-- St. Paul, MN – October 15, 2011 – AbleNet proudly introduces another in a long line of innovations designed to transform the lives of people with disabilities. The original SoundingBoard was the among the first simple AAC board creation apps on the market for iPod, iPhone, and iPad. SoundingBoard version 2 was the first app to introduce scanning switch access. With version 3.0, SoundingBoard leads the way again with powerful new features:
The first simple AAC app to offer this feature, auditory scanning opens up the app world to people with low vision. Simply record brief auditory prompts for each message location to take advantage of this feature on any board.
SoundingBoard version 3.0 collects both high level data on the most popular boards and symbols used on your device, but also in depth information on every action. Simply email the data files and open them in your favorite spreadsheet program.
In-App Purchase of Professionally-
SoundingBoard will always allow you to create your own boards, and will always be loaded with a few common boards, but SoundingBoard version 3.0 takes that a step further. We will be offering - through the "in-app purchase" mechanism - professionally-
created communication boards for about $0.99 each.
SoundingBoard version 3 is packed full of several more enhancements (sound quality, ease of use, and the ability to lock editing functions to name a few). "AbleNet is proud to extend its 'easy-tech' brand into the AAC app market with SoundingBoard,"
said AbleNet Marketing VP Jason Voiovich. "While others may pack in more features, we've made SoundingBoard version 3 easier to use - and more useful - than ever. SoundingBoard is the ideal balance of simplicity and features."
