Open source "Boardmaker" for speech rehabilitation
Companies make a killing off of this software. We could make something for free, and in one weekend. Just need to have the ability to for therapists to add images and possibly use a text-to-speech library, so that when pressed the image title is audible.
Please. The people who run this company are horrible! They're a monopoly, their product is awful, and they can extract tons of money from you because autistic kids depend on it.

If this is on a mobile platform it might be nice to have the option to take photos and add them immediately to the image library. That way parents and educators can add images which the child recognizes from their own environment. Additionally, one could quickly record a sound to pair with that image.
Is this something that isn't already solved by a webpage and a screen reader like JAWS?
I'm also going to be doing text-to-speech using Tropo (API ref: https://tropo.com/docs/webapi/say.htm) I'll see if we can setup an early-morning demo on Saturday from Tropo on best practices to get this done.

Can you elaborate on exactly what this software does? It's not clear from the description or the web site. It looks like a paint program to me based on the tutorial video I found online.
