  • The right app

    by AimImages

    I've been searching for the perfect "text to speech" app for my non verbal teenager with Autism ever since we got our first iPad. I was tempted for so long by Proloquo2Go - but my child's strength is text based communication - the interest for picture communication just isn't there. This app checked all the boxes of "must haves" I was pleased with how intuitively it was to set up and use and my child has not only adjusted well but continues to amaze us every day. This app is a tool and it requires support, dedication and commitment to everyone in your child's life. I love the "history" feature where I can see what my child has been saying throughout the day. Our teacher has been able to customize it for different tasks and subjects at school. Everyone is thrilled at how quickly we have been able to enhance communication using this app.

  • Great app! I heard

    by Bigbriáń

    I heard álot about proloquo2go and was bummed out cause I couldn't get it, then I saw this app, less expensive you finally put me at ease

  • Just what I needed

    by Kberg31974

    This is the app I have been waiting for! I had been using a combination of three or four different apps to accomplish my various word prediction and communication needs. They each did something I needed fairly well but not great. Proloquo4text, though, does everything I need and more, and it does so with stellar results. Thank you for making this app everything I need. I do hope, however, that they will consider not quite doubling the price. Personally I think $64.99 is almost the ideal price, maybe a bit more, but I think some of these apps are out of the price range of those who need them most.

  • Great Text to Speech app!!!

    by iggy3737

    As a big fan of Proloquo2Go I was very excited to give Proloquo4Text a try. I have to say I am very impressed!! This is the best text to speech system I've used! I love the quick phrases and all of the other pre stored phrases. Very easy to edit and save things from your history. It has amazing word and sentence prediction. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a text to speech app for any ios device!
