Communication app now gives voice to French children who cannot speak

Amsterdam, Netherlands – Today AssistiveWare, a leading innovator for assistive technology, released a major update for its symbol-supported communication app Proloquo2Go. The award-winning app already gives a voice to over 150,000 English and Spanish children, teens and adults who have difficulty speaking. Proloquo2Go is exclusively available for iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch. Version 4.4 adds full support for French, including a research-based vocabulary developed in collaboration with French Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) experts.


“When we started working on French a year ago, we knew we needed strong partners,” founder and CEO of AssistiveWare, David Niemeijer explained. “By partnering with the Centre d’Expertise et de Ressources Nouvelles Technologies & Communication of the APF and the French chapter of ISAAC we have been able to do justice to the beauty of the French language while building a vocabulary that allows AAC users of all ages to fully express themselves. In collaboration with Acapela Group we have also been able to create natural-sounding children’s Text to Speech voices.”


In Europe approximately 700,000 francophones are not able to make themselves understood with their own voice and may benefit from an AAC solution. This includes over 100,000 children aged 2 to 14. Proloquo2Go’s features have been carefully designed to support these AAC users’ language development and growth of communication skills.


“People who cannot speak, cannot be fully independent. Decisions are often taken without them. With an Augmentative and Alternative Communication tool they can be involved in decisions that affect them,” said lisabeth Cataix Negre, Occupational Therapist.


In addition to full French support, version 4.4 also includes support for the estimated 60,000 bilingual French-English people in Canada who have difficulty speaking. Users can configure both an English Canadian and French Canadian vocabulary. While the French vocabulary has been optimized for French, it retains the same hierarchy as English, making it easy for users to switch instantly between the two.


Also for English Canadians we have good news. The new version includes a new Canadian English vocabulary that contains many of the words that are specific to Canada.


Key features in Proloquo2Go:
* Research-based Crescendo(TM) vocabulary
* 3 vocabulary levels in 23 grid sizes to support AAC users of all skill levels
* Regional French (Metropolitan and Canadian French), Spanish and English vocabularies
* Configurable access to all French, Spanish and English grammar
* Over 60 voices, including 12 natural-sounding children’s voices
* Bilingual support for English/French and English/Spanish, including switching instantly between languages


“Proloquo2Go puts the linguistic richness of the French language front and center. The app offers the full grammar, which is very rich and at the same time accessible for children who cannot yet read,” said Albane Plateau, Speech and Language Pathologist. “For me, Proloquo2Go is the best app for language development.”


Proloquo2Go has been used successfully with individuals with the following diagnoses: autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, developmental disabilities, apraxia, stroke, traumatic brain injury and others.


Pricing and Availability:
To celebrate the release of the French version, Proloquo2Go will be available with a 50% discount from October 5 until and including October 7. The app is exclusively available on the App Store. Version 4.4 is a free update for existing users.
