Summary

Text-oriented communication tool that converts text to speech, and speaks on behalf of people who are literate but have difficulty speaking. Word and sentence prediction help the user write messages. Commonly-employed phrases can be saved. Screen layout can be individualised; font colour and size can be adjusted; words and sentences can be highlighted. The app gives access to email and social media. Note that although the app verbalises in 15 languages, the user interface can be set to function in only five of these languages (Dutch, English, French, German, and Spanish).

Reviews

Reviewer: Social Skills for Autonomous People blog, USA
Review: “This is Proloquo4Text, an augmentative-and-alternative communication (AAC) program for Apple devices. It does only text, unlike Proloquo2Go, and stays on a single page. It has word prediction, sentence prediction, and a side panel of pre-written words and sentences. It’s cheaper than Proloquo2Go. You might be interested in this if you need AAC with good word prediction and high-quality voices, but not have to pay for picture symbols you’re never going to use. The colours and fonts are customisable. I’m using it for my word-based communication, and Proloquo2Go for my picture-based communication, because it has always been hard for me to switch between picture and word modes on Proloquo2Go (a cognitive problem, not a fault of the program).”

Reviewer: BridgingApps—Bridging the gap between technology and people with disabilities, USA
Review: “A text-to-speech app for alternative communication. The app is text-based, and includes word prediction and sentence prediction. These two features allow much faster communication through the keyboard than simply typing all the words and sentences. The app includes a choice of 85 voices and 15 languages. It is easy to switch languages, so a bilingual user can easily communicate in both languages. Messages can be delivered auditorily or through AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, email and messaging. Because it is text-based, this tool would be extremely useful for children and adults who are literate, including those with diagnoses of autism, cerebral palsy, developmental disabilities, apraxia, ALS/MND, laryngectomy, stroke, or traumatic brain injury."

Review: “You can adjust the screen layout, and the way you interact according to the user needs (size, font and colour of text, type of prediction, options to show on-screen, etc).”
