Product Description: 

E-Mintza is a customizable and dynamic system of augmentative and alternative communication aimed at people with autism or with barriers of oral or written communication. It works on different tactile and non-tactile devices, including desktops, netbooks, laptops, and tablets that support Adobe Air technology.

Main Features: 

  • The program consists of two integrated applications:
    • e-Mintza: Generates a dashboard so that when a user clicks on each category a new screen is opened in which a series of pictograms are presented, each with an associated sound.
    • Author's tool: from which, the tutor (family member, therapist or similar) or the same user, where appropriate, will be able to customize e-Mintza and create the communicator adapted to the specific needs of each one.
  • Allows the user to communicate with other people by means of tactile and multimedia technology, adapting to the needs of its users.
  • It promotes its autonomy through a customized agenda.
  • It is multiplatform and works on Windows, MacOS, iPad, and Android tablets.
  • It features a communication board with pictograms or associated images and sounds that allow direct and simple communication. 
  • The board is customizable in terms of the language used, texts, images, videos or sounds, depending on the needs of the user, who can interact preferably through a touch screen on a tablet device, but also through the mouse in the case of a non-touch computer screen.
  • Initially designed to facilitate the communication of people with autism with whom the application has been tested, the program can be used by other people, given its high customization capacity. 
  • It can be useful for children with deafness who have not yet acquired language, people with severe intellectual disability, patients with brain damage acquired due to trauma or accidents, elderly people with neurodegenerative diseases, or people who cannot express themselves by requiring intubation or assisted ventilation during a hospital stay.
  • It can be personalized with personal photos instead of pictograms or letters.
  • The technical development of e-Mintza has been carried out by the company Nesplora, with the essential evaluation by the Association of Autism Gautena in the different phases of the project. 
  • The pictograms used are from the Aragonese portal of pictograms and graphic resources (ARASAAC).
