SpeakingUp is intended to give a human voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. We understand that fundamental to a person’s quality of life is their ability to control and contribute to their environment, and to connect with others. The ability to communicate to the greatest extent that a person’s skills allow is vital. While we wish that we could provide every possible phrase that someone would want to say, we realize that this is not possible.
In the Lite version of SpeakingUp, we have provided two voices with ten of the most common or necessary words and phrases someone who cannot speak for themself may need to say. We believe that these words and phrases, along with guiding questions from a caregiver, will allow an individual to begin letting their true voice be heard.
In the full version of SpeakingUp, we allow for a user to store up to four different profiles of voice and phrase selections. This might be four different individuals, or one person in four different situations. There are twenty voices to choose from, including children, teenagers, and adults in a variety of American dialects. Lastly, there are fifty recorded words or phrases for each voice, giving a wide range of communication choices. Full version price $14.99
