Description

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.

A lovely app to help explain to people with aphasia and their partners/friends/relatives what aphasia is.

This is a great very simple app that can help you to introduce yourself and aphasia to a new communication partner. It shows a short animation created by people with aphasia, explaining what aphasia is all about and what you can do as a communication partner to improve a conversation. The aphasia group at Dundee University is currently working on an update to add different languages and accents as well as making the app available on Android devices.
