Update Your PRC-Saltillo IOS AAC Apps To 2.35!

Posted Feb 11, 2022 - 5:50pm

It’s time to update your TouchChat®, LAMP Words For Life®, and Dialogue™ AAC apps! Check out what’s new!

TOUCHCHAT®, LAMP WORDS FOR LIFE®, AND DIALOGUE™ AAC

 With this software update you’ll see that:

  • Updates have been made to the Almagu TTS engine
  • PRC/Minspeak symbols have been updated

TOUCHCHAT® AND DIALOGUE™ ONLY - HEAD TRACKING REST AREA IMPROVEMENTS

  • Added a new On/Off setting to the top of the existing “rest area” sub-menu. If Off, all other menu items in the sub-menu will be hidden.
  • Changed the top-level “rest area” menu item to show On or Off based on the new On/Off setting (rather than the rest area size).
  • Renamed “0” to “off” in “rest area size”
  • Moved “show rest area” to the bottom of the sub-menu

 Rest Area – the inactive area surrounding the last activation point

The rest area allows the user to rest before moving to the next activation. When the user is within the rest area, head tracking does not make activations via any trigger action.

How it Works:

  • To access the rest area settings, choose Rest Area from the Head Tracking settings. The rest area settings will be displayed.
  • To activate the rest area, select the Rest Area On/Off button to turn the rest area On. Turning the button on activates the rest area and the rest area settings. Note: When the Rest Area On/Off button is turned Off, the rest area settings are not available.
  • To set the size of the rest area, select Rest Area Size to open a window for adjusting the size of the rest area radius. Select a value and choose OK. Note: Even if Rest Area Size value is set to Off, the “Use Button as Rest Area” option is still available.
  • To use the last vocabulary button activated as the rest area, select Use Button as Rest Area. The last vocabulary button activated becomes the rest area. While the pointer is within the button, head tracking does not make any activations, allowing the user to rest. “Show rest area” and “Rest area size” are not needed and are therefore not available when User Button as Rest Area is selected.
  • To make the rest area visible on the screen, select Show Rest Area. A light circle will outline the rest area perimeter. Note: Selecting Show Rest Area does not enable the rest area itself. It merely makes the rest area visible on the screen. The Rest Area On/Off setting (see above) enables and disables the rest area.
  • To leave the rest area and resume making activations, simply move the pointer out of the rest area circle or off the vocabulary button used as the rest area.

TOUCHCHAT ONLY - WORDPOWER® VOCABULARY FEATURES: 

 WordPower 25 Touch and Scan

  • Updated to include early books. Read along and engage with the AAC learner using these early books pages to build communication and literacy skills!
  • Keyboard redesigned to contain only 25 buttons per page, aligning with the rest of the vocabulary and making it easier for individuals using a keyguard to access the keyboard.
  • Phonics keyboard containing only 25 buttons per page added as another way to support literacy development. If you wish to use this phonics keyboard, you will need to edit the button to go to this new 25-location phonics keyboard.

 Writing to Apps page

  • Copying text to other apps is easier than ever with the addition of this page. Found on the Groups page, the WRITING to APPS page lets you copy and paste messages in the speech display bar to a number of different applications. Simply create the message, navigate to the WRITING to APPS page, select the desired app, and paste the message.

 New words in WordPower vocabularies

  • In all vocabularies (except WordPower20), you will now find several science themed words: include: conclude, experiment, observe, and
  • The word “another” has been added to the WordPower60 Basic vocabulary in the Extra Words category.
