because my son can still select the icons to communicate his needs. My sons iPad has broken several times, and having this as a back up communication tool is invaluable for my non-verbal son. I would give it ten stars if I could.
Waste of money
This app is completely nonfunctional. The speech therapist nor I saw the notation that there is no speech synthesis with the lite versions. We thought the vocabulary would be limited but that we could introduce my son to this version while waiting on the funding to process for the full version. Exactly what is the point of the lite versions? You can see the program in action online, so it befuddles me why the developer offers these versions.
