A picture paints a thousand words.
Pictures can make text easier to understand.
Picture Communication Symbols (PCS) are used
by people who need help communicating, where signing,
speaking or writing isn’t the best option.
Symbols are often used on their own.
Technology helps us combine symbols with sound.
Combining symbols with sound buttons
can be a good way to communicate.
Bunny the Dog has learnt to communicate this way!
Bunny (a Tik Tok star), is famous for talking to
her owners via a board of buttons recorded with words.
Bunny’s board is a version of
Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).

Bunny’s technology is how some
communication apps work for people.
There are hundreds of apps available
on Google Play and the Apple App Store.
Some apps use symbols,
some use photos and some use text.
It can be difficult to choose
the best AAC app for you.
CALL Scotland have a clickable diagram that
can help you choose the best app for you.
