I have Aphasia app- NHS recommended.
The "I have Aphasia" app is designed to be used on your iPhone, iPod or iPad so you can inform people you meet about aphasia. It opens a short animated film explaining Aphasia, which was produced by Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust with the Tap and Talk Aphasia iPad Group at the University of Dundee. The video is one and a half minutes long, short enough to show it and set the scene before a conversation. You have the choice of a male or a female voice to speak the movie text, you can stop the movie at any time, and you can share it using the controls within the app. All stop motion animations in the movie were created by the Tap and Talk Aphasia iPad Group during animation workshops. We hope this app will help you when you introduce yourself to people who don't know you and know little or nothing about aphasia. Please send us feedback and ideas using the feedback function of the app.
Our NHS health app review:
Pros - Informative and useful app to help explain Aphasia to your friends and family. Great explanation of what Aphasia is. Really useful feature that you can email the video from the app.
This app for patients with Aphasia is loved by our users and our Speech and Language Therapists.
Cons - Not available in other accents or languages. Limited to patients who still have some functional communication. Still awaiting android version.
