Speech Sounds on Cue for iPad (US English)
Reviewed by Suzanne
Speech Sounds on Cue for iPad was designed by a Australian Speech Pathologist at Multimedia Speech Pathology to help her clients with severe speech difficulties to practice independently  It follows the “Integral Stimulation” method of Apraxia treatment – “Listen, watch and Imitate” but adds automatic recording and playback. It contains 550 videos to teach the production of 20 consonants and words arranged by initial sound.

The opening screen shows consonant sounds and three different activities. The basic activity allows for one sound choice.  It begins with a video demonstrating a mouth making the sound and verbal directions on how to form the sound. The next screen presents a picture and auditory cue of a phrase followed by the target word and as the word is produced the video of the mouth saying the word plays. Immediately following the phrase is presented with the video of the word being mouthed with no sound. Finally the phrase is presented and the microphone is turned on for the student to record the word. The student may: re-record, playback, repeat the exercise, or move on to the next word.  If you press select word in the upper right hand corner you can present a specific word by selecting it.  The random activity allows for the choice of more than one sound which is great for students working on a specific class of sounds or errored versus targeted sound (I have a student who has learned the k sound in speech previous years but since I have had him this year the t sound is also k so we work on both sounds with the target words mixed together). The rest of the activity is the same as the basic activity.

The rhyming activity has 13 pages. Each page has 4 words that rhyme. When  you touch the picture the word is said. Again you can select which page to go to.

I like that this app has a phrase/sentence activity. I like that the video shows how to produce  the sound/word to provide the student with a model other than yourself or the students in the class. It is nice to be able to record more than once before moving to the next word. The ability to select a specific word without having to complete all the words before it is also a nice feature.

 

I would like to see data collection added. I would like to be able to turn off the phrase/ sentence and just present the word for those students who insist on saying the whole thing when they are struggling at the word level even though you request over and over to just say the word.

 

Overall, a great app that targets phrases and sentences; provides video and auditory presentations and allows for recording of student production. I have given it four stars and would increase this rating with a few minor additions!

A free lite version of the app is available, and US & Australian English versions available.

What we love…

Excellent graphics and animations, abundance of phonemes in different positions and length, customizable, recording of students voice, multiple different settings

What we’d love to see…

Voice accompaniment upon presentation of image, rewards following correct productions, ability to choose syllable length, female voice

Summary

Excellent app for both SLPs and parents. Games are engaging and allow for a lot of practice. I played this app with many of the children on my caseload and each one asked for it in their next session.

Our Rating

Articulation VacationArticulation Vacation by Virtual Speech Center is an engaging app to encourage carryover of articulation therapy. It can be used on both iPad and iPhone. Virtual Speech Center is a developer that offers multiple apps for a range of speech and language domains including Auditory Memory Ride, Articulation Carnival , Social Norms, Magical Concepts  and Apraxia Rainbow Bee which we have previously reviewed. Virtual Speech Center apps are applicable for reinforcing language skills, articulation skills and auditory processing. The developer is easily accessible and answers questions and concerns quickly.

Articulation Vacation was created to enhance articulation learning, the graphics and animations are both engaging and creative. The vacation theme allows the child to practice many skills in four different “vacation” activity modes: Fishing, Parachuting, Hidden Treasure and Picture Taking.

The app covers most, if not all, phonemes and blends that child might encounter in the English language. The opening page of the app is directed at set up and beginning the game. Like other Virtual Speech apps, at the start, a student must be chosen or added. Multiple students can be added and multiple students can play at a time with the app having them take turns. Once the desired student is added, then the customization begins. There is an option for position (initial middle, end) and for the desired output (word, phrase, and paragraph).

The app can be adjusted for desired phoneme that the child is practicing, so as their targets change over time you can adjust what they are working on. The settings allow for many options, such as text on and off, number of trials for each game before moving on to the next game, selecting multiple phonemes, and auto scoring. Child’s voice can be recorded and played back.

 Activities

Each activity has a different approach.

In the fishing game, the kids pull back the fishing rod and “fish” in the ocean for a target.

In the beach treasure hunt the child digs in the sand to uncover a picture representing their target word

During the parachute option, the children are directed to release the target word from a parachute and catch it on a floating raft.

In picture taking the objective is to take pictures of the target word, by moving a camera back and forth.  There is a red button next to the viewfinder that turns green once the target has been found. There are so many target words that the students can have multiple tries before words are repeated.

In all of the activities , in order to hear the word, the child must press an arrow located on the side of the picture. Each page allows for recording of the client’s voice and the ability to mark as correct, so-so and wrong. Scores are automatically recorded and can be easily tracked. In the settings options, scores can be erased or saved for the next sessions. Reports can be viewed in graphic or table section.

There are quite a few things that I really like about this app. The voice that accompanies the images is a pleasant, very articulate male voice. However, for many of the words, he adds a schwa or elongates the phoneme. For those children imitating him, they will add that extra phoneme. I would like to see the option of a female voice as well. The app is easy to manoeuvre and a very short learning curve. There is limited animation on each page, so the child is not distracted. The number of phonemes covered is exceptional. It allows the SLP to alter the target multiple times in each session. The student can easily “grow” with this app.

There are some additional options I would like to see added: target voiced as it comes on the screen, instead of having to touch an arrow, for the camera be able to move up and down, or perhaps be moved by moving the iPad, and ability to choose length of syllables for target sounds. Currently there is no reward system for the students, perhaps the developers can add a sticker system to the app after achieving a certain number of correct productions.

Articulation Vacation by Virtual Speech Center is an engaging app that can be used both in therapy and as a follow up for home reinforcement. The students I tried it with loved the games and the quick pace of the app. I would highly recommend this app for SLPs and for parents with therapist input.
