Why I created my own AAC app

My name is Owen McGirr, and I am the founder of EnabO. I was born with Cerebral Palsy and I have very limited speech and motor functions. But I don’t let this stop me from doing what I want to do. I have a beautiful fiancée and baby boy who are my world.

A major factor in my life is the ability to communicate effectively. That is why I created my own AAC app, SayIt!. It is primarily text based because that is what I grew up using. I did try symbol based AAC but I was too advanced for it. I created the solution that I required, which was an app for iOS with a powerful word prediction system. While some apps like this already existed, I felt like I could create a better system. So I did.

I feel like creating this app got me to where I am today. The ability to communicate is essential to everybody.
