adapted was started to serve as a place where we could take care of ideas that did not fit into our day jobs. First and foremost we want to develop apps for youths with learning disabilities.
There is now a paradigm shift where you go from specially developed hardware / software to the more common products such as smartphones and tablets. There is already a lot out there but unfortunately it's mostly very static and downright ugly.
We want to use our backgrounds in advertising and IT providing smarter apps that adapts to the individual and not the other way round.
About a picture - a speech therapy app
When Daniel's son Olle (with diagnosis Fragile-X) needed speech therapy, we received among several tools a talking photo album. The album served as so that, for each image we could record a description. When Olle flipped through the album, he would train his speech by describing the image, with the support of our recording. As Olle's speech developed, the more details we could put in describing the picture.
This was a great tool for Olle but unfortunately we were poor at introducing new pictures, remember to practice and also Olle thought the album was a bit analog. As we saw how Olle used Daniel's iPhone, this idea was born.
The target audience for the app is everyone that need to train their speech, both in pronunciation and sentence length. We also believe that the app can be used for social stories, perhaps even serve as a simple image map.
"A simple and personal tool for language development of the younger, based on images that are important to the user. The jury sees potential for a several areas of use with images in focus."
