Our Apps Collect No User Information

The US Federal Trade Commission has found that many apps for kids collect information about kids without appropriate disclosure or parental control.

We want to be sure you know that the TapToTalk apps collect no information about kids (or adult users, for that matter).

Of course, TapToTalk Designer has a bit of information about the owner of the Designer account so we can identify your account. All of this information is under your control using the My Account link in Designer. But the apps that play TapToTalk on the various devices collect no information whatsoever.

Does "Brand X" tablet run TapToTalk?

It's holiday shopping time again. Everyone seems to be advertising inexpensive tablets to give at gifts. We get a lot of questions this time of year whether "Brand X" tablet will run TapToTalk.

Here are some things to look for:
  • Does the vendor have a web site with support information? This is the first thing we look at if we have not heard of the brand. The site should have a support link and a copy of the user manual to download. If not, we recommend that you avoid buying it.
  • Is it an official copy of Android? Android is "open source." That means that it is free for tablet vendors to use and make changes to. Unofficial versions are legal, but, don't include Google's Play Store. That is the app store where you can find our free app for Android to try. While you can install the free app manually by yourself, you'll need to be comfortable with hooking up your tablet to a computer, copying files and changing settings on your Android device. Proceed with caution with tablets with unofficial Android versions. Things often don't work.
  • Are there online reviews of the tablet? We try to find any past user reviews of the tablet or brand online. We suggest you do so, as well.
  • Can you try it or return it for a full refund? Some inexpensive tablets have touchscreens that are not responsive, bad WiFi and/or cheap speakers, to name just some items where they have cut corners to bring down the cost. Nothing is more frustrating to a child as tapping on a screen that doesn't respond. Some stores charge a restocking fee if you open the box and return it.
What we have learned over the last three holiday shopping seasons is that these "bargain" holiday tablets are no bargain, especially if your loved one is planning to use it as a communication device.

This year there are many great TapToTalk tablets that are $200 or less, for example:
This doesn't include reconditioned Nook Color, Nook Tablet and Kindle Fire devices that are sold officially by Barnes and Noble or Amazon at reduced prices. It also doesn't include the iPad which most of our customers use, but, is not in the $200 price range

In summary, if you are buying a tablet for communication, buy a known brand from a store or web site known for selling electronic devices. During the holidays, other stores stock inexpensive tablets that may be okay as ereaders or for watching Netflix, but they can't support you. A "red flag" is when the device only surfaces during the holiday shopping season. Avoid them, if you can. If you must, please try them with our free app before you buy or during their return period.

Announcing Page Builder, a Major TapToTalk Designer Upgrade

TapToTalk Designer now sports a new album editor called Page Builder.
  • Build your albums the way you think about them, picture-by-picture, page-by-page
  • Choose a picture, then just click-to-add
  • See your album on the screen as you edit it
We've developed Page Builder after listening to great feedback from our many users over the last three years. We want to thank all of you who have helped us improve Designer. Page Builder makes album design and maintenance easy and intuitive.

For new users, Page Builder is the default editor.

For current Designer users, you can still use the "old" editor, Album Outliner. It is the default for current users. But you can try Page Builder with one click, and make it your default editor if you wish. You can even switch between Page Builder and Album Outliner (here's how).

For more information about Page Builder, see the Page Builder section of TapToTalk Designer's online help.

Keep Home and School in Sync with TapToTalk Sharing

TapToTalk Sharing is an easy-to-use feature available to all TapToTalk Designer users. It let's you share a TapToTalk between two different Designer accounts.

TapToTalk Mom Moira Saucedo shares (no pun intended) this tip:

For a couple of years now, my son's school IEP team had one TapToTalk account, and I (the parent) had another. We each had our own devices; my son would use the school's device while at school, and ours at home. The challenge was keeping the albums synced. Before TapToTalk Sharing became available, I had to log in with the school's login and copy over the albums I had created on our TapToTalk. With the TapToTalk Sharing feature, it is so much easier to keep the albums in sync, to reinforce my son's communication goals at school, and at home.

Thanks, Moira!

Here are step-by-step instructions for using TapToTalk Sharing.

How to Prevent Deleting Apps

Kids have curious fingers and sometimes they do things we wish they wouldn't. Here is a tip about how to prevent a child from deleting an app on an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. 
  1. Tap the Settings icon (the one with the gears)
  2. Tap General (may need to scroll down)
  3. Tap Restrictions (may need to scroll down)
  4. Under "Allow" scroll down to Delete Apps and turn it Off
Of course, we would like you to do this so they don't delete TapToTalk, but...

How to Prevent Jumping from App to App

If you use TapToTalk on an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, here is a helpful tip:

In the current version of iOS you can use a sidewards motion with a hand to switch between open apps. Kids seem to discover this quickly.

