ChatAble 3 now live
ChatAble is a grid and scene communication app, combining AAC methods and allowing for more comprehensive communication.
3 communication page-types
ChatAble enables you to build grids, visual scenes, and hybrid pages.
Grids are really flexible and customisable. Resize with any number of columns and rows up to 10x10. Add PCS symbols, images from a safe websearch or use your own images (label text and images are both resizable and can be moved). Add videos, weblinks, customised audio and more!
To set up a scene, take a photo and place (resizable, reshapable) hotspots over parts of the image. Each hotspot can be programmed to play audio, video & other media. Scenes give extra context to the messages you’re about to speak, as all messages are triggered from different parts of the same photo.
Hybrids give you the best of both worlds, a scene can be used for the primary messages, with grid cells available as backup for anything you want to say that isn’t directly referenced in the scene image.
Supports language development with vocabulary & grammar support
Start communicating with ChatAble in few taps, using our core vocabularies. They're available for Kids, Teens and Adults; localised for UK or US users. The app also includes clever core prediction; an automatically learning symbol prediction based on your speech history.
Building new pages, take advantage of our automatic word tagger and colour coding system — we use the Fitzgerald key as standard but it's fully customisable — to automatically shade the cell backgrounds according to word type. Long press on grid cells to bring up naturally grammar support, which shows plurals, possessives, alternate tenses and a range of adjective options.
Customisable to suit your personality
Change appearance settings including background colour and fonts (including fonts for people with dyslexia or visual impairment), and choose from a range of voices — ChatAble 3 now has 2 new children's voices available!
Keep a track of learning and progress
ChatAble has an inbuilt analytics tool which tracks the words used; the number of messages spoken; the unique words used; and the average message length. These display in graphs inside the app and they also generate into a PDF report which can be printed or emailed.
Grammar supportThe Naturally grammar support and the Fitzgerald colour key will help you to communicate in a better and more efficient way.
GoGo!AddGoGo!Add is a revolutionary way to create a grid: type in the words you want in your page, and ChatAble will do the rest of the job, picking one of the PCS symbols included in the app that best match you word.
GoGo!ScanWith GoGo!Scan you can create an interactive grid of your paper communication board: take a picture of your board, set the hotspots and ChatAble will recognise text and pictures to use in your page.
