Scene & Heard is an award winning augmentative communication aid. Use visual scenes for context based communication or create new learning aids with interactive features. Whether you are a parent, therapist or carer, the easy-to-use interface will help you import photos and allocate actions to any scene. Personalise each scene with fun and interactive options including audio messages, video clips and Widgit symbols. Use scene links to transition to a new scene and tell a story within the app. The application can be used as a multi-scene dynamic system. For example, a person using AAC can use a scene to share their experiences, such as a trip to the dentist, a visit to the museum or playing in the park.
With Scene & Heard Lite - basic version - you have the possibility to view and play one pre-created communication book, have access to 3 factory visual display scenes and 1 task prompting example. You can also try out switch access and touch anywhere access for people with motor difficulties.
Scene & Heard Lite can be used as a simple overview of the premium version of the app, offering an entry level for AAC users, or for teaching the importance of cause and effect.