Most people don’t know how to close apps or just don't bother. So you may inadvertently have apps open.

This can cause a child to switch away from TapToTalk. Here is how to prevent this:
  1. Go to the Settings app of the device
  2. Select "General"
  3. Turn “Multitasking Gestures” to “OFF”

Happy Mothers Day to TapToTalk Moms Everywhere

(Originally posted for Mother's Day 2010, it is as true today as it was then.)

Dear TapToTalk Mom,

It has been a privilege to get to know hundreds of you over the last year. A few face-to-face, more over the phone, and even more in email conversations, mom blogs and on Facebook. Nine out of ten of the parents we have contact with are moms.

You told us that when you found out you had a special needs child, your life changed in ways you'd never imagined. You found the strength and courage to carry on, to figure out how to get your child's needs met in a world that often did not seem to be able to respond, or even want to. Love is indeed a powerful force.

When we designed TapToTalk, you and your child were on our minds. We wanted to give you a tool to help your child communicate that was affordable and that your child would want to use. Now, we hear from you all the time. You tell us what we are doing right and what we need to improve. Your voice is heard in every one of our meetings, as we make decisions. We call it the TapToTalk Mom Test: “How will this work for the moms?”

Some of you told us that "you aren't good at computers," yet you wasted no time figuring out how to use TapToTalk Designer. You added pictures of your family and your child's favorite foods. You learned and worked hard for your child.

You have stunned us with your creativity in the ways you use TapToTalk to meet your child's needs. You bring smiles to our faces, and very often tears to our eyes, when you tell us how TapToTalk has helped you, your child, and your family.

You make what we do feel incredibly worthwhile every day. Please keep your feedback coming. We, and especially your child, could not do it without you.

Lenny Greenberg and Phil Bookman
Founders of Assistyx, the TapToTalk Company

Why one Password and ID is not enough

You log in to TapToTalk Designer with your email address and Designer password.

You set up your device to play your TapToTalk with your TapToTalk ID and TapToTalk password.

Why don't we use the same login ID and password for both?

There are two reasons:

Reason 1-Security: If someone knows your Designer ID and password, they have complete access to your account. They can change anything, including the account information, like email address and password. They can see personal information and, possibly, change or delete albums or designs that you created.

However, if they only know your TapToTalk ID (a 10 digit number that is automatically created for each TapToTalk) and password (which you control in Designer), they can only download and play your albums on a device. If someone has your TapToTalk ID and password (for example, if you share the TapToTalk with them), they cannot use it to access your Designer account.

This is why we recommend that you not use the same password for Designer and your TapToTalk.

Reason 2-Designer Accounts with several TapToTalks: A single TapToTalk Pro or Agency account can have many individual TapToTalks. Each of those TapToTalks needs its own unique ID and password. That's how your device knows which one to play.

The good news is that you only need to enter the TapToTalk ID and password once, when you initially set up a device to use them. Unlike your Designer login information, you do not need to remember the TapToTalk ID and password. If you ever need them, you see them using the TapToTalks link in Designer.

TapToTalk Does Languages

At a recent conference for SLPs, a presenter confidently stated, "AAC apps don't do languages."

We beg to differ. As of this writing, we have heard from customers in more than 40 countries who are using TapToTalk in more than 20 languages.

With TapToTalk Designer, you can record the sounds played when a picture is tapped in any language. Anyone can do the recording. You are totally in control of the language, accent, voice and vocabulary. Similarly, wherever text is used, you can enter it in any language.

Designer also lets you use text-to-speech to generate the sounds in five languages (English, Spanish, French, German and Italian). But you can record the sounds in any language.

So at least one AAC app does languages--TapToTalk.

Here's more information.

How to make uniform grids on TapToTalk pages

The TapToTalk app sizes pictures on a page to make the best use of screen space. The fewer pictures on a page, the larger they appear, and vice-versa. This works just fine for most TapToTalk users, but some do better when there are the same number of pictures, all the same size, on every page. The uniformity helps them focus.

page 1
It's easy to make a uniform grid in TapToTalk Designer. First, decide how many pictures you want on each page. In this example, we chose six. That's the maximum number of pictures we'll use per page in our album.

On the first page, we have six pictures to use. But when the emotion picture is tapped, we want it to lead to a page that only has four emotion pictures. So we added two placeholder pictures to complete our six-picture grid. We chose the "white" picture from the "colors" category in Designer's picture library, but you can use any picture that works for you.

emotions page
Now our emotions page has four emotion pictures and two white squares fill out the six-picture grid.

If you use this technique, you'll probably want to be sure the placeholder pictures have no captions and no sounds (though we know one customer who makes the placeholder pictures say "Oops!" if tapped).

