HelpTalk is directed at people unable to communicate fluently orally or through writing with health professionals, family, or any other person. HelpTalk allows users to create sets of actions that represent their needs in terms of communication, with the actions most suited for each disability/user. When the user taps each of the options the device speaks the selected command.
- Create a profile containing the actions most useful to any situation. A user can create a profile suited for their day-to-day life, a specific event, traveling, education, etc..
- When each action is tapped, the device speaks the respective command.
- Create profiles in multiple languages (English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Finish, Danish, Hungarian, Norwegian, Polish, Swedish).
- Text-to-speech engine is needed for the selected language installed on the device.
- If what the user wants to express isn't contained in the currently loaded profile, switch to the "Talk" screen to write any sentence.
