GoTalk Now: Using Acapela Vocal Smiley – Exclamations and Sounds (with premium Acapela voices)

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.

See them on their website: https://www.acapela-group.com/vocal-smileys-examples/.

You can hear samples of the premium child voices: https://www.acapela-group.com/voices/children-voices/.

GoTalk Now: Video Line Expressions (thinking about creative AAC options for Gestalt Language Processors)

GoTalk Now: Video Line Expressions (https://youtu.be/v-YignzpGnw)


This is a Communication Book that I created in the GoTalk Now app with 16 buttons with very short video clips based on “scripts” that my patients used to express emotions or thoughts.

I’ve been following discussions about how traditional AAC options may not meet the needs of Gestalt Language Processors and have been thinking about how features in current AAC apps could be modified or used in creative ways.

These very short video clips and Visual Scene Displays (https://youtu.be/hGPMNVLJo0c, https://omazingkidsllc.com/2021/10/11/how-to-video-creating-a-visual-scene-page-in-gotalk-now/) or Video Visual Scene Displays are a few of the things that I’ve been thinking about.

The video clips are saved on the Camera Roll on this iPad. I downloaded many of them from the Yarn website where you can find videos by searching a line (https://getyarn.io). If I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted on that website then I made a very short screencast recording from YouTube.

The Online Gallery has been glitchy today. I attempted to upload this to share several times. My guess is the company’s website/servers are likely overwhelmed by all the folks who purchased the app during the sale yesterday. I’ll try again in a few days. In the meantime, I uploaded it to Dropbox: https://bit.ly/GTNvideoExpressions

I’m not affiliated with the app developer… just a huge fan of the app 😊

Reminder: GoTalk Now $10 app sale on 10/10/21

Reminder: The GoTalk Now app $10 sale is on Sunday, 10/10/21. Attainment Company, Inc. commented on this post on their Facebook page that the sale timeframe is based on the Central Time Zone.


I’m in that time zone and have noticed that prices often change at 10:00pm. You don’t want to miss this sale so be sure to purchase early in the day.

  • The sale only includes GoTalk Now (not the Plus version, not any in-app purchases, not any other apps) since they are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the original GoTalk Now app
  • The sale will be available worldwide (in every country that has an Apple App Store and has this app available)
  • The sale will also be available through the Apple VPP / Apple School Manager Program
  • GoTalk Now is an iPad-only app so you won’t find it if searching the App Store from an iPhone. Here’s the link: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/gotalk-now/id454176457

Resource Roundup: AAC in Early Intervention

Looking for resources to support use of AAC in Early Intervention? Here’s my curated list of resources, handouts and webinars. I’ve only shared things that I’ve personally used, read and watched. There’s no “perfect” one-size-fits-all resource. So that’s why I use bits and pieces from lots of things.
