Words present themselves automatically, via a series of branching pathways. Aacorn is very intuitive for the general user. It is designed especially for children and the iPad

You can choose between boy and girl US, UK, and Australian voices, speaking many hundreds of very expressive words that can be used to form an infinite number of sentences. Or you can use the built-in recording studio to record new voices.  Aacorn also supports users with fine motor control difficulties because words are selected on release of button press, and users can disable multi-touch swipe gestures and choose between real-time or speak it later speech.

    How awesome is it that I just ran into this app, and now here is a raffle for it. I live in the Caribbean and I am the Speech Teacher at my school/ (on the island). There are no SLPs or Au.Ds or anything/anyone comparative to the customary in the USA. Winning this app will be sooooo beneficial to my kids at the Special Education Unit. We have no resources. And anything that I need for them comes out of pocket and I’m sure we all know how costly any kind of Speech device/manual/testing can be.

    I would greatly appreciate being chosen please.
