 Watch the What’s New video to see the highlights for 2.46. Read the details below for more information. 

New voices for your NovaChat

Your voice is an important part of your AAC experience. With update 2.46, new voice options are available to new customers (after January 2024) and to those who have previously purchased Acapela as their voice synthesizer. Your voice synthesizer is the computer system used to generate your sound. 

  • There are seven new Acapela voices—six English and one Canadian French 
  • There are also many inclusive voices from Almagu offering a wide range of voices that are realistic and representative of a variety of age groups: child, teen, adult, and senior 

Explore voice options through the settings menu. Choose Menu > Application Settings > Speech Output > Voice > Synthesizer (to pick the synthesizer) or > Voice Settings (to listen to the voices available). Within Voice Settings, you can modify a voice’s pitch and rate of speech. Be sure to save these adjustments to experience them with your selected voice. 

More computer control vocab pages available

In the previous Chat Software release 2.45, new button-action pages became available in WordPower® 60 Basic to use your AAC vocabulary as a keyboard with your InputStick. Additional computer control pages are now available for WordPower 60, 80, and 108 as well as MultiChat 15.  

 You’ll find pages to match your choice of Windows®-based PC, Mac®, or Chromebook™. Launch the COMPUTER CONTROL pages through the “ABC_123” button. Computer control pages for WordPower 140 are in process to make them most efficient for AAC communicators who use the scanning access method. 

Computer control button actions are now available for customizing pages in ChatEditor 2.46. Use this software on your PC to prepare and transfer files for your AAC communicator.
