Assistive Apps presents Assistive Express, an affordable Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) Device, catered to people with difficulty in speech.

Ratings and Reviews

One step forward two steps back

AAC specialist provider

We were a bit disappointed with the upgrades. The nice simple interface with the large speaker is gone (this was it's main edge over the competition). It now has a layout similiar to Speakit (which is a fraction of the cost). The menu buttons can not be made larger for those with mild motor impairments. They haven't added the ability to increase the font size of typed text. No categories...
Oh well at least you can use speak selection within the app to get the better IOS voice. Oh and dIfferent colours on the favourites is a nice touch.

I expected more.


I have found very similar apps for free. Am disappointed as I thought this would have more to it, it looks low budget too. The phrases button needs to be more identifiable IMO, sn kids do not notice it.

Excellent handy app!
