The KarlSpeech App has been designed to help people communicate!

KarlSpeech is an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) App which can be used by people with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy and many other conditions that hinder the ability to communicate. The current version of the KarlSpeech App is available on Apple iOS devices only and in the English language. KarlSpeech is available on iPhone, iPad and iPod.

We asked healthcare professionals including Speech Pathologists to use a prototype version of the App and requested constructive feedback. We designed a working prototype which was evaluated by Speech Pathologists and Care Professionals in the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland & the UK. We listened to the feedback, implemented it, redesigned the App - and now it has become the current KarlSpeech App.

KarlSpeech App Research

• Interviews with Speech Therapists in USA, Canada, Australia, UK, Ireland
• User Testing with Specialist Universities & Hospitals
• User Testing with Speech & Language Therapists (worldwide)
• Speech Therapist App Reviews Conducted

Our Story

It all began when Karl a 24-year-old Dystonia sufferer needed something that would help him communicate with his family and friends. Karl is non verbal and his parents used several AAC communications apps but didn’t find a solution that suited Karl’s needs. There are many excellent AAC apps on the market but Karl wanted something that was very straight forward and he found that lots of App screens were cluttered and confusing. After trying lots of options, Karl’s parents decided to get an AAC App developed that would enable their don Karl to communicate more effectively and the KarlSpeech App is the result of a lot of deliberation, testing, trialling and development. Karl now uses the App every day. The KarlSpeech App is also used by Karl’s parents as they organize Karl’s groups and library of phrases.

As Karl is non verbal, it’s not so much about “Speech” but “Communications Independence” – and the KarlSpeech App helps provide that independence.

Planned Future developments for the KarlSpeech App

The KarlSpeech App will be evolving in the future. New native language versions will be introduced including Spanish, Portuguese, French and more. Keep informed by subscribing to our newsletter at www.karlspeech.com.
