InnerVoice promotes best teaching practices for those who have challenges with verbal communication -- at a fraction of the cost you'd expect from a typical AAC app.
InnerVoice can help teach speech, language, and social communication skills to people with autism -- or just about anyone else! -- using a combination of science and fun.
For those who need a voice, InnerVoice can work like a typical AAC device: letting your thoughts and feelings be heard and understood by others.
An easy user interface and a brief tutorial will make getting started with InnerVoice a breeze.
InnerVoice can function as a video-modeling social communication coach, an engaging multi-cultural language and literacy learning tool, a powerful communication app, or an entertaining and interactive toy that creates a unique social-learning experience.

Type a word: watch your pictures, line drawings, or toys come to life, as they speak in a happy, sad, or angry tone of voice.
Hear and see your photo avatar speak in English or Spanish -- helping you see and hear the relationships among pictures, symbols, speech, and writing.
SAVE YOUR WORK -- Backup and restore will ensure that all individual customizations are safe from accidental deletions or crashes.
EXPRESS -- InnerVoice allows you to make facial expressions on your avatar's face: take a photo, and watch yourself express happiness, sadness, or anger.
SPEAK -- see your words appear in the speech bubble: touch the avatar’s mouth or the speech bubble and listen to the avatar say your words aloud in English or Spanish.
HANDWRITE -- download MyScript Stylus keyboard, handwrite your message, and watch your writing appear as text in the speech bubble: touch the avatar’s mouth or the speech bubble, and listen to the avatar say your message.
PHOTOGRAPH -- take a picture and use the simple button-editing system to add a pre-recorded or text-to-speech label: touch the avatar’s mouth or the buttons; then watch and listen to the avatar label your pictures aloud.
SYMBOLIZE -- use the SmartySymbols and the simple button-editing system to add a pre-recorded or text-to-speech label to your favorite symbols: touch the avatar’s mouth or the buttons; then watch and listen to the avatar label your pictures aloud.
PROMPT -- use InnerVoice’s Remote Prompting feature, which allows someone to send video-modeled prompts via Bluetooth: watch the avatar spontaneously give cues, as if your mirror reflection were speaking to you! (Stay tuned for Remote Prompting ideas on our website!)
LEARN -- InnerVoice will immerse you into a total communication environment where you can learn language through pictures, symbols, writing, or speech: whatever medium allows you to share your thoughts, feelings, wants, and needs.
CUSTOMIZE -- InnerVoice's avatars are customizable making InnerVoice almost perfect for every age, ability, and ethnicity. Use any picture, person, character, object or icon to create a unique avatar to deliver your message. Adjust the eyes and mouth to create lifelike movements and speech, or add a cartoon mouth when the perfect picture is tricky to get...or just for fun!
