Removing Ivona Voices from LAMP Words for Life

With update 2.49, Ivona voices are being removed from the LAMP Words for Life app. These voices are not compatible with Apple’s operating system and technical support is extremely limited.

Your voice is an important part of your AAC solution and we did not want you experiencing a poor-quality voice or having it go away unexpectedly. Notifications of this change began in February 2024 to give you time to thoughtfully choose your next app voice option.

There are many voices available to you at no charge within the LAMP Words for Life app. You may discover a voice like your current choice, or you may decide to start fresh with a different voice style. Explore your free standard and custom voice options.
