Arriving in my inbox this evening was news of Predictable a switch access alternative & augmentative communication aid available in the iTunes app store for iPad and iPhone users.
The email claims Predictable offers:
- Voice output – including 2 Australian voices
- Switch access
- Sophisticated predictive text engine
- Choice of keyboard
- Phrase bank
- Back ups
- Email and facebook links
I haven’t looked into it in any depth but on the surface it appears a very interesting ‘app with potential’. I particularly like the idea that some editing can be done in Excel restored to the device.
I have requested information about their ‘bluetooth switch interface’ and will share as soon as they get back to me.
Switch Access for the iDevices are starting to make them even more attractive than they were initially but at AUD$199 I will have to save my pennies for a little longer before I am able to test drive it.
