Update Your Software to 2.39!

Posted on 2022-10-25 17:02:14 by Admin under News

Let’s see what’s new for the NovaChat line of devices in update version 2.39. 

Voices

  • Acapela has added new voices to include more diverse child and adult options. You can find these in the Speech Output section of the Application Settings, under Voice.
    • Malik (African American male child)
    • Tiana (African American female child)
    • Constance (French female adult)

 Grammar Feature

  • Another new setting has been added to the Speech Output section labeled Grammar.
    • When Grammar is unchecked, it will only speak the initial hit of the present tense and then speak the grammatically correct word ending when the full message is spoken.
    • When this is enabled, it will say the present tense on the initial hit and then say the new form of the word after you select the word ending. This is how it spoke before this setting was added. 

 Vocabulary/WordPower®

  • You gave us the feedback and we listened. The symbols for “pretty” and “ugly” have been updated in all WordPower files to be more inclusive.
  • WordPower25 English vocabulary file was updated and now includes an option to talk about your favorite things after selecting “I want” or “I like” so you can have fun talking about your favorite things!
  • WordPower80 and 108 also got an update. You can now ask “How was your weekend?” from the Social page to encourage conversation and engagement with others.
  • WordPower Françaisgot an update so you now can express more with fewer button pushes!
  • In both WordPower Français files, you can now say “What are…” on the Questions page.
  • In WordPower60 Français, you can now say “My favorite color(s) is(are)” and “What is(are) your favorite colors(s)?”

Whiteboard has now been added to the newest 2.38 software version. Take some time today to update and get ready to have fun drawing, collaborating and sharing!

Work on Literacy and Emerging Writing with Whiteboard

Since scribbling and giving meaning to those scribbles is an important first step in developing written language, the whiteboard feature is an invaluable tool when working on literacy and emerging writing skills with your AAC learner. Providing your AAC learner with opportunities to draw using an alternative pencil in whiteboard puts them on a path to developing written language and literacy skills.

A Handy Communication Aid

In addition to being a great tool for literacy and emerging writing, whiteboard can also be used to create drawings and other visual prompts that can help aid communication, making it a very versatile tool!

Ways to Get Creative with Whiteboard:

FUN WITH COLOR

Great for drawing, practicing writing skills, and more, whiteboard comes equipped with black, red, green, blue, and yellow colors for plenty of colorful inspiration!

DRAW LINES YOUR WAY

You have the freedom to choose thin, normal, or thick line widths (thicknesses) to give your writing and drawing activities just the right look and accommodate a variety of vision challenges.

SAVE YOUR WORK

Love your drawing and want to keep it for later? Whiteboard lets you save your work, giving you the ability to load it again later so your artwork or writing is always at-the-ready!

YOUR DRAWING, YOUR WAY

Clear, Undo, and Erase functions enable you to delete or fine-tune your creations quickly and easily.

  • Clear – Removes the entire drawing
  • Undo – Removes the most recent addition or change
  • Erase – Removes a portion of your drawing

Update your NovaChat to 2.38 today and get ready to express yourself with the new whiteboard feature!
