Touch the emoji and watch the avatar's face express happiness, sadness, and anger
Type a word: watch your pictures, line drawings, or toys come to life, as they speak in a happy, sad, or angry tone of voice.
Hear and see your photo avatar speak in Spanish, English, and Arabic -- helping you see and hear the relationships among pictures, symbols, speech, and writing.
Personalize your communication style: InnerVoice features different English dialects from around the world: U.S., U.K., and India.
EXPRESS -- InnerVoice allows you to make facial expressions on your avatar's face: take a photo and watch yourself express, happiness, sadness, or anger. InnerVoice
SPEAK -- see your words appear in the speech bubble: touch the avatar’s mouth or the speech bubble and listen to the avatar say your words aloud in Spanish, English, French, Japanese, Korean, or Arabic!
TYPE -- download a third-party translation keyboard, type in your language, watch your words become translated in the speech bubble: touch the avatar’s mouth or the speech bubble and listen to the avatar say your words in a different language!
PHOTOGRAPH -- take a picture and use the simple button-editing system to add a pre-recorded or text-to-speech label: touch the avatar’s mouth or the buttons; then watch and listen to the avatar label your pictures aloud.
SYMBOLIZE -- use the SmartySymbols and the simple button-editing system to add a pre-recorded or text-to-speech label to your favorite symbols: touch the avatar’s mouth or the buttons; then watch and listen to the avatar label your pictures aloud.
HANDWRITE -- download a third-party handwriting keyboard app; then watch your handwriting change into legible text in the speech bubble: touch the speech bubble and hear your handwriting converted to speech, as the avatar delivers your message!
PROMPT -- use InnerVoice’s Remote Prompting feature, which allows someone to send video-modeled prompts via Bluetooth: watch the avatar spontaneously give cues, as if your mirror reflection were speaking to you! (Stay tuned for Remote Prompting ideas on our website!)
LEARN -- InnerVoice will immerse you into a total communication environment where you can learn language through pictures, symbols, writing, or speech: whatever medium allows you to share your thoughts, feelings, wants, and needs.
CUSTOMIZE -- InnerVoice's avatars are customizable making InnerVoice perfect for every age, ability, and ethnicity. Use any picture, person, character, object or icon to create the perfect avatar to deliver your message. Adjust the eyes and mouth to create lifelike movements and speech, or, add a mouth when the perfect picture is tricky to get or just for fun.

What's new in Version 2.2
1) Added the slider to change voice rate -- slow down the avatar's speech rate so that it's easier to copy a word, phrase, or sentence.
2) Select emoji buttons to change avatar's facial expressions from neutral, happy, sad, or angry.
3) New emotional speech -- avatars can both look and sound happy, angry, or sad! Listen to your sentences spoken with an emotional tone of voice!
