[prMac.com] Amsterdam, Netherlands - AssistiveWare(R) today announced the release of Proloquo2Go(TM) 1.2 for iPhone and iPod touch. Version 1.2 is a major update to the first consumer device-based communication solution for people who cannot speak. Costing a fraction of the dedicated devices it rivals in power, flexibility, portability and easy of use, Proloquo2Go 1.2 adds dozens of enhancements and fixes. This update is available through iTunes free of charge for current users.
New Features and Enhancements:

This is an application that changes people's lives. At US$189.99 Proloquo2Go costs a fraction of the dedicated devices it rivals, which typically cost anywhere between US$2500 and US$8000. Users and speech-language pathologists love Proloquo2Go and even though it has been on the market for less than a year over 100 assistive technology centers already include it in client evaluations.
