Abstract: This work focuses entirely on accessibility for people with neuromuscular diseases that can't be expressed orally with other people and especially with their family. For this reason, the way in which end users will interact (human-computer interaction) will be a vital part of this application. Analyzing the possibilities of how people with this type of disease can communicate (can not speak correctly, but can use tactile devices in a more or less fluid way), it has been decided to create a modular application where the first module will be a communicator with a graphical interface that's very easy to use, intuitive and using pictograms with locutions they can express actions, feelings or needs. These expressions will be made by converting pictograms to audio locutions. The user will only have to select the pictograms that describe the information that he wants to transmit and later he will reproduce the audio by pressing a button. Finally, the user can delete the last pictogram added or all at once to start over again. This application will be developed for Android operating system and since it's focused on a very special type of user, it has been decided that it will be completely free (Google PlayStore) and open source. With this decision, the application is left open for continuous improvement by other developers, according to the CreativeCommons attribution license and will thus have a wider range of users and in a much more economical way.
