TouchChat Lite is a non-communicative configuration of TouchChat HD that allows for the user interface experience but does not include speech synthesis or any type of audio playback capabilities. TouchChat Lite does not include the ability to transfer page sets to other devices. TouchChat Lite gives an individual the ability to navigate through page sets. Page sets are linked pages, each of which is divided into a number of buttons. The buttons are programmed to have specific actions. For example, buttons may be programmed to navigate to a different page, change the volume, clear the display, etc. page sets that are included with TouchChat Lite: VocabPC, MultiChat-15, my QuickChats, Spelling, Wordpower, Wordpower with Phrases, iEssense, Pixon, Gateway and Talkabout. Each page set targets individuals with different communication needs. The pages, grid layout, buttons, messages, and symbols are fully customizable. You can modify the provided page sets or create your own. Select from over 30 button actions when creating new buttons. Over 10,000 Symbolstix symbols are included for customizing buttons. You can also use your own images or take photos with the built-in camera. Gestures can also be used to navigate to new pages, etc. TouchChat HD Lite does not include the ability to transfer page sets to other devices.

    These are just example buttons that do not produce speech sounds. It’s what I’d expect to see for free, not pay $10 for. Waste of money. 😣

    This app is completely nonfunctional. The speech therapist nor I saw the notation that there is no speech synthesis with the lite versions. We thought the vocabulary would be limited but that we could introduce my son to this version while waiting on the funding to process for the full version. Exactly what is the point of the lite versions? You can see the program in action online, so it befuddles me why the developer offers these versions.

    I got this app to trial it with a client to rate response prior to recommending a family to purchase. I thought it would have limited capabilities, but the app produces no speech output, which makes it completely non functional.
  • Not worth it

    This "lite" app was useless in my practice and for my clients. Lots of icons but no speech output. Not useful for functional communication. The fact that there is no output is not made clear prior to purchase.
  • Know what you are paying for

    Though I would have preferred voice output, I knew what I was buying. The first sentence of the description says it is "non-communicative" and also says there is no speech synthesis. Perhaps the description was different when others bought it, but you need to be very careful when purchasing apps.

    I beg to differ with the other review. The point of reviewing an app is to see if the language features will match your users needs. If you need to see if voice output is helpful, you can download many free apps for the user to see the benefits of voice output. I personally appreciate that I can see all of the vocabulary options that are available, while other Lite versions only give me limited information.

    Almost all "lite" communication apps have speech output. What is the point of getting a lite version only to see the layout?? When trialing devices with students, I need to be able to actually TRIAL the app. How will I or the student know if the app is appropriate for what is needed if the most important part of the app doesn't work. No sound, no voice for the student. I am SO disappointed. The full app is well over $200 dollars and you have to pay that money on blind faith that the app will work as needed. I prefer Proloquo2go, also expensive, but you are able to trial the lite version before buying the full version for under $200. So mad I downloaded this app!

    This app is a great diagnostic and training tool for the TouchChat program. It provides access to all of the wonderful Vocabulary sets in the full TouchChat program. Well worth the money. Sure, it would be great to have the full program with voice output for trials but when that's not possible, this is a great alternative.

    There is no vocal output!!! I bought this to use with my students for AAC in the school. Very upset there is no voice, a waste of money.
