This is a tutorial for the SpeakColorsHD app. SpeakColorsHD uses colors and photos of objects to help children improve their speech and language skills. SpeakColorsHD is available for the iPad in the App Store. In this tutorial you will learn about the basic functionality of the app. A future tutorial will show how to customize.
Press on the large colored square or photo to hear a voice recording of the color or object. For example, when the large yellow square is pressed a voice recording will say “yellow”. When the photo of the flower is pressed, a voice recording will say “flower”.
At the bottom of the screen is a microphone to record your student practicing their speech.
To the right of the microphone is a button for playing back the student’s practice recording. Please note that the play button is hidden until a recording is made with the microphone.
Navigate to other photos by swiping left or right on the screen or by pressing the left or right arrow buttons.
SpeakColorsHD includes 9 sentence types to choose from. Press on the white button in the upper-left to reveal the choices. Press on a choice to select it.
7 Colors are included. Press the colored-squares along the top of the screen to work on sentences with that color.
