Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

May 24, 2021

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

There are so many available Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) apps and devices available that it can be overwhelming to find what works best for you or your child.  One available option is the Cboard AAC Web App!

According to its description on the developer’s website, Cboard “helps users with speech and language impairments to communicate with symbols and text-to-speech.”

One unique feature about the Cboard AAC App is that users don't need to log in or sign up to use it; the boards are readily available by visiting Cboard's website.  However, if you sign in and create an account, you'll have access to more than 3400 symbols from the Mulberry Symbol Set.

Other features include:

  • The Cboard AAC app works on modern browsers and is available on a wide variety of platforms, including desktops, tablets, and mobile phones
  • Cboard not only focuses on typical everyday content but also on emotions and feelings
  • Offline support available on Google Chrome (on both desktop and Android device)
  • Supports 33 languages
  • And much more

Visit Cboard.IO to learn more or check it out on Google Play!
