  • A new AAC app for iPad
    I am one of the designers of Avatalker AAC; an iPad app for communicating for nonverbal children to adults. Avatalker AAC is new to the industry and its interface has been designed to overcome some of the mistakes made by the current apps on the market. I thought you should be aware of it for comparison.

    Avatalker ® AAC is a robust, full-featured augmentative and alternative communication solution designed for the iOS platform (Apple’s iPad and iPad Mini). It gives nonverbal children and adolescents the ability to build phrases and sentences pictographically, which are then converted to audible speech. It features a 1,500+ word vocabulary and exclusive symbol set library by Aurora Symbols that is easy to navigate and fun to use!

    Please visit our website avatalkeraac.com and watch our demonstration videos. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
    If you would like further email information sent to you or If you have any direct questions please contact us.

    Erik or Norm Nanstiel,
    Avatalker AAC

    Thank you;

    Hello,

    I’m a speech and language therapist that has just recommended AACORN to one of my students in my school district. The district is asking if AACORN is compatible with iPad 9? Please let me know as we would like to purchase this app.

      Ginna, it’s probably best to contact them directly for current information and future plans. I haven’t seen any updates for the past 3-4 years but they may have something in the works that I don’t know about.
