The Fat Finger
By Data by Design LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Designed by a Speech Language Pathologist, “The Fat Finger" app is a text to speech program that is intended to be used by both children and adults that have difficulty accurately selecting letters from a keyboard.
The user of this app will touch the keyboard in the area of the intended letter or number. A separate screen will then open up with six larger letters or numbers from that area. This larger screen will allow the user to accurately view, select, and/or hear their desired letter or number. After a selection is made the program automatically returns to the main keyboard for further entry.
The goal of this app is to provide a clean, fun, and easy to use interface with clear and easy to understand voices. Individuals with visual problems or fine motor difficulties will benefit most from this product.
*This app includes (3) free in-apps from the "my care share" family of apps, for limited time use.

-Option to turn on/off "Fat Finger" feature

My Care Share Summary:
“This app was designed to assist those who have difficulty typing into a text to speech program. The user would just simply select a photo from the left column and a clear voice would then read your phrase aloud. You can download your own photos, and create your own phrases, or choose from the many photos and phrases pre-installed for you. You can sort the phrases in the order that you feel better fits your needs.
Let's suppose you wanted to let your caregiver know that you needed to take your pain medication. You would just simply select the photo of the prescription bottle and the phrase would be read to those intended to hear. No longer do you have to be frustrated with your inability to speak your thoughts, just simply click a photo and help is on the way.
Young children, adults, those with disabilities, and visual impairment will benefit the most from this application. Start improving the quality of life of your loved ones now!”
