Digital life made easy

How it works
Join-In creates an “AAC Optimized” flow that links your AAC solution to the app you are using. This flow enables you to perform both simple and complex actions by selecting a button on your AAC app using your preferred access method. By selecting AAC buttons you can
- Create a post on Facebook
- Respond to a message in WhatsApp
- Read aloud a paragraph in a news article on MSN
- Create a new playlist in Spotify
- Choose a subtitle language in Netflix
Moreover, the AAC Optimized flow reduces the number of selections required for each action, and exposes features that are not supported by the regular use of Apps like
- Increasing the font size of messages in WhatsApp
- Automatically reading movie descriptions in Netflix
- Controlling the size of search results in YouTube
- Smart-scrolling through content
Join-In is designed for applications that are dynamic in nature and that undergo occasional changes and updates. Join-In uses innovative technology to ensure that the user experience is not negatively impacted by these changes by
- Maintaining a consistent user-experience even if the application is updated or altered
- Enabling quick recovery in instances where changes in an application affect the AAC flow. As some important components of Join-In are cloud-based, the recovery process is usually transparent to the user. From the users’ perspective, everything happens in the background, without requiring their involvement
