Sensory Speak Up is a visually stimulating simple game style app that responds to sounds.
Speak Up can be used to encourage children to vocalise and make sounds, either through the internal microphone or via and external microphone.
Designed to assist with speech therapy, the louder the voice sound, the bigger the shape or pattern becomes.
Different activities either give a gross display of the volume or a short trail of volumes.
The colours of the display can be set as well as the sound threshold for a visual response.

Sensory Speak Up
This app really works well when encouraging vocalisations - I have already tried it with a young 8 month old just to see his reaction - lots of smiles and more noises! As a Speech Therapist I feel sure there are many other ways this app can be used with the changes in colour settings to suit users and volume settings to encourage louder sounds. See how long you can hold a sound to keep the shape moving!
A good idea not well actualised
There are no instructions, which wouldn't be a problem if the app was intuitive. Found out the image wasn't moving because I had to pretty much shout in the mike for the image to move.
So, would be a lot better if it reacted more to sound. Would also be good if you had the choice to have it react to touching the screen.
Anyway deleted it as soon as I worked out how to use it as you have to yell loudly before it works
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
