Scene & Heard Pro is a visual scene display AAC app. At its core it allows you to create visual scenes and video visual scenes quicker than ever before with either voice recordings or synthesised speech. You can add hotspots that play audio and videos, link to other scenes or activate Transition To Literacy features.

Visual scene displays are when you use a  photo, picture or video to communicate a message. This often depicts a familiar image or scene, and the user can touch hotspots or specific parts of the scene to communicate pre- programmed messages.

Create visual scenes

Using just-in-time programming, take a photo and add hotspots to make a visual scene. This approach to AAC uses personal images to support communication and independence by providing opportunities to access vocabulary for activities and conversation. Visual scene displays offer a valuable way for communication to be supported across the lifespan. The scenes can be created in ANY language!

Make video visual scenes

Splice videos with visual scenes to help support access to vocabulary within a dynamic context. Simply take a video of the activity and then tap to add scenes where you want to add a still scene with language to use.  Perfect for working on promoting independence in activities!
