App for people with communication problems
- Maker app SwiftKey, known from the eponymous virtual keyboard for smartphones, has launched an application that allows people to communicate with symbols. The program is intended for those who have trouble with spoken or written forms of communication, such as people with some form of autism.
The idea is that users can form whole sentences by choosing from packages with symbols. This should enable them to express their thoughts in a more precise way than through words.The app uses a form of prediction, where it already certain symbols adduced would be logical to use the ' batty ' sentence. Dze technique is based on the same predictive capabilities using traditional keyboards SwiftKey.Symbols like the app is called, is now free to download for Android phones and tablets.
