GoTalk NOW provides all the tools you’ll need in an AAC app, plus so much more! Newly included with NOW are the Core word communication pages. Core vocabulary refer to a small collection of words that make up the majority of words used in daily communication. Now you have instant access to a set of pages, field-tested and created by SLP Gisele Morin-Connolly, based on Project CORE research from UNC Center for Literacy and Disability Studies. These Core pages will be a great starting point and will have you communicating in no time. Communicate using one word to 36 words enhanced with these core pages and more! Create and add new pages that suit your personality too. Choose from four mix-and-match page styles: Standard, Express, Visual Scene, and Keyboard.
Additionally, offered are GoTalk NOW Curriculum Pages. These pages correspond to the curricula that comprise Attainment’s Core Curriculum Solution and are available through the Online Template Gallery. Enjoy instant access to resources that will give students the opportunity to engage and participate in classroom activities.
GoTalk NOW gives flexibility and access. Use one or multiple images with unlimited text in any communication location. Take images from a symbol set, your camera roll, or via GoTalk NOW’s built-in internet image search. Record video modeling sequences to pair instruction with communication. Play music to heighten interest. Choose text-to-speech or recorded audio for message content. Jump to any communication page, even from a different communication book. Add auditory cues to allow both auditory and visual scanning. Select automatic or step scanning, adjust scanning speed, and group buttons together by row or column for more efficient scanning. Share communication books with others via WiFi or AirDrop. Access our free online gallery. Back up your communication books with Dropbox or iTunes.
GoTalk NOW includes the GoTalk Image Library and employs built-in iOS text-to-speech voices. You can enhance GoTalk NOW with in-app purchases. SymbolStix and Picture Communication Symbols (PCS) libraries are available, as are high quality male, female, and child voices from Acapela. Voices come in many languages, starting at 99¢ each. Add premade communication books by AAC experts, shown on pg. 57, and hit the ground talking.
In Standard pages, action occurs when the location is tapped. Build a page with 1, 2, 4, 9, 16, 25, or 36 locations.
Express pages accumulate selected messages in a speech bar that play in sequence when tapped.
Keyboard pages, with built-in word prediction, let advanced users type and speak unique communications on the spot.
Arrange hotspots over an image on a Visual Scene page or create a Hybrid Visual Scene that allows you to communicate more in depth about the scene or navigate to related scenes. Pages are great for enhancing a family photo, classroom snapshots, or picture in a school project.
