Vocalyx allows its user to communicate via the synthesized voice (called speech synthesis) of your device. This voice can express messages prepared in advance or composed by the person themselves.
For this, you have access in Vocalyx to several Communication keyboards. These keyboards are composed of touches, associated with the messages that the synthetic voice will pronounce!
Here is an example :
I'd like some bread
VOCALYX makes it possible to respond to very different and complementary contexts of conversation and re-education: they range from the most common and anticipated (libraries of pre-recorded and personal images for frequent use), to at least expected (the user writes on the keyboard the sentence he wishes to vocalize). Our tool and our image databases, the Vocalythèques, also allow us to offer you about twenty communication keyboards according to your preferences for children and adults.
All these features will make it easy for you to create your most suitable tool for vocalizeyour words, messages, and phrases at high speed!
centains of photos, sorted by categories or not, allow to compose very quickly sentences and exercises, simply by aligning them.
The photo format makes accessible communication to people with reading comprehension disorders, without infantilizing them.
Hundreds of pictograms allow to illustrate words, verbs or emotions that would be more difficult to represent in photo. Some users will find themselves in these more refined and precise images, classified by themes or not.
We have designed 4 communication keyboards for children with the ARASAAC image database, used by some orthophonists.
These pictograms are particularly well suited to the context of autism because the drawings are devoid of superfluous details that could distract the child from the concept to be communicated.
These keyboards, called "Elementaries", contain sentences from the context of the life of a child, all ready or to be composed according to the level.
For repetitive conversations, in preparation for future exchanges or for a collection of exercises, you can create your own prepared texts, gathered or not by themes. To express yourself quickly and in complete autonomy at the doctor's, at the bakery, at work, at school, with friends, or to train at home, it's up to you to set the tone!
A click in the read bar gives access to the AZERTY keyboard of the tablet ! Once in a keyboard, you can therefore compose or complete your messages at any time, and read them with the synthetic voice thanks to the PLAY button ►!
You can open all images from the full-screen keys, thanks to a double click!
Whether you want to talk about a person, indicate an object at home or integrate any element in your exchanges, you can easily designate them on your visuals , and especially, precisely !.
Once your messages are made up using images or text, Vocalyx can keep them as text and send them by mail or SMS. Ask to do a run, an information, or simply discuss, you can at any time interact with your relatives, your health professionals, or with artisans near you.
The many parameters of personalization allow you to create your own keyboards and save them!
