Speakprose™ is a conversational AAC speech app that gives nonverbal users or people with verbal challenges the tools and self-confidence to engage in conversation, build meaningful relationships, and express their true selves. With an intuitive interface, users can tap or gesture to quickly access core words, express wants, needs, feelings, build sentences, ask questions, and more.
Users can also strengthen their social confidence and break through barriers to communication by practicing scripted conversations in the Speakprose Academy. In addition, users can personalize the app with custom phrases, and choose a voice that matches their own.
Caregivers, Parents, Family and Support Professionals can also download Speakprose on their own devices so that they can accelerate the emerging communicators development and growth by modeling conversation and speech with their own devices - back and forth with the learner.
Practice makes perfect and lots of attempts help increase comprehension and expression. To help guide learning and to track progress and results, Speakprose also offers a performance dashboard in the users’ profile to show how well they are doing, so that you can reward positive behaviors, effort, and accomplishments.
Speakprose was developed by Cognixion, in collaboration with SLP - Clinical Speech Language Pathologists, Linguists, ABA - Applied Behavior Analysts, Cognitive Neuroscientists, Psychologists, Special Education Teachers, Assistive Technology Experts, Parents and professional aids.

Ratings and Reviews
Super easy to create conversation
As a speech pathologist I have used a lot of different augmentative speech devises with both children and adults. The design of this app is super intuitive and the people that I've tried it with have been excited about how quickly they could use it to express themselves. Frustration is down. Smiles are up. It is best used by people who have some reading skills but the paired icons are familiar emojis and can be used by non-readers. The swipe or gesture to talk feature is great for people who have a hard time seeing, finding or tapping specific buttons. Love the decision to make this free app available to everyone.
I thought this was for learning and practicing ASL, I was apparently mistaken. Not a bad app, I just seem to not understand the use for it.
Can’t sign in
I downloaded this and when I try to start an account there is an icon that prevents me. A bar that has NEXT covers the dialogue area.
