What's New in Version 4.3
Proloquo2Go 4.3 adds several exciting new features:
- Gateway to Language & Learning© core word vocabulary
- Fitzgerald Key and custom color coding
- Usability enhancements
Gateway to Language & Learning© core word vocabulary
Gateway to Language & Learning© is a popular core word vocabulary first developed in 1997 by Joan Bruno, Ph.D., CCC-SLP. Gateway for Proloquo2Go is the most comprehensive Gateway available, with 14 additional grids sizes and one new vocabulary set (Child Functional, for Autism Spectrum Disorders). You’ll also benefit from Proloquo2Go’s powerful access options and the ability to easily transition from one vocabulary set to the next without having to copy buttons between users. Gateway is available through an in-app purchase.
Fitzgerald Key and custom color coding
Proloquo2Go already offered automatic color coding of button borders and button backgrounds based on the modified Fitzgerald Key. Now you can additionally use the classic Fitzgerald Key or even define your own custom color coding scheme.
Several improvements have been made to the design and flow of the Startup Wizard. It is now easier to select your language and voice based on your region. Setting up two languages is even easier for bilingual users. A cleaner, more minimal design makes selecting an orientation and grid size more intuitive.
Version 4.3 also includes a few minor accessibility and voice quality fixes.
Need expandable text box
Proloquo2Go is invaluable to me, as I am a Disability Rights Advocate and Public Speaker and use your app to deliver my speeches.
The one comment I would like to suggest is to make the text box (the one where the user types in their message) expandable. I use a word processor app to type my speech, then I copy and paste it into Proloquo2Go.
The issue is once I listen to my speech (before I deliver it), should it need editing, I am forced to go back to the word processing app, edit it there, then copy and paste it once again in Proloquo2Go. I may repeat this process a few times, until I get my speech the way I want it.
If the said text box was expandable and vertically scrollable, as many text boxes are on websites, I could do my edits there instead of having to switch back and forth between apps. Depending on the length of my speech, I could possibly type the speech directly into Proloquo2Go.
I understand that the way that your app currently is, I could edit my speech directly if I used an external keyboard which has left and right arrow buttons, however I normally use an iPad to type my data, and an external keyboard is usually not available. An external keyboard is also an additional cost which many individuals with disabilities cannot afford, thus reworking your text box to make it expandable and vertically scrollable would be the solution to this issue.
P2G has helped my daughter continued to be movitated to communicate. With her limited verbal ability it has helped her to better explain what she is trying to say if we or others don't understand her. Tech support for P2G is also excellent! One helpful note about back-ups - do them and use DropBox!
Yes...it has vulgarities
My wife and I were floored to see the word a**hole! That's not the only degenerate word on the app either. As a parent with a child with a very rare syndrome we are really appreciative to start a journey with our 2 year old. How low has our society sank when an app for children who have developmental needs that are unique comes preloaded with a**hole. Enuff Said! I'm not rating it higher because....
