Free Speech

Speaking assistance

Free Speech is a sound board for people who have problems speaking. When you press a button, a sound is played. You can use recorded sounds, record new sounds, or generate sounds using the text-to-speech (TTS) built-into Android. Free Speech is an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) program that provides a low-cost alternative to dedicated speech generating devices (SGD).
