What is the difference between LAMP Words For Life and a PRC/Liberator communication device?

A common question people ask is, “Why would I buy a communication device?” Here are the main reasons:

  LAMP Words for Life on iPad App LAMP Vocabulary on PRC Communication Devices
Portability Yes Yes
Direct access Yes Yes
Alternative access methods (i.e. scanning, auditory prompts, head pointing, eye-gaze) No Yes
Computer keyboard and mouse emulation No Yes
Direct interface with other programs for word processing and academics No Yes
Durable No. Commercially available protective casing required for most users Yes
Warranty for accidental damage Available for additional fee through Apple and third party insurers Yes (Included with purchase of device)
Ability to limit access to games and videos Coming with iOS 6 but a setting that can be turned off Yes
Infrared environmental controls No-There are apps that communicate with a local IR unit through WiFi but the iPad must be near the IR unit limiting universal access. Yes

My child has severe motor impairments. Can they use the LAMP app?

A student who is able to isolate a finger and accurately touch .5”×.5” keys may be a candidate for the LAMP app. If the child has motor impairments that prevent them from accessing a screen directly or needs to use switches or eye gaze to make selections, they may better benefit from a Liberator communication device.

How will other apps affect my child’s use of his/her communication app?

Consumer tablet computers have a wide variety of functions and features. Some children may easily switch between email, web browsing and word processing applications and their communication software. Other children may prefer to engage in game play and watch videos on their tablet and react negatively to their communication software if they are being asked to discontinue fun activities. It may be helpful to disable video and game features.

Can I use my AAC app to create text that I can use in other application such a Word document or academic software?

Yes, but not directly. Currently, Apple apps do not have the ability to interface and function together. You have the ability to copy the text in the text box then paste that into another application. This limits the device user to copying just a couple lines of text at a time. If the AAC user needs the ability to create text using their AAC software while working within other programs, then a PRC/Liberator communication device is a better option.

Can I use my AAC app to talk while making phone calls or using Skype?

Yes, but you can only make a voice call. You must first use your Skype app to make the call and then switch to your AAC app. Then you can generate messages that your call partner will hear. You will also hear them from your iPad speakers. You cannot use Skype’s IM using your Words For Life app as the input, nor can you use video.
