Publisher's description - Proloquo2Go 2.1
Proloquo2Go provides a full-featured augmentative and alternative communication solution for people who have difficulty speaking. It provides natural sounding text-to-speech voices (INITIALLY AMERICAN AND BRITISH ENGLISH ONLY), up-to-date symbols, powerful automatic conjugations, a default vocabulary of over 7000 items, full expandability and extreme ease of use.
Proloquo2Go is for anyone who cannot afford spending thousands of dollars on an AAC device and yet wants a solution that is just as good if not better. SLPs, teachers and parents recommend it for children and adults with autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, developmental disabilities, apraxia, ALS, stroke or traumatic brain injury.
"The price is so compelling," said Dan Herlihy, owner of Connective Technology Solutions, "and the software and hardware platform Proloquo2Go runs on so radically improved over current devices in its category that if not quite a paradigm shift, markedly raises the bar for accessibility, ease of use, and affordability."
INCLUDED VOICES: The current version includes North American English male, female, girl and boy voices. These can be swapped at no costs for British voices that can be downloaded through WiFi by Proloquo2Go. Support for other languages and voices is in the pipeline.
We absolutely love this app and would be lost without it! The customer service is wonderful. They are quick to respond and provide clear, easy to understand instructions. If you get this app and have any questions definitely contact them and they will take care of you well!!! I also love that the developers really listen to the suggestions and concerns of users and parents. I love that the app is so customizable!!! You can make it as simple or complex as you need to fit the user. We started out with just 4 or 6 "buttons", then we started adding folders. We now have multiple folders and our son can easily navigate and tell us his wants/needs and feelings. Just last night he was struggling during dinner out. He wanted to go outside but we weren`t done eating. I was able to add a folder on the spot and add "buttons" to say first we eat then we go outside. Every time he wanted to go out I was able to visually show him it wasn`t time yet. In no time he was "saying" first we eat then we go outside. And thanks to proloquo2go our son was able to say I love you well before he could attempt to say the words!!! It was a wonderful moment!!!! He uses the app not only to communicate, but also as a way to explore language, letters and numbers. We have folders for letters, numbers, transportation and music (all are things he loves) specifically to let him learn. Since he began using this app, he has tremendously increased the number of words and speech sounds he can say! This app is worth every single penny!!!! If you get this app and have any trouble, do NOT give up - Customer Support can walk you through any issue you might have. It will be well worth it in the end! Oh, and I love love love the new child voices!!!!

We love proloquo2go.....we love the new American children`s voices they just added with this update my son sounds like a kid now. We still love all the features that came with 2.0 update the Page buttons have made it easier for him to use and being able to color buttons different has helped him due to his visual impairment. Thank you for giving my a voice!
This app is wonderful! They have so much support I can`t imagine having a hard time using it. Just like with any technology, they update it to make it better! There are webinars that are extremely helpful and Facebook support groups. This app gave my non-verbal son a voice! I have used other voice apps and found none as versatile and easy to use as this one. The customer support is always on top of their emails. If you compare the price to the prices of many voice boxes that can range in the 1000s, it`s a steal! My son uses this program every day and was able to pick up on it quickly. I love the fact that we can put it on his iPod touch as well and he can keep it in his pocket. I can`t say enough good things about this program.
