ClaroCom has an easy-to-use user interface that is appropriate for users who face challenges with social communication. ClaroCom helps AAC users to communicate with people outside their family in a variety of social situations.
Type into the Message Window using the on-screen keyboard. Press the Speak button to have text in the Message Window spoken. ClaroCom can also speak each word as it is typed or inserted into the Message Window. Use the built in Word Prediction and Phrase Prediction to speed up writing. Create text using the phrase banks to find a phrase. ClaroCom is loaded with some standard phrases. More phrases can be added and any new phrases that are typed can be stored and used again.
ClaroCom has built in Word Prediction when typing into the Message Window. ClaroCom’s Word Prediction takes account of word frequency and previous words. There is an initial Word Prediction list loaded on start-up, and ClaroCom can learn new words as they are typed if desired.
ClaroCom has the option of Phrase Prediction when typing into the Message Window. The phrases are loaded from the contents of the visible categories and ClaroCom stores new phrases that are typed or added. The predicted phrases appear on a Phrase bar above the keyboard. Phrases can be easily searched for, and bulk phrases can be easily added.
Prediction works with acronyms, so as ‘awn’ is typed, ‘Are We Nearly There Yet?’ appears instantly. This is a very fast way to build up and learn a collection of phrases rapidly.
Speak a predicted word or phrase immediately with a ‘touch and hold’ instead of composing into a message – another faster way to get speech out.
A swipe brings up more phrases and words that can be easily scanned through. Phrases can include fallible prompts so ClaroCom will know, when the ‘I would like ___’ phrase is selected, that immediately the user will be asked for the word to complete the phrase.
Users can create own phrases list or edit existing phrase catalogue.
