AI-based phrase prediction

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in augy enhances the user experience by providing a fast and efficient way to predict phrases. The AI-based phrase prediction system uses the user’s previous phrases to predict what they might want to say next. This feature makes it easier for users to find the words and phrases they need, reducing the time and effort required to communicate. The AI-based prediction system also adapts to the user’s communication style over time, making it even more accurate and relevant. Additionally, the AI-based prediction system can help users to expand their vocabulary and improve their communication skills.

Type what you want to say

In augy, we have included a feature that allows users to type what they want to say using their device’s keyboard. This feature provides users with an alternative way to communicate, especially for those who may have difficulty selecting phrases from a pre-defined list. Typing allows users to express themselves more freely and accurately, and gives them the ability to communicate thoughts and ideas that may not be covered by pre-defined phrases. The typed words can also be used to predict phrases or can be added as a custom phrase to be used again in the future. This feature gives users more autonomy and control over their communication and helps them to express themselves more effectively. The inclusion of the typing feature in augy makes it a versatile tool that can greatly benefit individuals with speech impairments.
