How is Fat Cat Snappy Chat helping others?

Fat Cat Snappy Chat helps some people to speak who otherwise could not.

We research and develop assistive technology for people with disabilities. Some of these disabilities include vision limitations, mobility limitations, and hand motor control limitations.

The assistive technology that we are currently developing is communication software for people who cannot speak, who have difficulty speaking, or who have multiple disabilities that make using computers and communication software difficult. (See our assistive technology webpage.) Fat Cat Snappy Chat is an off-shoot of our research into helping people with these disabilities engage in face-to-face and electronic conversations.

Fat Cat Snappy Chat is real assistive technology, but of limited scope. It is designed to be fun and entertaining for a wide audience -- with or without disabilities. We are developing a more general, editable version of this software. However, some folks with disabilities can enjoy Fat Cat Snappy Chat just as it is.


But how does my purchase of Fat Cat Snappy Chat help people?

When you purchase Fat Cat Snappy Chat for it's entertainment value, you help keep the price low for people who need it to speak.

Assistive technology software is often very expensive, because the market for this type of assistive technology is very limited. However, if you buy this app just 'cause it's fun, you bring down the cost for those who need it.
