Niki Talk

"Niki Talk is an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) application. It was originated from Alessandro La Rocca in collaboration with a therapist specialized in AAC and assistive technologies. Like many parents, frustrated about available solutions for AAC, he wanted to create an easy and versatile tool to allow his daughter Niki to communicate effectively. Now Niki Talk can help all the children with autism or any disability that impairs the ability to communicate. Niki Talk plays an album, that is a collection of pictures (including related text and speech) customized to meet the user preferences. Pictures can be organized by categories (verbs, foods, drinks, places, toys, movies, people, ...). User taps to indicate desired activities and construct the messages.

Niki Talk does not limit the number of pictures per category. If it exceeds the screen capabilities, pictures are displayed on more pages (swiping right or left to go forward or back). Furthermore Niki Talk includes some special functions like "keyboard" for allowing alphabetic communication, and "drawing" to replace temporarily missing symbols. You can choose to show or hide these features as well as other application preferences (show/hide velcro strips, mute sound, where to place the message bar and which buttons to display).

The application includes a demonstrative album with text and speech in english. To build your personal album try the Niki Talk Designer at www.nikitalk.com. The Designer allows to create pages, upload own pictures and transform text into speech (31 languages and 70 voices available)."
