Free Speech is a sound board (AAC program) for people who need help speaking. When you press a button, a sound is played.

Free Speech is ready to be personalized for your needs:

- You can create and edit buttons using your device itself.
- Buttons can read your text using the text-to-speech (TTS) built-into Android, or can play recorded sounds.
- You can display text, images, or both on a button.
- You can "chain" buttons to make it easy to speak hundreds of sentences in just a few taps.
- You can choose how many buttons to display at a time, so that you have as many buttons as you can easily work with on a single screen.
- For things you don't need to say very often, Free Speech also includes a "type to talk" keyboard interface.

Best of all, it's free to use.

    seemed promising. easy to create buttons/tabs but wouldn't consistently provide voice output. My 7yo son is autistic/non verbal & needs solid app, but without consistent voice output, it would just make him more frustrated & less likely to use any device.

    This app is perfect for someone who struggles with aphasia but is still able to read. I love the customization options, and the ability for each word pressed to take you to a page with the most likely next word is extremely helpful. Also, my thanks to the dev for implementing a consistent back/home button when adding new tabs! I do have one request, it's the only reason I keep a 2nd AAC app instal

    I have used this app to help a number of friends after traumatic incidents, works wonders easy to adapt and change the buttons to suit both the user and the carer. Raj Khuti sevasolutions
