SwiftKey has a new keyboard app: Symbol. It’s not a conventional QWERTY typer, but a visual-based system, aimed at non-verbal autistic people, and others with special needs.

And because it’s got SwiftKey’s AI built in, it’s unlike anything else that uses pictograms. It learns from the user, in a surprisingly deep way (or so says product manager Ryan Barnes—pictured).

It’s free and available now for Android.
