:prose is the world’s most intuitive mobile (AAC) app that let’s you speak using body language instead of visual symbols. Starting with simple finger taps and swipes in the Canvas area, you can speak your own phrases out loud and communicate with others.

:prose is being used by the largest school system in the United States and provides an entirely new “inclusive learning” experience and accelerate “access to literacy” for nonverbal or communication challenged students.

“:prose is so intuitive, that it allows students opportunities to communicate with less effort.”