Tips & Tricks: Using Merge and Move to Combine Albums

Last week, we added two new albums to the Learning category in TapToTalk Designer's standard album library (see Tap Tutor: Fun Help for Tapping Problems). These albums can help improve accuracy for TapToTalk users who have difficulty accurately tapping the screen. There is a Basic Tap Tutor album that uses six images per page, and an Advanced Tap Tutor album with 12 pictures per page.

Then Moira Saucedo, whose son has been using TapToTalk for a few years, gave us an idea: why not combine the two albums into one? So we did just that. In fact, we did it two different ways, and we added both new albums to Designer's standard library.

Here is how we did it. The techniques we used show how you can use the Merge and Move functions in TapToTalk Designer in your own album design work.

Tap Tutor Combo 1
For the first new album, we wanted the first page to give a choice between Tap Tutor Basic and Tap Tutor Advanced. So we wanted booth albums to be at the same level (the first) of the new album outline.

Step 1: create a new album from the Tap Tutor Basic album in the standard album library's Learning category
Step 2: create another new album from the Tap Tutor Advanced album in the standard album library's Learning category
Step 3: merge the album created in step 2 into the album created in step 1 (here's how merge works)
Step 4: delete the album created in step 2 (we no longer need it)

The new album created in step 1 now has two pictures on the first page. One starts Tap Tutor Basic and the other starts Tap Tutor Advanced. You'll find this album in the Learning category of the standard album library. We call it Tap Tutor Combo 1.

Tap Tutor Combo 2
For this new album, we wanted the have Tap Tutor Advanced start as soon as Tap Tutor Basic finished. We wanted one continuous album. So we needed to move the top Tap Tutor Advanced picture after the last Tap Tutor Basic picture in the outline.

We repeated the steps for Tap Tutor Combo 1, above. Then we moved Tap Tutor Advanced to the end of  Tap Tutor Basic in the album outline. Here's how:

Step 5: In Album Outliner, click the starting picture for Tap Tutor Advanced (it's a race car) to highlight it
Step 6: Click the Move link at the top of the outline
Step 7: Click the last active picture in Tap Tutor Basic (it's a magic wand)

Poof! The whole outline for Tap Tutor Advanced is moved under the magic wand picture. Now, when you click the magic wand at the end of Tap Tutor Basic, Tap Tutor Advanced appears. You'll find this album in the Learning category of the standard album library. We call it Tap Tutor Combo 2.

Our thanks to Moira Saucedo for this great idea. The Merge and Move functions of Album Outliner can be very useful.

Tap Tutor: Fun Help for Tapping Problems

There are a variety of conditions that can cause a TapToTalk user to have difficulty tapping pictures accurately. This can be frustrating and limiting, not only for using TapToTalk but for using touch screens in general.

About a year ago, speech therapist Barbara Hallahan did a guest post for us entitled Helping a Child with Tapping Problems use AAC. She described TapToTalk albums she used to help train a child to tap more accurately. Her design for what she calls TapToTalk "warm up" albums makes improving tapping skills fun.

We took Barbara's ideas and created two new sample TapToTalk albums, Tap Tutor-Advanced and Tap-Tutor-Basic. You can try them using the TapToTalk Web App just by clicking the links.

You'll find these albums in TapToTalk Designer's Standard Album Library in the Learning category. You can add them to your TapToTalk, and customize them as you see fit.

Both Tap Tutor albums work similarly. You start with a screen with several blank pictures and one "correct" choice. The correct choice is a puppy that barks or kitten that meows, or another fun picture. Tapping the correct picture leads to another screen with another fun picture, but this time in a different position. This process continues for a few screens. When you reach the last screen, you hear a round of applause. Tap Tutor-Basic has six pictures per screen. Tap Tutor-Advanced has twelve pictures per screen.

Read Barabara Hallahan's post Helping a Child with Tapping Problems use AAC for more information about how she incorporated this idea into her therapy program for her client.

Giving his child a voice--after 40 years!

Joe Wiley is 82 years old. Here is his TapToTalk story:

My son, now age 50, stopped talking about age 10. Why is not known, but I can guess. He has Down Syndrome and an extra large tongue. The more speech therapy he had, the less he talked, finally stopping. My guess is that he was aware that he could not talk properly, so he quit. He can talk but just doesn't. He is smart enough that he caught on to TapToTalk on the iPad in less than a week.

I learned about using an iPad for helping mute children from the 60 Minutes TV show about Steve Jobs. The first 40 minutes was about Steve. The last 20 was about software on the iPad to help autistic people. I got excited about the possibilities. Even though he lives 1,000 miles from where I live, I took it on. A week's trip to Austin from Tennessee got things kicked off there, and he is progressing nicely.

