The ICT-AAC Writing ("ICT-AAC Pisalica" in Croatian) application is now available, developed for Android and iOS operating systems as well as for web browsers.
The application makes it easy to learn how to properly write capital letters (graphemes) which is not sufficiently represented in available applications. Children of preschool age often try to write letters according to the examples they see in their environment (for example, from picture books, newspapers, jumbo posters). They often remember the wrong orientation of the letter (known as mirror writing) or the wrong writing direction. Such writing taught in a wrong way is then often difficult to correct. This application is the first application intended for learning of Croatian graphemes.
The ICT-AAC Language Builder ("ICT-AAC Jezična gradilica" in Croatian) application is now available, developed for Android and iOS operating systems as well as for web browsers.
The application is specifically designed to encourage morphological development of preschool children. It is suitable for children with typical language skills, and certainly for children with language development difficulties. The application enables better understanding of grammatical morphemes for plural of nouns and verbs in a visually appealing and entertaining way. The advantage of the application is its ability to use it in different contexts (e.g. preschool facilities and family environment).
The ICT-AAC What Time Is It ("ICT-AAC Koliko je sati" in Croatian) application is now available, developed for Android and iOS operating systems as well as for web browsers.

Also, the purpose of the application is to enhance the connection of the number and quantity as well as it improves the understanding of sequence of events in time.

After release of Communicator application designed for Apple devices in January 2013, more and more users were demanding similar application that would target Android devices. Croatian IT company CROZ recognized the demand, developed the application and donated it to the AAC community. Maintenance operations and user support will be handled by project FER team. Once again, we thank CROZ for their effort while the application can be downloaded here.
ICT-AAC Communicator allows people with complex communication needs easier communication with the environment.
