ChoiceBoard Creator is the updated version of its predecessor ChoiceBoard Maker. It is the perfect app for creating customizable choice boards for the unique needs of individuals with communication challenges. It reinforces correct choice by expanding the selected image as well as playing the customized auditory rewards.
It is an excellent tool to train and prepare users for more sophisticated communication devices via an easy, simple-to-use choice-making platform. The possibilities are limited by your creativity.
ChoiceBoard Creator retains all the previous features PLUS several new updates. New features with this new version include:
•Large buttons, and black/white contrast to facilitate visual attention
•Box sizes are now adjustable for those who just need to see a little more clearly

•Space between choice buttons to avoid inadvertent hits
•Customizable to 1,2,3,4 or 6 choices
•Users can download their own pictures
•Users can create blank boxes as distractors to suit users of all levels
•Now users can preset multiple "correct answer" boxes, and download different sound files to each box – a feature that allows users to choose their favorite music with just a tap
•Other than image files, users can now type text into the choice box – use this feature to teach sight words, letter, number recognition
•Versatile application that can be used to create curriculum content to promote cognitive and literacy skills
•Ease of use. Intuitive interface allows user to set up activities in minutes
•Allows users to create multiple pages for each "game" or activity
