What we love…

Engaging and easy to navigate format. Unique, whimsical and visually appealing graphics and animations. Fun music and engrossing sound effects

What we’d love to see…

A setting which would allow for each sound to be played again as needed. For impulsive kids, it would be helpful to not allow the note to be dragged for matching until the sound has been played. As an SLP, I would love to see a data collection option to help track how a student is progressing in his/her auditory perception skills.

Summary

Overall Sound salad is an app of excellent quality that fosters listening and attention

Sound Salad - Help Mr. Ear by sorting sounds

Sound Salad by Funny Yummy Studios is an auditory perception app that requires players to match sounds to the correct object. Funny Yummy Studios is also the developer of the addictive “Catch the Wally” where you play hide ‘n seek with a spider in a brick wall and Funny Yummy, a delightful interactive story book for younger children. As with their other apps, Sound Salad has high-quality mixed-media graphics and animations which are unique and quirky.

There is a short video at the beginning explaining how all the sounds got mixed up. Your mission is to help Mr. Ear sort out all the sounds and return peace and harmony to the city. The engaging game format and imaginative animations will keep kids playing until they reach the next level.

Visual prompts are provided on the initial screen to show how to drag the musical note to the matching object. When a mistake is made, the page resets until the matches are made correctly. This builds memory and learning skills instead of just allowing kids to make random guesses to pass the level.

The easy setting allows for each sound to be played individually and then to immediately make a match. For a greater challenge, the advanced mode automatically plays all the sounds and then requires the matches to be made from memory. Neither setting allows for repetition of the sounds which may become a source of frustration for younger children.

Most of the matches are common objects such as animals, instruments, or vehicles, but some are less concrete. For instance, the sound of a lullaby is represented by a baby’s crib mobile. In addition, some of the most challenging matches include musical concepts portrayed visually. For example, a rhythm pattern may be represented by a rock formation or a pitch pattern by a diagonal graphic indicating rising pitch. While these may be tricky for younger users, these conceptual images help to build logic and inference skills.

There are 4 modes of play which allow you to set the number of objects to match from 2, 3, or 4 items. All of these levels can be played on either the easy (play sounds individually) or the advanced setting (match sounds from memory). You can also adjust the speed of game play by adding a time restriction to increase the challenge for older kids.

The game is available in 11 different languages. There are no in-app purchases or third party advertising. Recommended for ages 3-10.

 

 

In summary, Sound Salad is an outstanding and well-developed app which helps to develop listening skills in children of all ages. It is useful for promoting attentiveness and auditory memory as well as inference and logic skills. As a speech pathologist, this app will be very useful in therapy to help develop auditory perception skills. It could also be used to promote expressive language by having kids name and describe the objects pictured and the type of sound being produced. These are all skills necessary for educational success. My own 3-year old found the app to be funny and engaging. He loved the animations of the silly ear. He couldn’t put it down.

