This month I have been slow with blogging, and I appreciate your understanding as I take some time to myself. I am back this evening with a great app review and giveaway!
Speech Journal is an app from Mobile Education Store. I'm a huge fan of all of Kyle's apps, and this one is no exception. This app is easy to use on the iPad and it allows SLPs to make customized versions of any speech and language activity.
When you first open the app, you are instructed to choose a student. For demo purposes I put myself in. You can also find the video tutorial here which is great if you are new to the app.
Once you make a profile or select a student's profile, you can choose an image from your library or your camera roll. Take a look at the image I selected below:
Then you record! This is great for articulation practice, creating sentences using proper syntax, narratives, or even language samples.
Need to change the photo? No problem!
Simply click "choose image" and change the photo. You can select to add the image to the same recording (good for articulation practice) or to create a new recording.
Once you are finished recording, your screen will look like this:
From here you can continue recording, save your recording, erase and re-record your recording, play the current recording, or choose a new image. Once all of your recordings are finished, you can play them one after the other. All of the recordings are saved in each user's profile under archive.
This app is so great and so versatile. I really can't think of any other way that this app could be improved.
I love this app, and I know so many ways that I will be able to use this app with my preschoolers!
You can find Speech Journal at the iTunes Store for $1.99. This app is compatible with the iPad and requires iOS 5.1 or later. Make sure that your iPad software is updated!
