Proloquo2go 4.0 Takes Augmentative Communication To The Next Level

No Comments

Amsterdam, Netherlands – ssistiveWare, a leading innovator in the assistive technology market, today announced Proloquo2Go 4.0, a major new release of its award-winning symbol-supported Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) app that provides a voice to over 125,000 children, teens and adults who cannot speak. Proloquo2Go 4.0 is designed to enhance language development and communication for AAC users. It also aims to better support parents, teachers and therapists to implement AAC best practices.

“We have worked two years on Proloquo2Go 4 and are extremely excited about all the new features,” said David Niemeijer, AssistiveWare’s founder and CEO. “Our focus for this update was to ensure the user’s growth of communication skills and language development while making customization easy and fast for teachers, therapists and parents.”

Proloquo2Go is one of the few AAC apps that covers all users, from beginning to advanced communicators, while catering for a wide range of fine-motor, visual and cognitive skills. It is designed to grow along with the user. The multi-level Crescendo(TM) vocabulary offers three vocabulary levels in 23 different grid sizes. Users can easily transition as language skills expand whilst customizations are retained. Core words appear in the same location across folders to support learning through motor planning. Through an easy to use template system these benefits also extend to user created folders.

“Proloquo2Go 4 is a very exciting step forward for this comprehensive AAC app. Many of the new features lead to more efficient (and therefore faster) communication,” said Jane Farrall, world-renowned AAC specialist. “However, the most exciting feature is that Proloquo2Go 4 is not just about communication – but also has a big focus on language development.”

Proloquo2Go has been used successfully with individuals with the following diagnoses: autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, developmental disabilities, apraxia, stroke, traumatic brain injury and others.

The headline new features of Proloquo2Go 4 include:
* Research-based Crescendo(TM) vocabulary, offering three vocabulary levels: Basic Communication, Intermediate Core and Advanced Core
* American, British and Australian vocabulary variants
* Templates with core words on a consistent place throughout the vocabulary to support learning through motor planning
* Activity templates making it easy for user to create consistent activity-specific pages
* Expanded and full customizable grammar support for verbs and inflection support for nouns, pronouns and adjectives
* Redesigned Edit Mode that speeds up common editing tasks by 35%
* Share folders (one level deep) between users

In Its First Year Monkimun Provides 10 million Language Lessons to Kids

No Comments

Madrid, Spain – Monkimun, an award-winning educational technology company that makes language learning for children ages two-to-six fun, today announced that in the last six months there were more than a million downloads of its unique language learning apps and more than 10 million lessons delivered in the last year, making Monkimun apps a top go-to solution for language learning for young children. To date, Monkimun’s six apps have earned seven high profile industry awards and nearly 4,500 five-star reviews from parents delighted their children are learning English, Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

“We have a 2 year old kid and she loves Monkimun, specially Birthday Party, Hide & Seek and Monki Home. Thank you Monki team for help our kids learn English having fun,” shared a reviewer from Spain on the Apple store. “This app is designed well to teach preschoolers a second language in a naturalistic way. Fun, too–even my 7 year old loved it,” remarked a US-based parent also from the Apple store.

“Chinese Class is so fun and easy and I found myself remembering day after day the words I had learned previously. The pictures are rational and very practical to the word and make sense. The way it is presented is clean and simple, few distractions. As both a linguist and a language teacher this app is great for learning Chinese and hope to see something similar for other asian languages! I would recommend this to anyone!” said Jennifer McQueen on Google Play, making the common request for many more apps in the future from Monkimun.

This summer, Monkimun will release a subscription-based adaptive language learning platform that integrates lessons and content into a one-stop-shop for parents looking to raise multilingual kids. The platform will also allow communities of teachers and parents to contribute lessons. Post platform launch, Monkimun will accelerate its new stand-alone app releases to once a month , delivered among the three core app stores: Apple, Google and Amazon. Finally, the company is negotiating partnerships with a variety of publishing powerhouses and notable educational institutions specializing in early childhood education for co-development of content.

“All parents want more for their children. Giving them the gift of language learning between two to six, when their brains are hard-wired to learn language, means learning can be easier for their kids–and those kids will enjoy the advantages of multilingualism throughout the rest of their lives,” said Cristobal Viedma, CEO and co-founder of Monkimun. “10 million lessons in our first year is the equivalent of 56 years of continuous language learning. That’s a lot of young children acquiring another language. Monkimun apps are forever linked with significantly reducing the effort of language learning, making learning fun, and helping our youngest learners gain a leg-up in life.”