Total TalkTotal Talk is an excellent AAC app designed for easy and efficient communication by nonverbal users. The app was developed by Ellenson Integration Enterprises, Inc. A quick start guide makes it easy to begin using the app and the complete user manual provides a more thorough overview of the app.
The home page is organized with a message output area at the top, a dock or menu on the left side of the screen and the main grid with word buttons and folders (default is 6×6). The main grid gives access to several commonly used words (yes/no, I, you, want) and folders which are organized by category (i.e. people, verbs, activities, places, things, questions). Any words selected will appear in the message output box and can be verbalized by pressing on the box or the “speak” button in the dock.
The dock is accessible on the side of the screen. This menu has helpful buttons such as “home”, “speak”, “spell”, and “quick chat”. These features allow for more efficient communication and editing. For example, “quick chat” opens 14 commonly used phrases such as greetings, protesting, requesting, and commenting for fast selection. There are also “quick chat topics” which are organized into folders such as people, food, emotions, and questions.
One of the most unique features of the dock is the “magic” button. Selecting “magic” initially changes the menu to allow access to “settings”, “output”, “edit readout” and “quick chat topics”. The “magic” button also unleashes additional functionality to whatever button is pressed next. For example, pressing “magic” prior to a verb will offer a different grid with predicted phrases and conjugations of that verb. For “want”, the new grid options include pronoun buttons, “want”, “wants”, “wanted” and other conjugations such as present progressive, negatives, and past tense.
The “total talk” button allows access to the 10 different communication modes. These include EZ phrases, favorite lists, stories, jokes, and photos. EZ phrases include several folders with common categories or situations that many children encounter daily at school or home such as “homework”, “games” or “bedtime”. Under the “shopping” folder, there are several related phrases such as “I want to pick”, “How much?”, “I want everything!” and “No fair”. The app can be customized with personalized photos for sharing personal experiences. There is a nice step-by-step tutorial for adding photographs in the “make an album” folder.
I particularly like the “jokes” folder which allows the user to tell a pre-programmed joke. After choosing the joke set-up, the user can deliver the punchline complete with rim shot and laugh track. Once a new folder or screen is opened, there is the option to keep it open rather than closing automatically. By clicking on “stay open”, the current page will remain accessible thus eliminating the need to press several buttons to get back to the same screen. Therefore, a joke or story can be told without missing a beat.

iPad Screenshot 2
The “spell” button accesses the tablet’s keyboard so words can be typed out manually. Word prediction facilitates the typing process for increased efficiency of communication. This app truly grows with the user. When the user is ready, he can transition over to using the keyboard for output while still having access to the symbols.
As with most AAC apps, there are highly customizable settings for editing page lay-out, buttons, icons, and folders. The main page defaults to a 6×6 grid, but can be changed to a 9×7 or 5×4 grid depending on the user’s communication level or visual limitations. The icons are colorful drawings depicting the vocabulary concept on the button. The buttons are color coded by parts of speech (i.e. verbs are pink, nouns are yellow, etc).
As always, these folders and buttons can be easily edited according to the child’s needs and interests. Under settings, you can adjust the format of the screen (number of buttons per page from 20-63), size of text, color coding, and prediction settings.
Voices and persona icons can be edited. You can choose from male or female and then from child, teen or adult voices. In addition, pitch and rate of the voice can also be customized over 5 levels from very low and slow up to very high pitch and fast. There are currently only two persona icons offered: either a boy or girl in a wheelchair, but other options will be made available in future updates.

iPad Screenshot 1
One of aspects of verbal communication that is often lost when using a speech generating device is prosody or the intonation of speech. This app compensates for this by offering options to change the output such as “whisper”, “excited”, “bored”, or “weird”. So now the user can actually use a bored voice when asking “Are we done yet?” In addition, there is the option to stop the message output by gently hitting the device with an open palm or fist. This gives the user the ability to silence the device if the wrong message was selected in error.
Another unique feature is the ability to have two conversations at once. With the “side talk on”, the user can toggle back and forth between a conversation and a written report they may be working on. This flexibility will allow opportunities for the user to ask questions about an assignment while they are simultaneously working on it. It also lets them converse with two communication partners at once which is more like real life.
Another unique feature is the ability to minimize the grid to allow for writing notes, emails, or longer school papers or reports. These written compositions can then be saved to a button in order to print off later. This component would be a wonderful resource when completing homework or writing reports.
One of the most challenging obstacles of introducing a new AAC device to a child is becoming oriented with the location of all the buttons and teaching them how to use the device to communicate effectively. The innovative Tele-prompt feature makes this task a little less daunting. By downloading the free Orbit app, the teacher or parent can remotely access the user’s screen from their own iPhone or tablet. The teacher can offer suggestions in real-time by drawing on their device which is paired with the student’s. The prompts magically appear on the user’s screen much in the same way a coach would highlight plays for his team. This allows for unobtrusive hands-free prompting by allowing highlighting of buttons to make suggestions for word choice selection. What a great way to promote independence.
The Tele-text is another resourceful feature which allows messages to be sent directly to another phone or device. This is helpful when the environment is too noisy to hear the verbal output or to allow for more privacy for personal messages. Now communication can still occur without the background noise interfering.
The features of this app are very well thought out. The app provides meaningful organization for different language levels as well as multiple communication approaches for increased efficiency across different speaking situations and settings. The format is user-friendly and intuitive and the content is extremely easy to edit and customize. Combined with several unique and groundbreaking features, this AAC app is truly a remarkable way to give a voice to non-verbal users. I would highly recommend it particularly for use in a school setting.

