Smooth Talker AAC is a powerful yet easy to use AAC app that allows a series of messages to be recorded and played back by one or two users in many different ways. Based on the Smooth Talker hardware product, it is ideal for teachers, SLTs, OTs, parents and anybody involved in language development.
One or two buttons are shown on-screen and may be round or
square. Buttons can be made to change colour from one message
to the next and each button can be replaced with a photo on a
message by message basis (direct from the iPad camera or from
the gallery). You can also add text to any button or photo.
There are seven highly innovative playback modes including the
hugely popular Conversation mode- a real boon for conversational
Plays the messages back in sequence, beginning with the first to
be recorded. Wraps back to message 1 once all have been played.
Selects the next message at random from the ones recorded. For
example, record the numbers ‘one’ to ‘six’ and the app becomes a
speaking dice. Or record the sound of farmyard animals and use it
in a ‘match the sound to the animal’ game.
Random (No Repeats)
Similar to Random Playback but doesn’t repeat any message and
doesn’t leave any out. This mode is great for classroom activities.
For example- record the names of a group of children and then use
it to select whose go it is next in a game. Everybody gets one go
and nobody gets left out. What could be fairer!
This is a two-button mode. Button number 1 is assigned to
message 1 and button number 2 to message 2, allowing the
user to exercise a choice. Any additional recorded messages are
ignored. For example, record ‘Yes’ and’ No’.
This is a two-button mode. Very powerful feature allows a
conversation to take place between two users in strict back-andforth
order no matter how the buttons are tapped. Very useful
in teaching turn-taking and the art of conversation. Many users
purchase Smooth Talker and Smooth Talker AAC app just for
Conversation mode- it’s unique!
This is a two-button mode. Use button 2 to skip through the
messages at reduced volume to find the correct response and then
use button 1 to play the message in full. Allows a teacher or OT to
‘cue-up’ a message.
Allows the Pretorian Kinetic for iPad product to play messages
depending on the orientation of Kinetic. For example, record six
messages to correspond with photos inserted on each face of a
soft play cube into which Kinetic is inserted. See the Kinesthetic
Learning section of this brochure for more details.
Note that any button can be replaced with a Bluetooth switch
device such as the Pretorian APPlicator or iSwitch for increased
accessibility. This app is also fully accessible via iOS Switch
