I was so excited when I was contacted by Virtual Speech Center. They created a brand new app to address articulation. I was so excited when they asked if I would review it! I jumped at the offer!! Thanks Virtual Speech Center for the opportunity. Reminder, all thoughts and opinions are mine!
Here is a view of the settings options that you can alter from the main first page when you open up the app:
I like that you can determine whether or not the score is shown (great if students are too competitive and lose track of the goal). You can turn on or off the game music. You can decide whether or not to save session audio and how often rewards are provided.
Best part…you can backup data, restore data, and add custom words!! Backup is great….take it from someone who has had computers randomly FAIL and have to frantically try to get data. I always back up my data and it is great that an app allows you to!!
Adding custom words:
- You can easily select which sound target.
- Then you can select the position of words.
- Finally, you can add a new image and write the word.
- This is GREAT if you wanted to include curriculum vocabulary that has the articulation target!!