What we love…

Intuitive, easy to navigate interface

Purposeful tutorial with practice mode and strategy tips

Cutting-edge predictive text

Ease of editing and adding content

Amazing wealth of resources to support the caregiver

What we’d love to see…

Perhaps they could expand the communication adventures tutorial to meet the needs of older, nonverbal students.

Otherwise, I am hard-pressed to recommend any improvements at this time. They’ve truly thought of everything.

Summary

AVAZ Pro has set the standard for what an AAC app should be.  From the indispensable tutorials and caregiver support, to the predictive text and analytics, AVAZ Pro is one of the most intuitive and innovative AAC apps I’ve seen to date.  I highly recommend this exceptional app to support the communication of those without a voice.

Our Rating

Avaz Pro - AAC App for Autism (Augmentative Picture Communication Software for Children with Special Needs)AVAZ Pro is an outstanding AAC app designed for children on the Autism spectrum and those with complex communication needs.  The app was developed in collaboration with 25 schools and 500 children to help those with autism achieve the most effective communication possible.

As with most AAC apps, there are highly customizable settings for editing page lay-out, vocabulary, icons, and folders.  The home page is your starting point.  You can select from 1 to 40 pictures to be shown on the screen per page depending on the child’s communication level or visual limitations.  There are 3 pre-set levels (1: 15 pics, 2: 24 pics, 3: 40 pics) to help customize the board to your child’s needs.  Symbolstix icons (similar to Board Maker) are used to illustrate the concept of each button.  The buttons are color coded by parts of speech (i.e. verbs are green).

The home page gives access to several commonly used words (yes/no, I, you, want) and folders which are organized by category (i.e. people, food, things, places, actions).  One folder has “quick” pre-set phrases while another has a set of topics including the child’s interests and hobbies. Access to a set of core words can be found on the menu to the right of the main button layout.  As always, these folders and buttons can be easily edited according to the child’s needs and interests. Under settings, you can adjust the format of the screen (number of buttons per page from 1-40), what is spoken (each word selected vs only the message box), size of pictures/text, zoom preferences, color coding, and prediction settings.

The format is user-friendly and intuitive.  There are over 15,000 vocabulary words with accompanying Symbolstix pictures. The app is one of the easiest to edit and customize that I have seen.  It has a Settings Wizard allowing you to enter personal information about the child which then configures the buttons to those preferences (name/age, current communication level, audio-vis or motor needs).  The ability to easily add and edit buttons is another big plus.  You can easily add photos of people and items in the child’s environment as well as search the web directly from the app for additional pictures.

When a button is selected, it zooms in and speaks the word and then shows up in the message box.  You can string together several words for more complex utterances.  When the message is complete, the entire utterance can be spoken aloud by tapping on the message box.  If a mistake is made, you can easily delete a single word at a time by tapping the delete button or erase the entire message box by double clicking it.

There are several voices to choose from and the rate of speech can be adjusted as well.  In addition, there are over 30 different accents/dialects to choose from including Spanish, French, Chinese, and Italian which speak the English words in those accents.

The search function is very valuable when wanting to explore vocabulary options or find a specific word.  You can also easily switch from picture buttons to keyboard by pressing the button to the left of the message box.  The predictive function on the keyboard is unparalleled.  Several word choices are presented as each letter is typed anticipating the word.  I love how it provides several different verb forms to help promote grammatically correct utterances.  For example, if I manually type in “eat”, the following verb forms are presented as options: eat, eating, eaten eats.

