Everyone deserves the gift of gab! But some disabilities, such as cerebral palsy, stroke, and autism, make verbal communication almost impossible. With Gabby, there is finally an affordable, yet powerful program to help you find your voice. Using images associated to text and/or audio combined with an easy to use and configurable interface, allows people with all ranges of disabilities to communicate much easier.

Key features:

▪ Easily create and modify your own vocabulary.
▪ Use the built-in text-to-speech (TTS), or record your own voice.
▪ Administration mode so normal users can't modify or change anything.
▪ Multiple users with passwords (all vocabulary and organization private to each user).
▪ Temporarily hide vocabulary from view (until unhidden).
▪ Organize your vocabulary into any combination of folders or tags.
▪ Access vocabulary by folder, or view (most recent, most used, GPS location, etc).
▪ Quick Access Panel to keep vocabulary used often always available.
▪ Text mode: Gabby can read back anything you type.
▪ Sentence mode: Combine multiple vocabulary to form a sentence and play it back.
▪ Immediate mode: Click on an image and have the phrase or phonetic phrase spoken by TTS or your own audio played back.
▪ Built in web browser to provide easy access to images on the web.
▪ Image capture from camera, photo album, or web browser.
▪ Basic image editing (flip horizontal/vertical, crop, zoom, pan) without leaving the application.
▪ Send text/e-mail message while in sentence or text mode.
▪ Each vocabulary item has an image, phrase, phonetic phrase, tags, and comments.
▪ GPS Location, usage count, date, and time are all captured as each vocabulary item is used.
▪ Advanced search capability to find your vocabulary quickly.

Ratings and Reviews

This has got to be one of the most versatile apps for people unable to speak!!

Sea S Ta

We started using this app a short time after it was released. We loved it then and after using it for a few months we love it even more. The updates keep making it better and better- there's so much on this app. We love the ability to change pics to our own as well as recording our own voice. We're even able to place a folder in a folder along side other words in that folder and from that folder break out to vocabulary options. ~ and the option to tag an item allowing it to be shared in several folders. The list goes on - gps of location used- usage- ability to form sentences & seeing the spoken word in text. If I were to develop an app to enable my son to communicate it would be just like this. 5☆ - thanks!

Gave my son a voice!

This app has changed everything for my son! He looks for the iPad to communicate with me!!! This app is so easy to use and modify for my son's needs! He finally has a voice after 16 years. I would have paid a hundred times more for it! Thank you so much Enabled Software!!!



You have the option of editing the speed and pitch of the 3 voices. However, all voices are the same. I expected a voice similar or better than the Gabby Lite and (which has a natural sounding female voice) I want my money back .........
