Check out our App of the Month

Wed 23rd Jul 2014 

Tap to Talk is a very easy to use and free app for communication. It allows users to express choices (yes, no, or I want) , feelings (I feel happy, sad, & etc.) and statements (we are going to eat, pray, love) through the use of simple touch screen icons.

The free version of the app comes with a very basic starter album of images and phrases and further free albums are available to download. There is also a paid app which will allow you access to further albums, languages and the ability to add your own images and sounds to customise your albums as required, but this comes with a hefty price tag of £149.

App of the Month, July 2014 - Tap To Talk

The images are clear and easy to use and you can turn the text on and off and the sound on and off depending on your preferences.

A great app for anyone with any non-verbal condition and is available for free download on iPad, Android tablets and Windows 8 as well as a web app that you can run on any computer with internet access.
