5.0 is now available for you to download. We have been working hard to include several features based on your feedback:
Quickly find words
Search has been on the wish list of our community and of everyone at AssistiveWare for a long time. After thorough investigation of the different ways of implementing, we think it is even better than you expected. The new Search feature
has been designed with a clinical perspective; not only will you see the path to the button you’re looking for, Proloquo2Go will also guide you through the path step-by-step. If the searched button is located in your Storage, it will automatically be added to the user’s vocabulary.
Keep growing language skills
To make sure the user’s language skills grow and the user doesn’t become stuck at the same vocabulary, we have introduced switching between levels and grid sizes within the same vocabulary in Proloquo2Go 4. Changing the grid size unfortunately isn’t ideal for the user. As locations of buttons move, the person needs to re-learn how to find words. To make sure users reach their full potential, we recommend selecting a large grid size. If this is considered too overwhelming for the user, hide buttons and gradually reveal them as user skills grow. However, this is a time-consuming and complicated task. What if Proloquo2Go does this automatically? Our new Progressive Language feature
helps to quickly and systematically hide and reveal buttons in a developmental sequence.
Progressive Language in Proloquo2Go 5 allows clinicians to take a research led approach to language development whilst staying true to best practice in AAC. It is one of the most exciting developments in the AAC world in 2017.

Never lose backups again
The biggest nightmare for all professionals, parents and users: something happens to the app or device, and then realizing that a backup was never made. Fortunately, with Proloquo2Go 5’s automatic backups
to Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud, saving a backup is one less thing you have to worry about! When any of these features are enabled, Proloquo2Go will automatically upload a backup whenever an internal backup is made. Note that an internet connection is required to transfer these backups.
