The one-year-old Jellow Communicator is a friendly, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) solution that uses icons to aid communication in people with learning and speech difficulties. The user-friendly interface and icons of Jellow enable beginners to adapt to the communication tool. By utilising Visual Emotional Language Protocol (VELP) that comprises of 6 expressive side buttons i.e. ‘like’, ‘don’t like’, ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘more’ and ‘less’, Jellow provides 9 categories that assemble daily activities through expressive icons. Children with developmental disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder or Intellectual Disability, frequently have speech difficulties and Jellow allows children to communicate easily, feel empowered and enhance personal development.
