Dear EE members,

I asked on behalf of someone who is autistic. He need iPad apps to help him to communicate.
Refer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKc1Ss5d1Nw&feature=youtu.be&hd=1 

The most useful feature may be the "construct a sentence and then have
the iPad read it back to you" but the voice that says the words sounds
quite artificial...

Is there any application similiar to this where the feature is more advance and the
voice is more nature?

Any contructive idea and hint is welcome !

Regards,

yjchong

Given the vocabulary necessary for a 19-year old, most of the appropriate apps will not have a natural language voice.

Check on:

and

The latter might be the way to go if the cognitive skills are there and you just need a voice app.