This brilliant program is amazing in its extensiveness as to what it does to help the user create an application customized for a particular child regardless of age. The program has many hard copy tutorials in addition to several videos showing how to create and edit the albums that will eventually wind up on the child's device--iPod, iPad, and the like.

Features include an extensive icon and sound library, easy uploading of one's own photos to be used for icons, and talk from text or recording of your voice. My daughter-in-law, with my hints and suggestions, created a practice album and published it to an iPad in about two hours! All the icons were uploaded photos with her voice recordings. My son, at age 50, has not spoken for 40 years, instead communicating with body language and grunts. He began to use the album speech within a few days, having caught on quickly. The TapToTalk programs have been a marvel.

Thanks for sharing this with us, Joe. You've proven it is never too late to "give your child a voice."

Protect Your Kids with iPhone, iPad and iPod Settings

When kids use portable devices, it is especially important to put some fences around their activities. One way to do this is on Apple devices is with device settings. On your device's home screen, select the Settings App (the same app used to adjust TapToTalk settings), then tap General and Restrictions. Now you can choose what to allow and disallow.

Here are some of your choices:

Under Settings
Airplane Mode ON--disables Internet connectivity
Location Services OFF--no locations services

Under Allow
Safari OFF--no web browser
YouTube OFF--no YouTube
iTunes OFF--no iTunes
Ping OFF--no Ping
Installing Apps OFF--apps cannot be installed
Deleting Apps OFF--apps cannot be deleted

Under Allowed Content
Ratings For--content can be filtered by age ratings
In-App Purchases OFF--no in-app purchases can be made

Under Game Center
Multiplayer Games OFF--disables social gaming

These and other settings can be changed whenever you wish. So use these settings as needed to protect your child from accessing unwanted content, making purchases and so forth.

In the cloud? You mean it's up in the sky?

A cloud used to be something kids watched lying on their backs outdoors, making up stories about their shapes. Evan as little kids, we understood: clouds made rain. Shelly even wrote a beautiful poem about clouds.

But now we have (ta-da) The Cloud. This is one the hottest technology buzzwords of the decade. Even we at TapToTalk now use it. We say that TapToTalk Designer stores your AAC albums in the cloud, where your devices sync with them. But what exactly does that mean?

It means that the albums are stored on a server somewhere, and can be downloaded over the Internet.

So, you ask, what't the big deal, and why don't you just say that?

The big deal is that if something is in the cloud, you don't have to know where exactly it really is in order to access it. Our server can be anywhere in the world (want to guess what U.S. state it is in?). We can move it anywhere in the world. You don't need to know where it is, nor care if we move it. Through the magic of the Internet, that server is available to you wherever you are, as long as you can get online. As with all things webbish, you don't need to think about it, it is just there (as long as you don't lose your connection).

The use of the term cloud probably started because a cloud was (and still is) often used in diagrams to represent the Internet. The cloud in those diagrams stood for the collection of servers and routers and satellites and cables and radio towers and on and on that made up the Internet. It was hard to depict all that stuff in a simple diagram symbol. A cloud shape seemed to describe the Internet's indefinite, ever-changing form, and its use caught on.

So now when someone asks where your web-based stuff is, just smile, wave your hand vaguely towards the heavens, and say knowingly, "Oh, it's in the cloud."

New Sample Learning Albums

TapToTalk Designer's Standard Album Library contains a number of sample albums. If you wish, you can add any of these albums to your own TapToTalk, and then customize them as you see fit. Or just use them for ideas. We call these "starter albums" because they are meant to show how different albums can be designed and give you a start on your own individualized albums.

We just added ten new albums to the Learning category. TapToTalk Designer users can access them now in the Standard Album Library. And anyone can try them with the free TapToTalk Web App using the links below (the albums play the same regardless of the device used).

Here is information about eight of the new Learning albums (we'll discuss the other two—the Tap Tutor albums—in a later post).

ABCs try it
A "learn the alphabet" album. Since the English alphabet has 26 letters, this also shows how to handle a list of more than 12 items (the limit for one album page)

Simple Add try it
Learn how to add the numbers 1 through 9. Use this model to create other arithmetic learning pages.

Calendar try it
Learn the days of the week, months of the year and seasons. If you don;t live in the northern hemisphere, you'll want to re-arrange the pictures on the seasons pages.

Colors try it
Learn colors.

Count Them try it
Counting drills where you count familiar animals.

Count 1-10 try it
A basic counting exercise.

Shapes try it
Learn the names of 12 basic shapes.

Spell-Read try it
Illustrates one design approach.to building spelling and reading lists.

These albums also reinforce tapping and reading skills, and they're fun, too. Check them out!
