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
Fantastic, amazing, superb!
I can’t say enough positive things about this app. To be honest this has changed my little boys life. Using actual voices is a stroke of genius. Proloquo has helped to improve my sons receptive language and he is beginning to attempt words when he presses on them. The introduction of the ability to record sounds is also fantastic. The support via your website and Facebook group has also been invaluable!

After reading the reviews I purchased this App for my daughter who has Autism and non verbal I was really excited about this App and opening many doors for my daughter to be included in the world to be heard and being part of life’s communication after desperately trying to layout the app I failed continuously eventually I emailed the company of this app asking for help I did receive a acknowledgment of my email and was told someone will respond within 5 working days that was 3 MONTHS AGO . So after 5 months of spending a vast amount of money believing this app is the golden key for my daughter it’s not for us personally feel really let down very disheartening especially it’s my daughter losing out on such a amazing app that we can’t get to use to it’s full potential that it’s meant to give

I bought this app when my daughter 5 in desperate need of learning to communicate with her now she is is 10 it helps her and me. It works, it blew my mind to see her communicate with others using it. I remember actually crying when she used the app for something as simple as asking for a drink. Totally made such a difference in my daughters life and mine. Bringing us closer. So thank you