One of the most challenging obstacles of introducing a new AAC device to a child is becoming oriented with the location of all the buttons and teaching them how to use the device to communicate effectively.  It is often difficult enough for the Speech Pathologist to become familiar with and edit an AAC device, not to mention the caregivers and child who may have no previous experience with this format. This app makes this task a little less daunting.

One of the features that truly sets this app apart from other AAC apps is the Dashboard.  This feature provides strategies to help integrate the use of AAC into the child’s daily activities.  Under this tab, you will find activities to help practice conversations and learn strategies to help expand and develop your child’s communication abilities.  There are 10 scenarios provided in which to practice guided conversations which help you become acclimated to the location of word buttons.  For example, in the “Conversation about pain” section, you can practice formulating such statements as “My head hurts”, “I want water please”, and “Do you want help?”  The app takes you step-by-step through the path needed to select all the appropriate words.  Visual cues such as an arrow or wiggling button give prompts as needed.  You can even view a pull-down menu of the entire path needed to complete the utterance.  This practice mode is an ingenious and essential tool for orientation to the location of buttons in order to increase the ease and efficiency of communication.

In addition to practicing specific sentences, there is a tutorial for using strategies to help expand your child’s communication abilities via conversation practice.  It provides a scenario and then prompts the caregiver to choose the best statement from 2-3 choices to help move the conversation forward without overwhelming the child.  It prompts the communication partner to ask specific yes/no questions to eliminate options, use self-talk, and expand on the child’s utterances.  This tutorial guides caregivers through the appropriate conversation skills they should be using with their child to maximize the effectiveness of the AAC app.

You can even customize specific phrases you would like to practice and model under the “My sentences” tab.  If you wanted to practice the sentence “I want to go to Grandma’s house”, the tutorial simplifies the sentence to “I want go Grandma’s house” and then walks you through the steps, prompting as necessary, to locate each folder and button to complete the phrase.

There is an Analytics tab which keeps track of the child’s vocabulary development and word use.  You can view the most frequently used words as compared to the all words used. It also gives an estimate of the average length of sentences spoken (MLU) over a period of time which you can set the dates for.  This is an excellent resource for keeping track of your child’s communication development over time.

A wealth of information can be found under the Resources tab, where there are well over 120 tips provided to help increase the effectiveness of using the AAC device.  There are also internet links to web pages and research articles supporting the use of AAC.  An intro video to the app can be found under the help tab in this section.

Another unique feature is the ability to print vocabulary pages to be used as a book.  This would allow the option to laminate pages for use near water (bath, pool) without the threat of damaging the device. With a little pre-planning, there is no need to let any situation which may prohibit the use of electronic devices limit the child’s ability to communicate.

The most recent update to the app introduced the ability to access a teletherapy call with Avaz Live. The developers are clearly determined to make improvements for an even better experience using their app.  The amount of user support located on their website and within the app itself is impressive as well.  Besides videos explaining specific features, there are slide tutorials guiding you through picture vs keyboard mode, customization, and the settings.

path

This app truly grows with your child as there are 3 grades of core-words based vocabulary presented in a predictable and intuitive format.  The vocab is structured to promote increasingly complex exchanges beyond just requesting items.  While the caregiver tutorial fosters a scaffolding approach to expanding a child’s utterance.  The app also stimulates literacy development by using both symbols and words.  When the child is ready, he can transition over to using the keyboard for input all while keeping the picture option easily accessible.

AVAZ Pro has set the standard for what an AAC app should be.  From the indispensable tutorials and caregiver support, to the predictive text and analytics, AVAZ Pro is one of the most intuitive and innovative AAC apps I’ve seen to date.  I highly recommend this exceptional app to support the communication of those without a voice.

What we love…

Visual feedback is an extremely helpful tool to shape vowels and vocalic /r/. Excellent potential for use with students with hearing impairments, apraxia, or for accent reduction.

