TippyTalk is a unique AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) solution that enables two-way communication as well as in-person conversations. Many users receive both a tablet device and the TippyTalker app at low or no cost from a school, clinic, or therapy center or through state programs.
Others can download the low-cost app from the AppStore or GooglePlay. The companion TippyTalk Community app is always free for TippyTalk Managers and TippyTalk Community Members.
The TippyTalker needs only an iPad or Android device for TippyTalker and Internet access. TippyTalk Managers and Community Members can use a smartphone, iPad, or tablet with Internet access.
Your message may be spoken aloud to someone in the room OR sent to one of your Community Members. For this example, we've selected "Dad."
To send Dad a message, choose a sentence starter card from the provided photos and illustrations.
Select the rest of your message. Listen to the message, if you wish, and send it to Dad. He'll receive the message and send a response.
Use the free TippyTalk Community app to compose a response. Your written message will be spoken aloud for the TippyTalker. You can also send videos, photos, and audio recordings.
The TippyTalk Manager can customize the app using the more than 10,000 SymbolStix images included. You also can add photos and recordings in your voice for a truly personal environment. Using these images and/or recordings, the Manager creates "cards" for the TippyTalker, who selects them to compose messages.
