Innovation is at your doorstep again! Today we released Proloquo2Go 4.0.2, an update that expands its support for Apple Watch. Proloquo2Go for Apple Watch already allowed users with fine motor-challenges to use Apple Watch as a single switch to access Proloquo2Go on an iPhone. Proloquo2Go 4.0.2 now adds the ability to use Apple Watch for communication.
The app provides quick access to a number of pre-programmed phrases as well as a sentence builder on Apple Watch. With the sentence builder simple sentences can be created. To create a sentence, the user can pick from of a number of included sentence starters combined with various nouns or adjectives from over 10 categories.
As third-parties do not have access to Text to Speech on Apple Watch, there will be no speech available. When a sentence is selected it will be displayed full screen and upside-down so that it is easy to read for the communication partner when you flick your wrist in their direction.
Proloquo2Go 4.0.2 is a free update for existing users, and also includes the new features to better support language development and growth of communication skills that were introduced in the major 4.0 update
earlier this year. New users can purchase the app on the App Store.
Note that you need Watch OS 2 on your Apple Watch and iOS 9 on your iPhone to have access to Proloquo2Go for Apple Watch
