Through head tracking or touch, Vocable gives a voice to all. Users have the ability to create a customized library of words, phrases and categories for every day use, or use the power of AI to assist with active conversation.
Devices that do not support head tracking will only work with touch. See a list of compatible devices on our website (www.vocable.app).
Note: Every patient's needs and movement abilities are different. This app is a communication tool. please consult a physician before use.
Vocable’s new Smart Assist feature will give the user more response options while using Listening Mode. Smart Assist is powered by an Azure based GPT engine. This particular GPT engine will return options based off of generative natural language models but will not store any interactions and responses given by the user.
Ratings and Reviews
Everything about it is perfect. Although…
I love the app! I am a neurodivergent teen who’s been searching for a simple AAC application. I personally do not like the pictures on word tiles in different applications, so I like that it’s Just text. You can easily make your own word tiles and put it in different categories. You can make your own categories as well.
Everything about it is great, but I do have some suggestions.
The application gives you the option to manually type out your sentences, which is an awesome feature, however by default the keyboard is in alphabetical order, and not the usual QWERTY keyboard format. I think this should be a toggle feature, where users can choose between those keyboard formats. Some users can be used to the QWERTY keyboard format, and find it hard to communicate with the keyboard efficiently.
I also recommend adding a feature to be able to choose a different voice, and/or choosing the app theme. Some individuals might be sensitive to different visuals.
I also think the head movement feature should also be off by default, and can be enabled in settings.
Other than that, I will continue to use this app, as it’s (in my opinion) the simplest AAC app in the app store!

Hello! I Have Used Vocable For About 2-3 Months. I Have 2 Recommendations That I Think Could Improve The Overall Function Of This App. Recommendation One, Keyboard Options. I Understand That The Keyboard Used In This App Is Mainly Targeted For Both Younger Audiences And People Who Find It More Difficult To Read And Spell. I Think It Should Be Made Possible To Toggle To A Users Phone Used Keyboard To Make The App More Inclusive. As A Neurodivergent Teen And On The Older Side Of Your Audience, I Find The Apps Current Keyboard Very Difficult To Use. Other Reviewers Of My Age Range Also Have Mentioned How Frustrating The Keyboard Is To Use Due To How Slow It Is. I’m Not Saying Remove The Original Keyboard Entirely, I Am Simply Saying To Make It Possible To Use My Current Phone Keyboard As Well. My Last Recommendation Would Be The Ability To Re-Order Your Set Phrases, That Way You Can Order The Most Used Phrases To Be At The Top Of The List In A Category While The Least Used Phrases Can Be Moved To The End Of The List. This Is All I Wanted To Touch On, I Really Hope You Take My Review Into Consideration.
Best free option
I've tried to find software for when I go nonverbal, but it's so hard to get something accessible when everything has fees. This is the only app I can find that's completely free, which I really appreciate.
- Suggestive words as typing so you don't have to type full words
- Options to save phrases that are used often
- Categories for phrases based on needs
- Easy to navigate
- No qwerty keyboard, makes it difficult to type quickly if needed. The only efficient way to use is with saved phrases
- No options to change the automated voice
- No options to change the order of saved phrases to organize
- App colors are very bright and can give me a headache
Overall I'm really happy with this app. It's the only accessible one to me because it's free. It doesn't have all the good features that the expensive ones have, but it gets the job done.
