Tap images. Type words. Speak. Proloquo2Go is an easy to use communication app for people who cannot speak or need help being understood. Featuring natural sounding voices, including real children’s voices, Proloquo2Go is a simple yet powerful AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) tool. The app is fully customisable and can be utilised to build language skills and grow with a person’s communication, supporting both beginning and advanced communicators.
Parents, therapists, teachers and users around the world recognise Proloquo2Go as the gold standard in AAC solutions. The app is used by people with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, Angelman syndrome, and others with speech difficulties. The app is available in English, Spanish, French, and Dutch and supports bilingual use, so you can switch languages on the fly.
Proloquo2Go in action:
Learn and grow
Studies show that just 200-400 words make up 80 % of what we say. Known as core words, they act as the basis of Proloquo2Go’s research-based Crescendo™ vocabulary. Users can grow from single words to full sentences in the same app. Crescendo puts core words in consistent locations for easy access and motor-planning. The vocabulary works with AAC best practices like modelling (where you use an AAC system to talk with the user) to develop language skills. Crescendo offers no limit on language development with a 10,000+ fringe word vocabulary and customisable vocabulary levels. Finally, with Progressive Language, words are gradually revealed step-by-step, helping users learn words and their location as their communication expands.
Customising Proloquo2Go is a breeze! Quickly and easily add new words. Use the app’s built-in library of 25,000 symbols or use your own photos by taking pictures within the app or selecting them from your photo library. For users with fine-motor challenges and vision impairments, Proloquo2Go offers options like 23 pre-programmed grid sizes and accessibility settings which support switch scanning and Apple’s VoiceOver screen reader. Everything from appearance to access is customisable so you can make it your own.
Type and speak
Besides tapping images, Proloquo2Go also lets you type what you want to say. The app includes a Grid Keyboard arranged alphabetically for people learning to type. For more experienced typists, Proloquo2Go includes a Typing View with a QWERTY keyboard and word prediction that offers suggestions based on what you are typing.
Hello! ¡Hola! Bonjour! Hallo!
Proloquo2Go lets you select a language and region for the Crescendo vocabulary. Two languages can be used at the same time, allowing seamless bilingual speech. Over 100 included downloadable natural-sounding adult and children’s voices rounds out your choices to use the app your way.

Ratings and Reviews
Everything you need and continued support
I purchased Proloquo2Go in 2011 for my non verbal son and haven’t looked back. The AssistiveWare team listen to users and implement the necessary changes with many free updates that must take months to years of work. Once you buy Proloquo2Go there’s no more costs. If you learn the teaching strategies well and don’t just expect a user to start using it, it’s an app for a lifetime! Has made a huge difference in my son’s life. He can now communicate anywhere with anyone at anytime!

Have a child with no speech or limited speech, this program has helped my non verbal son to speak, spell, communicate and more. He was non verbal, frustrated with people persisting he use pecs cards to communicate. He immediately engaged with this and hearing vocabulary it wasn’t long and he was imitating words as he himself explored the program.
Thank you to the creator.

Easy to use
Great program/app. Easy to use. Lots of images to choose from. If the pronunciation doesn’t fit the word, just phonetically write it. Love the app. No training required as was advised I would need a speech therapist.
