Communicating through pictures can be a Godsend for people who don’t communicate verbally or speak English fluently. Here are some free apps which can help with pictorial communication.
SymboTalk – AAC Talker (www.symbotalk.com) is a free app for iOS, Android, or Web-based use. SymboTalk provides immediate access to pictograms which makes it easy to use. It is not possible to save sentences, however.
AutoDraw (www.autodraw.com), is a free Web-based app that interprets rudimentary scribbles into polished line drawings by offering the user a choice of pictures based on the user’s drawing.
