GoTalk Now: Using Acapela Vocal Smiley – Exclamations and Sounds (with premium Acapela voices):
This video shows how you can add personality (spunk / intonation) and sound effects to GoTalk Now if you are using one of the premium Acapela voices.
I recently purchased the Josh and Ella premium USA English child voices since I have them in other AAC apps and love using them.
The codes for the Vocal Smiley Exclamations and Sounds are specific to that particular language and voice.
