App Description

KType Free is an assistive communication app for individuals who cannot verbally communicate with ease or speed. KType is built to assist users who find it difficult to control or see keyboard, mouse, or LCD. KType Free uses the CMU/Flite text-to-speech library to talk in real-time as the user types. For realistic, natural human voice, check out KType Pro:

The KType app accepts user input via the touchscreen or bluetooth keyboard, speaks in male and female voices, and instantly guesses what the user is trying to type, minimizing the need to spell out each word.

KType can be easily configured to assist individuals with stroke, ALS, muscle spasms, motor tics, and partial paralysis, as well as those who have trouble reading, writing, and spelling.

PLEASE NOTE: To get out of the full-screen keyboard view, touch all four corners of the iPad screen at the same time. Make sure you touch the visible part of the screen and not the black border.

If you have any questions about using or setting up KType, please contact me directly via the Support page on the KType website.
