Navi = Augmented Communication Device for Children With Autism

everything you see that is text, will be replaced by a image with a word and a icon,

the whole thing will use colors that are intresting and high contrast,

**I don’t think I need help with coding, but I may need help with Icons at some point **

Tomorrow night I hope to be building strings from icons, and then the next night
having a voice read them, when you click play.

what a great idea. may i ask if you got a member of your family with autism. you don´t have to answer, if you feel uncomfortable about it. do you have any contact to psychologists specialised in autism?

Yup. A great idea BPR. I like you because you really like to help people in need! Will follow this project and i hope i see it finished :wink:

Take care.

How will this help children with autism?

Pecs Icons system,

clicking a icon will add the word the icon represents to a string,

press ‘talk’ will read the string,

basically it turns visual communication into audible words.

proloqo to go costs quite a bit to do the same thing.

My system in action

next is getting it to read it with Text To Speech, then I will need to get a database of icons downloaded from somewhere or
start making my own.

edit: currently stuck on trying to get pyTTSx to run inside py 3.5.1

Hey found a fork of pyttx that has been ported over to python 3.xx
HERE

Dont know if will help but that fork I was talking about has drivers for it… are they inside of it…I dont know but it might work… Ill look into it

EDIT:
Look likes the drivers are included and will be found if put into blender…

it grabs local stuff in init()
it’s different for each os*

win32com
win32api
etc

do you mean change my install path to blender lib?
in pip somehow?
