This update introduces the first genuine Dutch Text to Speech voices for children, Merel and Thijs. We spent nearly a year creating these voices in collaboration with Acapela Group and NSGK, and we’re very happy to be able to offer young Dutch AAC users voices which they can identify with.
As part of this release, we've had to remove the feature to post directly from Proloquo4Text to Facebook. This is due to new security features introduced by Facebook. However, you can still copy text prepared in Proloquo4Text and paste it into Facebook.
Version 3.5 also includes some bug fixes and resolves a prediction issue
Thanks again for using our app.

A neurological disease has taken my speech. Thanks to the speech people at Johns Hopkins, I discovered the power of Proloquo4Text. I type. It speaks. It helps me feel whole.

The right app
I've been searching for the perfect "text to speech" app for my non verbal teenager with Autism ever since we got our first iPad. I was tempted for so long by Proloquo2Go - but my child's strength is text based communication - the interest for picture communication just isn't there. This app checked all the boxes of "must haves" I was pleased with how intuitively it was to set up and use and my child has not only adjusted well but continues to amaze us every day. This app is a tool and it requires support, dedication and commitment to everyone in your child's life. I love the "history" feature where I can see what my child has been saying throughout the day. Our teacher has been able to customize it for different tasks and subjects at school. Everyone is thrilled at how quickly we have been able to enhance communication using this app.
