Details

GoTalk NOW Music pageThe GoTalk NOW combines the simplicity of GoTalks with the dynamic capabilities of an iPad. GoTalk NOW has all the essentials of an effective AAC app, like adjustable page layouts, customizable navigation, recorded and text-to-speech capabilities, and an included symbol set. The focus here is on the creation of unique and compelling features that unmistakably separate NOW from other apps.

The new GoTalk NOW offers three styles of communication pages: Standard, Scene, and Express.

  • In Standard Pages, the action occurs when the location is pressed.
  • Scene Pages are built around a single photo or image. When you arrange visible or invisible hotspots over people or objects in the photo, they play speech, music or videos! This allows you to mix and match pages within a communication book.
  • In Express Pages, recorded or text-to-speech are linked in the message bar and played in sequence when the bar is tapped.

GoTalk NOW Multiple Page MenueCreate as many communication books as you need, each with unique settings and unlimited pages. Then share these books with other users via WiFi or AirDrop, and back them up via Dropbox or iTunes.

GoTalk NOW keeps getting better! The IOS7 update, for example, presents the standard iOS voices as text-to-speech options. You won't need to make an in-app purchase to get a text-to-speech voice anymore. Sign up for a free GoTalk NOW webinar to learn about other new features and capabilties.

Plus, GoTalk NOW offers SymbolStix or Widgit Symbols Libraries as in-app purchases!

FEATURES:

  • Auditory Cues! Add spoken labels to any Communication Location. Great for scanning, guiding visually impaired users, and identifying any new or difficult vocabulary.
  • Play videos from any communication location.
  • Trim videos to desired length in the app.

     NEWEST FEATURES:

Choose Standard, Express or Scene style communication pages. With standard pages, press any communication location for speech, music, or video. Express pages build recorded or text-to-speech messages in a speech bar at the top of the screen. When the bar is pressed, the messages play together in sequence. Scene Pages are built around a single photo or image. You arrange visible or invisible Hot Spots over people or objects in the photo, and these Hot Spots can play speech, music or videos! Feel free to mix and match page styles within a communication book.

Add SymbolStix or Widgit Symbol Libraries as in-app purchases.

Link songs from your playlist to any communication location and control them with Pause/Play, Next, and Previous.
