What's New

Proloquo2Go 4.3 adds several exciting new features:
- Gateway to Language & Learning© core word vocabulary
- Fitzgerald Key and custom color coding
- Usability enhancements

Gateway to Language & Learning© core word vocabulary

Gateway to Language & Learning© is a popular core word vocabulary first developed in 1997 by Joan Bruno, Ph.D., CCC-SLP. Gateway for Proloquo2Go is the most comprehensive Gateway available, with 14 additional grids sizes and one new vocabulary set (Child Functional, for Autism Spectrum Disorders). You’ll also benefit from Proloquo2Go’s powerful access options and the ability to easily transition from one vocabulary set to the next without having to copy buttons between users. Gateway is available through an in-app purchase.

Fitzgerald Key and custom color coding

Proloquo2Go already offered automatic color coding of button borders and button backgrounds based on the modified Fitzgerald Key. Now you can additionally use the classic Fitzgerald Key or even define your own custom color coding scheme.

Usability enhancements

Several improvements have been made to the design and flow of the Startup Wizard. It is now easier to select your language and voice based on your region. Setting up two languages is even easier for bilingual users. A cleaner, more minimal design makes selecting an orientation and grid size more intuitive.

Version 4.3 also includes a few minor accessibility and voice quality fixes.

App Description

Proloquo2Go is an award-winning symbol-supported communication app providing a voice to over 150,000 individuals who cannot speak. It is designed to promote growth of communication skills and foster language development through research-based vocabularies. Its innovative features provide support for parents, teachers and therapists to implement AAC best practices.

“Users can open Proloquo2Go and begin to use it for effective communication immediately.” – Susan Berkowitz, MS-SLP, AAC Consultant.

Proloquo2Go is one of the few AAC apps that covers all users, from beginning to advanced communicators, while catering for a wide range of fine-motor, visual and cognitive skills.

The research-based Crescendo™ vocabulary offers three vocabulary levels in 23 different grid sizes. Users can easily transition as language skills expand while customizations are retained. Core words appear in the same location across folders to support learning through motor planning. Proloquo2Go and the Crescendo™ vocabulary are available in English and Spanish, with support for bilingual use you can instantly switch between languages at any time.

In addition to the built-in Crescendo core word vocabulary, Proloquo2Go now offers Gateway to Language & Learning© through an in-app purchase.
