People with communication-based disorders, such as autism or down syndrome, can have a very difficult time living a normal daily life.

Even when other people around them are trying to help them, these people don’t often know what they really want.

Therefore, other people can’t always give them the help that they need.

Sometimes, it can be helpful for these people to learn sign language, but not everyone can understand sign language.


However, evolving technology has been able to help people with communication-based disorders go about their daily lives.

One such example is Avaz, a mobile application that allows people with disorders such as autism, down syndrome, and cerebral palsy to communicate through pictures and text.

Avaz first came out in 2011, and it has received various tweaks and improvements ever since.

It allows people with communication-based disorders to communicate through images and texts. The app even has a real voice that can talk for its users.

People can use it for any day-to-day activity, such as going places, requesting food, and physical activities like swimming, cycling, and horse riding.

Avaz also works across various languages, such as English, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, and Marathi.

It allows people to create folders with pictures. With this, people can create categories like adjectives, prepositions, and verbs.

Avaz can be used to teach several things to people with communication-based disorders, such as number concepts, preposition concepts, and typing.

The voice communication also helps to stimulate speech. It reduces the anxiety often felt by these people, since they can express their feelings clearly.

Avaz can help parents figure out their children, such as what foods they like, what calms them down, and what their strengths are.

Thanks to Avaz, people with communication-based disorders can communicate with other people more clearly and easily, and thus, they can successfully go about their daily lives.
