- Especially Designed for Children
Jellow Basic is conceived and designed exclusively for children or early learners. The graphic icons and the phrases in simple language are specially designed to be child-friendly.
Jellow Basic has a collection of over 1200 graphic icons specially designed in-house to be child-friendly and which are easy to understand. In addition to this, Jellow Basic has a vocabulary of over 10,000 pre-made sentences addressing the child's needs. These sentences cover most of the communication requirements of the child. These pre-made sentences make it easy for a child who cannot form accurate sentences, to communicate.
The easy-to-learn interface and visually appealing icons of Jellow Basic make it is an ideal solution for beginner-level communicators. Jellow is simple, intuitive and easy to use.
Jellow is based on an extremely simple interface to create speech. By clicking the LEARN button and then the buttons on the left you can create these sentences: I like to learn, I want to learn, I want to learn some more and using the buttons on the right: I don’t like to learn, I don’t want to learn, I want to learn less. It uses 1200 icons to generate 10,000 premade sentences all created inhouse.

Using these core buttons along with the central category buttons, the child can very easily communicate his/her likes, dislikes, and needs with others.

Jellow Basic’s user-friendly interface along with its graphic icons and vocabulary was designed iteratively across a period of several years based on constant feedback from parents, speech therapists, teachers and children.
