“ProLoQuo2Go is an app that is very similar to expensive talkers. It comes preloaded with LOTS of categories (emotions, foods, animals, sports, hobbies, etc.). You can program icons with individual words (eg, 'I' 'want' 'milk' 'cookies'...etc.) and/or you can program icons with sentences or phrases. It has various voices to choose for the audio, and good volume control.”
Description:Proloquo2Go® is an award-winning symbol-supported communication app providing a voice to over 75,000 individuals around the world who are unable to speak.
