Bug and crash fixes for iOS 9, voice improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Not for awkward kids
I tried to use this app to help one of my younger clients with selective mutism, but the voice is so strange that it bothered him and it definitely wasn't helping him learn how to pronounce things correctly. This app would be more helpful for a literate grown up who can tolerate the strange voice and just needs a way to communicate out loud faster than regular typing.
Very useful however my spouse is hard of hearing and says the voices talk too fast and it would be nice to slow the speed down.
Seems like a good app, but in order to get better robot voice we have to pay $100 ?? why?? people that are struggling with life an special needs family members that are trying to communicate clearly. surely the technology we have today should be a easier way. TO EXPENSIVE
