Android Tablet Button Builder and Communicator, to aid speech therapists and their disabled clients
disorders are varied and age-independent. Many people, children
included, lack or lose the ability to speak, yet maintain fine motor
control. An Android tablet app that displays buttons for phrase
selection could be a portable voice, customizable for different
situations and locations. The device app must have two modes, one for
speech therapists to build button pages, and one for the client to use
as a communications device.
Many Ideas Here
buttons must be added to a page, and pages must be added to the app.
Pages merely contain button layouts. Buttons should be customizable as
to size, location, color, action, page (including multiple pages),
label, and picture. Button Actions should include speaking a word or
phrase, or moving to a different page. The app itself should be
customizable to male or female voice, and volume.
should be presented, and pages and buttons should be easily selectable.
When a button is pressed, the preprogrammed action should be taken.
In addition to speaking a word or phrase, buttons might also be capable
of playing a song or video, or controlling an electrical outlet to
activate a device.
