AbleNet Introduces SoundingBoard, an iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch Application for Persons with Disabilities


ST. PAUL, Minn.--AbleNet introduces SoundingBoard, the groundbreaking iPhone, iPad and iPod touch application designed specifically for persons with disabilities. The application allows clinicians, personal care assistants, or special education instructors to create communication boards quickly and easily that allow people to “speak” simply by touching a message symbol shown on the display screen.

We are thrilled to now offer individuals with disabilities an easy-tech communication tool using exciting consumer technology from Apple,” said Jen Thalhuber, AbleNet CEO. “People can use SoundingBoard™ with their iPod touch, iPad or iPhone to create new avenues of quick, easy communication. We are excited about the opportunities for people who are unable or reluctant to use their own voice to communicate.”

SoundingBoard holds many possibilities. For example, teachers can use the application to quickly create an exam to test comprehension. Older students moving into the work environment can use SoundingBoard to communicate with their new employer and work team members. Patients in a hospital or a dentist office can use SoundingBoard to communicate with their caregivers when they are temporarily unable to speak.

Additional features include:

* Hundreds of pre-loaded AbleNet symbols for nearly every common situation—choose symbols, record the associated message and create a communication board in under two minutes
* Ability to use photos from your own device library—easily customize communication boards to each unique situation
* Take a photo on the iPhone or the new iPod Touch to use with SoundingBoard immediately—adapt quickly to new situations in the classroom, workplace or community

SoundingBoard is the newest member of a long line of communication devices from AbleNet. Millions of people worldwide with a variety of medical and developmental conditions use AbleNet’s Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) products. This new device will benefit a wide range of disabilities, from children with developmental language disorders, to individuals with severe physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, to people living with the effects of a stroke.
