Awesome NEW Speak Mode Features in CoughDrop AAC

Sep 17, 2019

CoughDrop is already a robust, flexible, cloud-based augmentative communication option that can be used on just about any device -- but there's always room to improve.

We've been listening to CoughDrop users and paying close attention to their ideas and suggestions -- and we are really excited to share the fruits of that communication.

We've taken several great recommendations and shaped the CoughDrop program so that it has some shiny new features available in speak mode to adjust, save, and share composed messages.

Some of the user-suggested options now available in speak mode include:

  • Text a contact directly from speak mode and have them respond to the message as well

  • Hold your words by pausing one message to say something else and then coming back to the original message

  • Repair or adjust a composed sentence to correct an error, change the tone, or to model grammar

  • Flip the text over so someone else can easily read it

  • Create a collection of quick use phrases, keep a journal, or create a presentation and save it for future use

There are so many things you can do with these features!

Take a quick tour of the updated sentence box features here -- then jump in and try them for yourself. We think you'll LOVE it!!
