The first communication app which both speaks and listens!
Conventional communication tools assume problems in communication to stem from the person with communication difficulties. Alela on the other hand views communication as a collaboration between people. It has a listening function which understands communication partners by translating spoken language into images. This way the person with communication difficulties gets assistance to understand questions and give appropriate responses.

"Alela is an AAC app which anticipates your needs. This excites us. The listening function translates spoken language into images. This supports modeling which is so important for a successful communication. Many other adjustable features are well designed and customizable. We love the fact Alela is not only focussing on the person using AAC but also on the conversation partners."
