CoughDrop is an open, flexible communication app for people with complex communication needs. AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) apps have been around for over a decade, but there's still a lot of room for improvement when it comes to user interaction, flexibility and openness. CoughDrop is an effort to create an AAC app that can grow and expand with the user, make it easier to provide meaningful supports, and provide useful insights, all in a clean, cross-platform package.
CoughDrop is built to run on all major devices, including desktop computers and laptops, iPads and iPhones, and Android tablets and phones. The interface stays as consistent as possible across devices so that users can swap out devices with minimal interruption or confusion. CoughDrop is built on modern web standards and offers an open API and integration points to try to work with as many existing systems as possible.
