Voice output on any device for only $49.99.
CoreVoice® is a core-based voice output app for any phone, tablet, or smart board.
Designed by a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist, CoreVoice simplifies communication for individuals with communication disorders and can easily be integrated into speech therapy sessions, circle time, literacy lessons, and help people communicate at bedside.
Sentences are built by touching each word and then pressing the sentence bar to have the device speak it. Users can also delete their entire sentence, or remove it one selection at a time.
The application has options to speak each word on press, grid zoom levels, quick phrases, masking/hiding buttons, a large keyboard, simple device voice selection, ability to customize any button with camera photos/gallery images/emojis, and can create unlimited custom boards (each containing up to 600 icons with touch-to-speak capabilities). Grids can also be enlarged automatically to allow for different grid sizes… allowing CoreVoice to be used even as a large switch.
The application comes in English and Spanish, yet custom boards for any language can also be created.
Modify any button and create unlimited new boards. Use your camera and images for buttons. New settings include the ability to hide the navigation row, default to home, protect settings, and auto-size grids to fit the screen.Visit CoreVoiceApp.com for more info.

Use Alexa to practice anywhere...
We're proud to have built the first speech therapy skills for Amazon's Alexa. This allows Speech Pathologists and their clients an easy way to practice whenever it's convenient.
“Alexa, enable Speech Therapy Practice”
This skill provides exercises to Speech Pathologists like basic who what, opposites, colors, and yes no questions. This skill is to be used by Speech Pathologists during therapy. We do not store information about users of this skill. This tool does not provide medical advice, and is for informational and educational purposes only, and is not a substitute for professional medical advice, treatment or diagnosis.
“Alexa, enable Speech Device Practice”
This skill allows users to practice core vocabulary words, phrases, and sentences with their speech generating device. While this skill works perfectly alongside CoreVoice, it can be used with any other AAC app or device. This skill allows parents, teachers, and therapists to practice learning how to find vocabulary on a user’s device. The free version allows practice with most core words found on the home screen. The full version for words, phrases, and sentences is only $4.99 / month.
You don’t have to own an Alexa to use it. Simply go to your Alexa app (free to download on Amazon), search for “Speech Device Practice” to enable it…then say “Alexa, speech device practice” to get started. Make sure to turn up the volume on your AAC device and sit next to Alexa in a quiet room. She’ll then work with users to practice important vocabulary while keeping track of the correct and incorrect answers (which she’ll then tell you at the end of the practice).
This skill is not marketed to (or for sole use by) children, and is to be used only with direct adult supervision (included by not limited to parental, teacher, medical professionals) to assist with speech device practice. We do not store information about users of this skill.
“Alexa, enable 1p36 Deletion Syndrome”
We created this skill to help bring information and awareness to Alexa about 1p36 Deletion Syndrome. It was created for the national 1p36dsa.org conference that we spoke at regarding technology and AAC.
