PRLog - Aug. 16, 2014 - Founded by a language and culture lover, Smarty Ears CEO, Barbara Fernandes is vested in providing quality apps that will help children not only in English but also in as many languages as possible. Smarty Ears has released a new version of two apps: WhQuestions & Fun & Functional that will help children with language difficulties reach their potential in their native languages. WhQuestion is now available in Spanish, Portuguese & French. While Fun  & Functional is now also available in Spanish & Portuguese. All language are available inside the same app, users can switch language choices within the settings of each app.

As a practicing speech-therapist, 95% of the children I saw were Spanish speakers; Spanish speaking clinicians end up pulling their hair out to come up with materials in languages other than English. I want to make sure other Spanish speaking therapists in the Unites States and around the world can have more tools to help children communicate.” Said Smarty Ears CEO, Barbara Fernandes.

The latest version of WhQuestions includes a receptive and an expressive component to answering a variety of WhQuestions. WH Questions features over 400 opportunities to answer and ask real-world questions. With beautifully designed fun illustrations, and versatile yet real world questions, WH Questions is the “go-to” app for helping students attain proficiency at asking and answering basic questions. The app is available on the app store and compatible with the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Watch the video for WhQuestions here: http://vimeo.com/101953412




Fun & Functional, authored by speech-language-pathologist Rosie Simms, was designed to help improve language comprehension and expression in individuals by enhancing the ability to identify and describe the function or use of real-world objects. Fun & Functional users can now easily switch language of choice of the app by accessing the settings function. Fun & Functional can be downloaded from the app store on the link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fun-functional/id49864001...

Smarty Ears is already one of the leading providers of apps for speech therapy in Brazil with over 14 apps in Portuguese. Smarty Ears has a dedicated website for their Brazilian users on http://www.ipadfono.com. Smarty Ears has also started building their dedicated Spanish website which will be released in the last quarter of 2014.

The company has spent a large amount of effort in 2014 in translating their apps into other languages. Some of Smarty Ears apps are now available in five languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, German & French. Smarty Ears plans to release two additional apps in Portuguese and Spanish before the end of 2014, and to start offering more apps in French in 2015.
