Introducing Convey! An innovative AAC app that gives a ‘voice’ to people who have difficulty verbally communicating their wants, needs or emotions.
This application uses hundreds of different Mands (requests) which are identified as different everyday emotions, items, and places that the user can press to hear the name of the item, place or emotion spoken aloud. It also includes innovative features like Schedules and Contexts that adjust the set of icons / mands presented based on the time of day (breakfast, playtime, dinner, …), or location where you are at (i.e. home, school, restaurant, etc). Perfect for helping your child access the relevant requests for any given situation with minimal effort.
As part of the Convey launch, we would like to introduce Convey to help expand and enrich communication capabilities for all of our special children and are offering all users access to the Bronze subscription for Free.
The core application is Free (Bronze subscription) , and there is plenty of great functionality within it including:
- A suite of communication screens and Mands (requests) that plays audio specific to the place, person or thing selected.
- Ability to create up to 8 additional icons
- Create up to 4 SCHEDULES that creates a special view of icons based on the time of day (i.e. breakfast, lunch, playtime, dinner, etc).
- Create up to 4 CONTEXTS (locations), i.e. home, school, etc. where the set of icons can change based on selecting a location where you are at.
For even more functionality, check out the additional subscriptions below:

We downloaded this for our 4 year old son today and it was excellent. He caught on immediately and with the schedule feature, it's great to finally have something that can adjust the list of requests based on the time of day and activity. keep up the good work!
I used this app for the time today, it's awesome! Very self explanatory and easy to use. Also, so many choices that can be chosen.
