TapSpeak Choice 4.0 Update

TapSpeak, LLC
TapSpeak Choice 4.0 Update is Here!

You asked for it and it on it's way....

Early Spring 2013 an AAC page set developed by Debbie Witkowski, MA, CCC-SLP, with Semantic Compaction Systems, will be a part of soon to come TapSpeak Choice update. Here is why this page sets are better than the rest.....

The Choice AAC page set will enable users to generate novel language with a solid core vocabulary base in which all core words can be accessed with no more than 3 hits and often only 1-2. 

Morphological word endings provide users with the ability to produce grammatically correct sentences. Users can develop consistent motor plans for each word since every vocabulary item is programmed to navigate back to the home page upon selection.

Happy New Year! We are very excited about some new things that will be rolled out in the upcoming months. Thank you for telling us what you want, what works and what does' nt work for your clients, students and kiddos. We continue to learn and make improvements to all our apps and we thank you for all your input.

If you live with in a 60 mile radus of Pittsburgh, PA and need some tech support we are happy to come over and fix it. Here is one happy family that Ted went to help out a few weeks before Christmas.
(Ted was able to install a beta version of TS Choice 4.0 for them to try out)
Hi Conley Family-
  Just writing to wish you a merry Christmas! Abby is making great progress with TapSpeak now - I think all the updates in the beta version are really making it easier for her to use. Last week she was able to tell her teacher - in no uncertain terms that she was tired. She was not hungry, but she was tired. It was the first time she has ever expressed on the ipad that she wanted to take a nap- sounds small, but it was pretty big for us. So thank you for creating this and giving our girl a voice.

Merry Christmas!!

Erin Gabriel
