There is a discussion on this subject at

It would be worth chiming in on.

Typically these systems cost in the thousands but with my new software "My Pad Speaks" and a $499 iPad a user can have a system for under $600 bucks. Now that is a great mix of technology and innovation. My application has space for up to 10,000 words in an easy to use and easy to learn interface. I have included themes of both backgrounds and buttons for end users to customize the system to their personality. This is a fun application with a serious side.
