Who is it for?

Typeassist is an onscreen keyboard and is suitable for anyone with a disability who finds a Qwerty keyboard too difficult or too uncomfortable to use. It is based on a grid using 16 large onscreen cells to help users make accurate selections. We are sure you will enjoy this new and alternative way to type and communicate!

Typeassist provides speech output and is suitable for use as both a typing system and communication aid.

Typeassist is helpful for users with a limited range of movement in their arms and hands, they may have cerebral palsy, have suffered a stroke or have motor neurone disease, for example.It is suitable for adults and children.

The extensive dictionary, together with intelligent word prediction, means Typeassist is a great system for users who need to type and communicate quickly and comfortably.

Typeassist can be used with switches and also with eye tracking. Please contact one of our advisers at if you require further information on different access methods or for an assessment to find out the best access method for you.

How to use Typeassist

All the features of Typeassist can be accessed from within the Typeassist programme. We aim to provide a system that enables you to achieve truly independent typing and communicating.

Please download our ‘User Guide’ here!

Typeassist offers you a simple programme, designed to get you started with a range of features you can use to type and communicate quickly and effectively.

With Typeassist you will be able to type and ‘speak out’ your text, using the ‘voices’ already installed on your tablet or PC. It offers Assistive Control’s own word prediction for fast and efficient communication, and will ‘remember’ your most frequently used words to ensure the more you use it, the quicker you become.

Typeassist is versatile and can be used as a simple communication system or to produce all of your written documents. Simply use the text bar to ‘speak out’ your text.

Using only 16 very large cells means that even those with severely limited dexterity can use the touchscreen effectively. Also, a key feature is that the ‘Windows’ operating system is hidden, meaning that you will never have to encounter small icons or drop down menus that can be difficult to use. All the features of Typeassist, including volume control, can be operating using just 16 large onscreen cells.

Typeassist can also be used with simple switches and eye gaze.

Please contact us by phone or email to tell us if you are interested in using Typeassist with eye tracking. To speak to one of our advisers please call 01886 884188.

Getting started with Typeassist and Typeassist +

The Typeassist software has been designed and developed to be simple to use and ‘no instructions’ necessary software!  It has a useful ‘Help’ key which will guide you through all the features and offer simple ‘how to’ instructions.
However, here is how you start typing and speaking out your first sentence using Typeassist!
Let’s start with the sentence ‘This is a new way to type’
Please find and select the cell with the letter ‘t’.  You will see that Typeassist predicts the word ‘This’.  The word prediction has now brought up ‘is’ in its selection of 8 predictions. Once you select ‘is’ you will see that Typeassist has also gone on to predict ‘a’ and then ‘new’.  However, the system has not predicted ‘way’.  You will now need to select the cell with the letter ‘w’ and you will see ‘way’ has now appeared in the predictions.  You will now need to select the word ‘to’ from the predictions selection.
You will now see the sentence ‘This is a new way to’ in the text bar at the top of the screen.
The system hasn’t predicted ‘type’ so you will need to select the cell with the letter ‘t’ .  The word ‘type’ has not appeared in the selection of predictions so you will need to select the cell with the letter ‘t’ again.   You will notice it still hasn’t selected the word ‘type’ so you will now need to go to the cell with the letter ‘y’ and you will see that ‘type’ has now been predicted. Now please select the cell with the full stop to finish your sentence.  
You can speak out your message in two ways, either by simple touching the black text bar at the top of your screen or by selecting ‘controls’ and ‘speak’.
After a few practice sentences you will be able to create sentences quickly and easily!
