Communication Corner: Verbally

Verbally is a new communication application that turns your iPad into an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) system.  This free application focuses on core words and communication through a type to talk keyboard.  The application has a grid that gives the user access to 60 core words to be used in conjunction with the type to talk keyboard.  This application offers flexibility in conversation for literate users and gives users the ability to create novel messages.  It also has a grid that offers users access to 12 phrases commonly used in conversation.  The built-in text prediction helps speed up the rate of conversation and reduces keystrokes by predicting words as they are typed and by predicting commonly used words.  This program is available with a male and female voice and has 3 keyboard layouts available.  More information about Verbally can be found online at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/verbally/id418671377?mt=8.
