VerbalVictor App Helps Child Communicate, Only $10 In App Store
He's gained the ability to communicate, and rather than relying on an expensive machine to do so, he's simply using an iPad and a new piece of software. Victor has a rare disease that has delayed his development when it comes to speech, and in order to help him out, his father and a few students at Wake Forest University have built an app for the iPhone and iPad that transforms the tablet's screen into a method for communicating.
The app should go on sale for just $10 by next week, and it's just one of a few dozen that are emerging in order to make communications more of a reality for disabled individuals. VerbalVictor is the name, and it's being used in place of other machines that cost upwards of $1000. The app is already making a difference in at least one life, and many parents are eager to try it out in their own home shortly. Nothing like a good smile to really warm up your day.
