Product Description: 

InnerVoice is a communication tool for people on the autism spectrum that teaches speech, language, and social communication skills to people with a variety of abilities.

Main Features: 

  • Features Microsoft Azure artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
  • Can work like a typical communication device: letting the user's thoughts and feelings be heard and understood by others.
  • Combines AI technology with facial expressions, emotions, tone-of-voice, written words, and videos.
  • Visual Language uses Azure AI technology to teach language and literacy skills.
  • The camera displays what the user is looking at. When the user takes a picture the AI system labels the picture with text and describes it with speech.
  • Users can create and edit buttons by taking a picture and the AI system labels the button and adds a description.
  • Users can choose an avatar from the library, use a photo of a face, or a favorite character, and it becomes available in the app.
  • Avatars move, emote, and speak. 
  • Watching a face that the learner connects to is designed to help increase imitation and engagement.
  • Text-to-speech in both English and Spanish.
  • Tap the mouth or the speech bubble and hear the avatar say words aloud.
  • The avatar will deliver any message to friends, family or social media.
  • Add actions to any button to represent verbs, emotions, and concepts by using GIFs by Giphy, as well as Loop, Bounce, and slow-motion videos from Apple.
  • Create video-modeled narratives that help learners understand important situations such as crossing the street, getting in a car, encountering first responders, or other emergencies.
  • Make facial expressions on the avatar's face to express happiness, sadness, or anger.
  • Make messages more personal by using symbols with a universally understood meaning emoji.
  • Create new buttons using AI and edit layouts using photos, videos, or GIFs.
  • Use language translation or handwriting recognition keyboards to include other channels of communication.
  • Teaches communication using Multi-Sensory Semiotics: which pairs sensory stimuli with auditory symbols (words), visual symbols (text), or gestural symbols (sign language).

Primary Specifications: 

  • Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
  • Requires iOS 11.4 or later.
  • Languages: text-to-speech in both English and Spanish with over 55 new language and dialectical choices from Apple's high-quality library. (Users will need iOS 13 or higher to access the Apple voices, though).
