Voice4Me - Free AAC Software


Alternative and Augmentative Communication Text To Speech For Windows And Mac


Description:


   Voice4Me is designed as a quick and simple way to bring speech to users who have difficulty speaking. When the user clicks on a picture, the computer responds by reading the text assigned to the picture.  For example, if the user clicks on a picture of a moon, the computer may respond by saying “I am tired, it is time for bed.” Voice4Me allows the settings to be customized with pictures and text to meet the needs of the user.  Also, there is a blank text box for the user to type text for the computer to read.


Cost: FREE


Voice4Me is freeware. Anyone can use it without charge. If you use this program frequently, please consider sending a few dollars to help us maintain our programs and site.

Because different devices require different screen resolutions and settings, Voice4Me doesn’t modify the resolutions of the pictures that it holds. It is suggested that image resolutions of a maximum 640 pixels will work best with most computers. Older computers may need smaller resolutions to load pictures at reasonable speeds.  A good batch image resizer/converter, to scale pictures before installing them to Voice4Me, can be found at

Voice4Me comes with over 200 pictures. Our pictures do not cover all situations. Voice4Me can use most picture formats. Voice4Me can use pictures from digital cameras, graphics programs, Photo CDs, and pictures downloaded from the Internet. The Internet has sites for downloading free pictures that this program can use. We suggest scale/crop the pictures to a maximum of 512 pixels, before loading them into Voice4Me.
