A low-tech creation resource. No speech output. Widgit and Symbolstix..
ProxTalker App - Professional. Includes SymbolStix and Widgit libraries (over 27,000 symbols).
ProxTalker App enables you to easily and quickly create low-tech, highly customized visual communication boards. Use these boards to support personal needs, classroom activities, scheduling (i.e first/then), calendars, task lists and expressive and receptive language. A powerful and simple solution for parents and professionals who care for nonverbal individuals.
Making a communication board is as simple as:
1. SET UP a communication board for a particular child, lesson, or topic
2. ARRANGE photos, symbols, and text onto the board
3. PRINT the board, or EMAIL to a parent, teacher, clinician, or friend
Best of all, print communication boards onto adhesive labels and stick the images onto ProxTalker SoundTags to give them VOICE! (ProxTalker and SoundTags sold separately.)
THE SYMBOLSTIX LIBRARY is the most complete and current symbol set available anywhere-- over 15,000 symbols! Appropriate for all ages, SymbolStix symbols are the industry standard for AAC. SymbolStix symbols have a unique style, depicting generic activities and persons as lively stick figures, or stick figures with "an attitude"!
THE WIDGIT SYMBOL LIBRARY has been developed over the past 30 years and now contains more than 12,000 symbols, which cover an English vocabulary of over 40,000 words. Widgit’s simply-drawn, colorful symbols each illustrate a single concept, in a clear and concise way, and cover a range of topics (including many curricular areas) wide enough to make them suitable for symbol users of all ages and abilities.
