For children and adults who are unable or reluctant to speak, AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) solutions encourage social interaction and provide greater independence. Acapela gives people a voice, enables everyone to be heard.
AAC includes all forms of communication that are used to express thoughts, needs, wants, and ideas.
People with severe speech or language problems rely on AAC to increase social interaction, school performance and feelings of self-worth.
The solutions using voice technology range from simple buttons or pages that speak when touched, to very sophisticated systems. Special augmentative aids (also known as Assistive Technologies or AT), such as picture and symbol communication boards and electronic devices, are available to help people express themselves.
Solutions may be based on familiar equipment such as mobile devices, tablets and laptops, others use equipment specially designed to support communication.
Acapela Inclusive provides the voice for AAC solutions, let them talk, giving AAC specialists the perfect tool, online and offline, for working on a wide range of operating systems.
Acapela’s repertoire includes over 100 voices in 34 languages there’s a voice for everyone.
We provide a voice for children with speech or language disorders through a unique children’s voice portfolio, which we are expanding.
For individuals diagnosed with speech or language disorders – resulting from ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or other conditions such as aphasia, dysarthria or apraxia – we can recreate a synthetic version of their voice, to preserve this crucial part of their identity.
For companies or organisations wanting to use their own exclusive voice, we can create custom voices.
