Cboard - AAC Communication Board for the Browser

Cboard is an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) web application, allowing users with speech and language impairments (autism, cerebral palsy) to communicate by symbols and text-to-speech.

The app uses the browser's Speech Synthesis API to generate speech when a symbol is clicked, there are 3400 symbols to choose from when creating a board. Cboard is available in 33 languages (support varies by platform - Android, iOS, Windows).

The app supports 33 languages. Languages were machine translated, as far as I'm aware, they are mostly correct but require proofreading, if you want to help proofread click this link: - you do not need to be a programmer to do this!

npm start or yarn start

Runs the app in development mode.
Open http://localhost:3000 to view it in the browser.

The page will reload if you make edits.
You will see the build errors and lint warnings in the console.

npm test or yarn test

Runs the test watcher in an interactive mode.
By default, runs tests related to files changed since the last commit.

Read more about testing.

npm run build or yarn build

Builds the app for production to the build folder.
It correctly bundles React in production mode and optimizes the build for the best performance.

The build is minified and the filenames include the hashes.
By default, it also includes a service worker so that Cboard loads from local cache on future visits.

Cboard is ready to be deployed.
