Introduction and First Version

We would like to introduce our first version of the talker app for Android tablets. The talker apps helps people with speech disorder to communicate in basic sentences. It allows users to tap on a pictogram on their tablet and let the tablet speak out the associated word.
There are plenty of different free and commercial version for the desktop but I could not find anything for Android tablets.

The app is based on the Plaphoons application for PCs that was developed by the Fressa project.  The Android application is based on the Java version of Plaphoons and optimized for tablets.

For the first version, we would like to add automatic import of the Plaphoons tableaus. While the text-to-speech information are easily imported the image formats of the pictograms have to be compatible with the used tablet.


As the current version contains personal pictures the source code is not yet published. Please stay tuned and contact us if you would like to hear more.

We are aiming for the Smart Accessibility Awards by Vodafone and appreciate any feedback that helps to improve the usability and accessibility. For details please see http://developer.vodafone.com/smartaccess2011

  1. Great initiative, thanks!

    I started translating the JavaPlaphoons GUI to English (and Swedish) over a year ago, but never found the time to finish it off. Have you made any translation?
    Another question: From the video I can't see any message line in the Android version - can you have one?

    Cheers, / Mats Lundälv

  2. Hi Mats,
    at the moment there is no message line - not sure yet how to make it best usable.

  3. Hi Friedger,
    To start with, I would suggest
    - a plain message line collecting the selected and spoken symbols + text
    - a delete last symbol and a clear message command (button at the right-hand end of the message line - long press for Clear).
    - Speaking the message line when it is tapped.
    Btw: I have just added Plaphoons - including info on your Android version to www.oatsoft.org.
    Cheers, /Mats
