Text-to-speech AAC app
Predictable is designed for people who are literate but don't have the ability to speak possibly due to cerebral palsy, motor neurone disease (ALS), autism, laryngectomy, stroke, apraxia or brain injury. It will soon be accessible via Eye Tracking!
Predictable will soon offer integration with the Irisbond Hiru eye tracker, so that Predictable can be controlled entirely with eye-gaze, available on newer iPad Pro devices.
Face gestures are also compatible with eye tracking: you can look at the items and select them by blinking. Watch the video to see how accurate it is!
We're currently gathering feedback and testing eye tracking
Head tracking and Gesture Speak
Predictable offers an enhanced head tracking feature using face recognition technology available on newer iPad Pro devices.
Face gestures are also compatible with scanning methods: you can scan the items with switches and select by blinking. You can also create recipes of gestures to create quick and easy access to a huge number of phrases.
Other alternative access methods
time and force delay to prevent mishits and accommodate tremor or other motor difficulties
switch scanning access - use one or two switches via a Bluetooth switch box and the on-screen scanning
touch anywhere - use the screen as a switch
Phrase bank and grid view
Predictable now offers the possibility to use the phrase bank in a grid view. You can customise your phrase bank content and the size of the grid.
