Assistive Apps presents Assistive Express, an affordable Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) Device, catered to people with difficulty in speech. The biggest challenge for such users when using AAC devices is the number of key strokes or hits required to construct any sentences, which can take up a significant amount of time to have a decent conversation with anyone. To overcome this challenge, Assistive Express is designed to be simple and efficient, allowing users to express their views and thoughts at the most express manner, with natural sounding voices.

-Adaptive learning of new vocabulary into the word prediction list
- Favorites list for users to save commonly used sentences

Better than most options!

The app is pretty good, i like the voice quality and the options. Needs to support iOS built-in predictive text though!

Please update again

I am tired of seeing the same words that I recently used and I would like to delete all my recently stored words

Thank you

Best AAC program for adults without voice.

I lost my voice to cancer 4 years ago. Communicating with steno pad and pen was frustrating, ESP with my bad handwriting. As soon as iPad came out I got one and scoured the apps for an easy to use AAC program that would basically allow me text to speech. Of all the AAC programs I have tried assistive chat provides the best bang for the buck. The voices are not robotic, they are expressive and best of all they are loud. These are the loudest voices I have gotten in any app. They are not drowned out by normal background noise. The word prediction is very good. That and able to store favorites makes this the full meal deal. I have paid much more for several programs and have not been nearly as satisfied. My wish list is for more voice options and maybe some quick hit buttons. I recommend this for any one who needs a voice.