One may assume advantages of multilingualism are limited to the ability to converse in more than one language. But there’s more. Studies show multilinguals tend to score better on standardized tests, especially in math, reading, and vocabulary, are more perceptive to their surroundings, and therefore better at focusing in on important information while weeding out misleading information. In addition, multilinguals tend to have enhanced memory, planning, and multi-tasking skills, use more of their brains than monolinguals, and even outperform monolinguals on creativity tests.

Monkimun is a San Francisco/Madrid based startup founded in 2014. Monkimun technology makes language learning for toddlers and kids fun. It enables parents to raise multilingual children and give them a greater chance for success the rest of their lives. Monkimun currently offers six award winning children’s language learning apps in English, Spanish and Chinese, including Monki Home, Monki Hide and Seek, Monki Shake It, Monki Animal Builder, Monki Birthday Party and the Google’s 2014 best app award winning Monki Chinese Class. All of them can be downloaded from the Apple Store, Google Play and Amazon. The company will soon release a subscription platform that integrates all lessons and content to offer a one stop shop for parents looking to raise multilingual kids.

StretchLink expands and cleans URLs automatically

No Comments

Winona, Minnesota – Independent developer, Brett Terpstra, author of Marked 2, today is proud to announce the release of StretchLink 1.0, his new URL utility for OS X. StretchLink was developed exclusively for expanding shortened urls (t.co, bit.ly, etc.), removing redirects, and cleaning out referrer junk (Google Analytics, HootSuite, etc.) so that you can share urls without any “baggage.”

StretchLink runs in the OS X menu bar. Click the icon to open the main panel from which it can expand and clean links on demand with a single click, or can be set to silently watch your clipboard. When watching the clipboard, urls that the user copies from the web, emails, Twitter clients, or anywhere on their system are instantly converted to reveal their actual destination, with unnecessary query strings (the ?blabla=bergybergy stuff that Google, Twitter, Facebook, and others use to track clicks) removed. By the time you go to paste into an email, a blog post, a new Tweet, (or anywhere), you’ll get the url you wanted, not the one that redirects through Twitter or Facebook, then sends information to Google, and then (maybe) finally gets to where you wanted to go.

Whether you’re sending links to friends or publishing a blog, you want to protect your friends and readers from redirects and privacy issues that can be caused by unintentionally publishing a shortened link. StretchLink removes the need to think twice about it.

Pricing and Availability:
StretchLink 1.0 is priced at $1.99. It is currently available for direct purchase with a free trial available. An introductory sale of $0.99 (50% off) will take place through the month of May, 2015. A Mac App Store release is planned for the near future.

BeeKeeper, USB-C to USB Adapter for New MacBook, Now on Kickstarter

No Comments

Nashville, Tennessee – The BeeKeeper, now funding on Kickstarter, provides a solution to the new MacBook’s USB issue. BeeKeeper combines the USB adapters and the charge cable, therefore a hassle-free standard USB is ready at all times.

The BeeKeeper cable has a USB-C connector on one end and a standard USB male connector on the other end. A USB to USB-C adapter could be plugged into the USB male end and turned into a fully functional charging cable for the new Macbook. When users need a USB port, they simply unplug the USB-C adapter from the cable and the USB port on the adapter becomes available.

The BeeKeeper System is made with convenience in mind. The USB-C adapter can stay in the MacBook for daily usage, keeping a standard USB port available at all times or it can attach to the BeeKeeper charge cord for convenience while traveling.

BeeKeeper is equipped with the most advanced power delivery system in the world. It may be small but it is one of few third-party accessories that handles 29W power delivery that is required by the new MacBook and is capable of running full speed under USB 3.1.

“BeeKeeper is the most convenient and affordable solution for Apple lovers to use,” said Wayne Liu, creator of BeeKeeper. “It is simple, versatile and effective for everyday use of their iOS devices.”

The standard BeeKeeper system comes with a USB-C to USB adapter and a two-meter USB-C charger, however a three-meter and five-meter charge cable is available to backers as well. A limited edition tangle-free flat charge cable is also available. All interfaces of BeeKeeper are covered by aluminum housing in either silver, gold or space grey to match the new MacBooks.

The cable is environmentally friendly and made from the highest quality materials. Its copper core and non-toxic PVC insulation provide a reliable supply of power, while the aluminum housing provides the strongest support to the interface.

BeeKeeper’s Kickstarter campaign has 13 days left and a funding goal of $33,000. For more information, please contact Olivia Sorrells.

BeeKeeper is passionate about Apple devices and creating everyday products to make Apple users’ lives easier. Replacing current USB devices with USB-C devices is unrealistic, and carrying around an extra adapter is inconvenient. As a result, Jamie O’Rourke and Wayne Liu, creators of BeeKeeper, have been thinking about how to solve this problem since the first day that Apple released the new MacBook.
