Game Changer App Updates from PRC-Saltillo: TouchChat with WordPower, LAMP Words for Life & Dialogue AAC

There were several “game changing” updates released today for each of the PRC-Saltillo AAC apps.

Reminder: It is always wise to back up customized programming in at least two ways outside of the iPad BEFORE installing an app update.

If you need info about how to backup your app, see their websites for details:


TouchChat with WordPower: All of the English & Spanish high quality Acapela voices that used to require in-app purchases are now included. This is a huge game changer since schools, state run facilities and many funding sources had difficulty with the in-app purchasing process. It was especially problematic for entities using a MDM (mobile device management) system.

*** Note: There are still currently IAPs for premium voices for other languages besides English & Spanish *** I’ll update this post if they eventually end up including the voices for more languages


TouchChat with WordPower: New Hardware Support for the Irisbond Hiru Eye Tracker


LAMP Words for Life: All of the English & Spanish high quality Acapela voices that used to require in-app purchases are now included. This is a huge game changer since schools, state run facilities and many funding sources had difficulty with the in-app purchasing process. It was especially problematic for entities using a MDM (mobile device management) system.


Dialogue AAC: Spanish vocab files have been added. Three Spanish Almagu voices are now available. You can create a bilingual Spanish/English setup by setting up profiles.

(8/24/22 Edited to add: I just saw a comment over in the LAMP WFL Users Facebook group indicating: “With the last update the voices that come with the app have changed. New app purchases will have access to Acapela and Almagu voices. Apps that were purchased earlier than the release of version 2.38 will keep access to Ivona voices even after the update.”

The issue that the person posting relayed was her daughter was accustomed to the Ivona “Ivy” voice on the app on their iPad at home & the school had just purchased the app for use on their iPad and Ivy wasn’t an option. I don’t know if there is any work around for this. I’ll update this section if I hear anything.
