PrAACtical Alert: Free AAC App
A- A+

If you follow us on Facebook you know that we got some disturbing news this weekend about an AAC app developer who launched an app based on someone else’s work without giving credit. Boo, hiss. Long story that we won’t get into here, but it was disheartening, to say the least. While we are pretty upset to see this happen, we are thrilled to let that karma play out and turn our attention to something wonderful.

That ‘something wonderful’ is the Give Speech Foundation, a New York nonprofit that is developing a new AAC app for the iPad that they plan to price below their actual costs. For now, FreeSpeech is available without charge and, apparently, will remain so while it is in beta. The development team has big plans to improve the app in the next few months, and then charge a nominal fee. Your feedback will be very valuable to them as they move forward.

You can download FreeSpeech in the App Store now. Remember to provide feedback so that the Give Speech team can benefit from your experiences as they further develop the app.

To the Give Speech Team: May the downloads be plentiful, the reviews positive, and the feedback helpful. But mostly, may you know the joy of making a difference.
