Speaks4me® uses the latest graphic images from Pyramid Educational Consultants, Inc with supported speech audio to allow the user to effectively “speak through pictures”.
Speaks4me® is an electronic communications and voice output application device that was initially created for the founder’s young son Callum who suffers from severe autism and learning difficulties and cannot speak.
Speaks4me® is easy to learn and use, simply “drag & drop” the required picture image(s) from the main window to the “virtual” sentence strip to create a single or correctly structured multiple word sentence, then press “Speak” and Speaks4me® will speak the words.
As speaks4me® is similar to the Picture Exchange Communication System or PECS™; it will be easily recognisable to children or adults already familiar with it and allow seamless transition and progression.