What we’d love to see…

The ability to record speech attempts auditorily to provide auditory feedback on playback in addition to the visual feedback.
The ability for the SLP or parents to judge productions as right, wrong, or approximate as well as data tracking for individual students. Less inconsistency in the vowel mapping.

Summary

This app would be very beneficial to use in speech therapy with students with apraxia or hearing impairments. With a bit more fine tuning, this will be a truly wonderful app. The potential application for use in speech therapy is considerable and may be worth the investment especially if you have some tricky /r/ sounds to remediate.

Our Rating

Vowel Viz ProVowelViz Pro is a unique speech app that provides visual feedback to help shape vowel sounds. The app was created by SmartPalate International, LLC.
The targeting of vowel sounds can be a difficult endeavor as there really is no precise way to instruct a student in tongue placement or shape of the vocal tract for correct production. The production of vowels and vocalic /r/ has always been heavily dependent on the self-awareness of auditory feedback, until now. This innovative app provides the visual feedback that can facilitate the production of these sounds through real-time response.

iPhone Screenshot 4Using the device’s microphone, it maps out the user’s vowel production onto a grid called the vowel quadrilateral. The vowel quadrilateral is a visual representation of the position of the tongue during the production of vowels. The grid is designed to show the tongue’s height (high or low) in relation to its position from front to back of the mouth. For example, the top left quadrant contains the high front vowels /i:/ and /I/, while the bottom right includes the low back vowel /a:/.

The main screen allows you to select either vowels or vocalic /r/ to practice. There is also the option to “get training” where you can enter your email to receive tips and tutorial videos. I highly recommend watching these videos to ensure success when utilizing this app.

After a target vowel is selected, an auditory model of the sound can be played by touching the speaker in the top left of the screen. A flashcard with a word containing the target vowel can also be shown at the bottom. The student attempts to match the target sound by getting the orange tracking ball to land within the highlighted oval area on the grid. The mapping of the vowel is done in real-time allowing for immediate feedback and reinforcement of tongue position.

VowelViz Pro also provides vocalic /r/ targets. Anyone who has ever tried to get a child to produce /r/ with the correct tongue placement and tension knows what a challenge it can be. The use of visual feedback to help shape the sound is invaluable. In this module, the target is an oval shape containing the “R”. The trick is to get the orange ball to fall in the oval which would indicate the correct retroflex position. Tongue prompts such as “pull tongue back”, “raise tongue”, or “curl tongue” can be shown on the screen for additional prompting.

At the top right of the screen, you can find more information about the app. There is a pull down menu with basic instructions and troubleshooting help, an explanation of the vowel quadrilateral and vowel formants, a chart of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and links to the developer’s website for support.

The settings tab allows you to adjust the following:

  • Live Vowel Tail Length and Input Sensitivity can be adjusted with a slider bar.
  • Show tongue prompts: on/off
  • Show flash cards: on/off
  • Themes: Default – Planets – Flowers – Spelling – Colors – Sports

The applications of this tool are numerous. This app would be very beneficial to use in speech therapy with students with apraxia or hearing impairments. It would also be effective for accent reduction in helping to fine tune their productions of vowels. Any child struggling to produce vocalic /r/ would likely benefit from the visual feedback provided.

I personally used this app to successfully elicit a vocalic /r/ from a student previously not stimulable for the sound. The visual feedback gave the student a target she could shoot for that auditory feedback alone couldn’t provide. She was able to make the necessary adjustments to hit the target on her own with very little prompting from me. The look of pride on her face when she saw that she had hit the target was priceless.

However, this app is not without its flaws. On attempts to produce the /i:/ sound, my voice was consistently mapped in the upper right quadrant rather than the upper left. I was only able to hit the target on this sound, by dropping the pitch of my voice significantly. But for the most part, I was able to land within the target oval on other sounds.

With a bit more fine tuning, this will be a truly wonderful app. The potential application for use in speech therapy is considerable and may be worth the investment especially if you have some tricky /r/ sounds to remediate.
