Welcome to Minspeak
Minspeak is a way of representing language in a communication device.
If you show people a picture of something simple, like an apple, they will naturally associate more than one idea with that picture. People usually say the most obvious idea first – “apple” – but then they start associating more ideas – “fruit,” “red,” “eat,” “bite,” and “hungry.” Minspeak takes advantage of this natural tendency by using a small set of pictures to represent a large number of words in a communication device.
Minspeak is an effective and efficient language representation method that promotes independent communication.
With a small number of pictures – called icons – the person using Minspeak can independently communicate a large vocabulary without having to spell or to learn and navigate through a large set of pictures.
Read how Minspeak allows for independent communication, by giving anyone easy access to core vocabulary.
