Ratings and Reviews
I disagree with most of theses reviews. I have the full version for my son, and this lite version is such a handy tool to have in my back pocket! It doesn’t have speech output, no but it is still a very useful tool. I am able to customize the same way the full version is, just no speech output. That isn’t a problem for us because my son can still select the icons to communicate his needs. My sons iPad has broken several times, and having this as a back up communication tool is invaluable for my non-verbal son. I would give it ten stars if I could.
Waste of money
This app is completely nonfunctional. The speech therapist nor I saw the notation that there is no speech synthesis with the lite versions. We thought the vocabulary would be limited but that we could introduce my son to this version while waiting on the funding to process for the full version. Exactly what is the point of the lite versions? You can see the program in action online, so it befuddles me why the developer offers these versions.
Does not come with sound!
These are just example buttons that do not produce speech sounds. It’s what I’d expect to see for free, not pay $10 for. Waste of money. 😣
