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, Picture Communication Symbols (PCS) libraries, additional high quality voice recordings from Acapela, and communication books created by Attainment Company available as in-app purchases for further customizability.
