The Mind Express communication software was designed for people with communication challenges, caregivers, speech and language pathologists and teachers. With Mind Express, you can communicate at the existing language level, but it also stimulates further language development. Depending on the needs and the (communication) device Mind Express has been installed on, the possibilities are a lot more extensive than face-to-face communication and games. Just think of sending/receiving text messages, calling, emailing, social media (WhatsApp, Skype, Messenger, etc.) or even connecting to devices (home automation applications) such as turning on the television, opening the door, switching on the lights, etc.
Communication starts with your narrative. Creating communication boards and personalizing them is quite a job. It takes up a lot of time and often the card remains rather limited. This may keep you communicating at the same language level. By offering a higher language level, language development can be stimulated even more. Mind Express not only wants to provide support, but also provide the tools to stimulate progress.
Speech therapists and universities are already conducting a great deal of research in the field of language development. Through close collaboration, Jabbla is uniquely positioned to digitally shape the latest ground-breaking strategies into ready-to-use Mind Express page sets such as Amego, PODD and SCORE.
You select cells that contain images and symbols, which the program then uses to build words and sentences. In addition to this visual communication with icons, there is also the option of written communication using a digital keyboard. Or you can combine both types of communication.
Apart from the fact that Mind Express is a complete and comprehensive package, its greatest asset is its user-friendliness. You can personalize it to find everything around you: friends, family, favorite restaurant, etc. Add your own personal drawings, photos and new symbols or have your friends, family or companions say something.
You can also find a large number of ready-to-use communication page sets and exercises on www.mind-express.com. You can use an existing file, modify it or create one yourself.
The new version, Mind Express 4, is even more user-friendly and quicker to use! The menus and options have been extensively changed: programming is simplified, intuitive and faster. Moreover, Mind Express 4 is packed with new features: multimedia, calendars, agendas, dynamic lists, freestyle pages and more.
Mind Express 4 is dynamic and geared to the life of its users. With Mind Express 4, it is faster and easier than ever before to create cells and vocabularies, develop an exercise or create an original therapy game.
Language immersion - Mind Express 4 automatically conjugates verbs. This unique feature ensures a grammatically correct language immersion, helping stimulate language development.
Customized controls - In Mind Express 4, you can communicate by selecting different cells. Use the touchscreen, mouse, joystick, one, two or even more switches or head or eye tracking. Mind Express 4 is fully fitted with every control option and user preferences.
Ease of use-Mind Express 4 makes it easy to write sentences and messages using symbols and/or text. These can be read out loud, saved and printed. The communication speed is increased by using word and sentence predictions, whether or not accompanied by a suitable symbol. This means fewer keystrokes, less typing and faster writing.
Another handy tool is the option to set the acceptance and post selection time of the keystroke. Accidental or superfluous keystrokes are thus ignored.
Dynamic - Dynamic lists and pages allow you to build up a logical personal communication board. A dynamic list enables vocabulary to be arranged comprehensively and clearly. You can integrate a “read more” button, as it were, per category (e.g. fruit). You can then include all relevant words per category (such as apple, pear, mango...). There is no need to create extra pages or an unnecessarily complicated structure. You can also create your own animations and even use animated GIFs in your communication boards.
Home automation - Mind Express 4 revolves around independence. An important pillar in this is the ability to control devices in your environment, i.e. home automation. With Mind Express you can switch lights on and off, turn on the television, adjust the radio’s volume, open doors and so on.
Amego offers the best of both worlds for language proficient users. On the one hand, Amego includes a virtual keyboard for personal communication; on the other hand, it can contain all your favorite apps such as WhatsApp, Spotify, Skype and Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Amego is ideal to use if you want to combine all facets of a computer with written communication. Amego is a free page set in Mind Express 4.
