    We,TORIKEN (M.Torii’s laboratory of Media Information Science of Aichi Institute of Technology in JAPAN), would like to introduce our brand-new AAC(Augmentative and Alternative Communication).
    This application has a lot of advantages compare with existing ones.

    It’s simple!
    Some assist applications for smart phones or mobile games aimed to help people who have communication disorder have already introduced.
    But because of the complicated functions disturb to use the applications easily, so people who need communication assistance cannot make the best use of them.
    We left out excessive functions and aimed to “simple and easy to use” on “Let’s Talk!”.

    It’s cheap!-
    We offer this useful application at a low price ($2.99 at App Store) for everyone who needs support to communication can use it with no hesitation.

    It’s easy!
    This application is made to express basic requests such as “I want to do (something).” or “I need (something).”
    We focus on the objectives to the request situation to understand easily for both talkers and listeners.

    It can be switched for different situations!
    “Let’s Talk!” has 2 modes.
    On “Supportive Mode”, a supporter shows the application to a user.
    On Self-use Mode, a user can tell what they want directly with categories or symbols.
    You can expect more effective communication by switching each mode according to the situation.

    It has a loud and clear sound!
    The volume of “Let’s Talk!” is much enough to be able to hear outdoor or in a crowded place.
    The voice and sound is very clear to easy to listen.

    It adopts the idea of real users!
    We discussed with teachers of a special support school who actually deal with autistic children about the situations or methods to develop this application, and narrowed down the request situations which may stimulate the desire to communicate with others.

    It’s funny!
    All children love jokes and funny sounds.
    “Let’s Talk!” has “Joke” category with which children will take interest to the application.
    Also this category may be a motive for communication.

    It’s close to the dairy life!
    It is difficult for people with heavy mental retardation to make a choice among too many choices and it will be the cause to disturb to use existing AAC applications.
    On “Let’s Talk!” we concentrate on some contents related to the dairy life, and you can see the symbols at a glance.
    To limit the numbers of symbols picked by a supporter on Supportive Mode from 1 to 4 makes it easy to choose and fulfills a simple operation for a user.

    In near future, we’ll put a picture function, which you can make your original icon using a picture you take or your own voice and use it as a new category or symbol.

    For more details, please visit our website: http://www.ne-kite.com/index.html

    We will glad to accept your questions or opinions anytime.

    We hope this new application, “Let’s Talk!” brings the happiness and the joy of communication to many people.

    And if you know any organizations or schools for autistic children where we can introduce this application, we’ll very appreciate.
    We hope this new application, “Let’s Talk!”, brings the happiness and the joy of communication to many people.
