Say Some More is a programmable communications app. It comes with many pre-made Conversations, but it allows teachers and families to use the camera function of the iPad to insert photographs of people and meaningful items. When a square displaying a photograph, graphic or text box is tapped, a recorded voice speaks the message and displays the text in any language. The main screen can present 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 or 12 squares, and each square can launch a single word, phrase, or entire paragraph of text and recorded speech. It can be used to express feelings, reply to questions, order food at a restaurant, describe what part of the body hurts or engage in more complex conversations.
It can also be used in place of a communication journal between home and school where photographs of the day are taken and inserted into a Conversation and then, when at home, the child can tap on a photo to have a recorded voice explain the event. It is so easy to program that, in integrated settings, classmates can create Conversations that the student with special needs can access. In addition, it can be used to play music and as a teaching tool where tapping a square launches a song or information about an item of interest. This information can include phonics, emotions, the solar system, dinosaurs, trains… That’s the beauty of this affordable, effective, programmable app.
