We are very proud to announce the 1.4.10 version of LetMeTalk for iOS, which brings a lot of new features like "change position", sending messages with messengers or an age filter. Read this article for a more details description.
1. Reorder Items
Please note, that this feature requires iOS9. If you are still running iOS8, please update your device to iOS9.
Before using this functionality please make sure you have “Enable modifications” enabled in the LetMeTalk settings.
Now please choose an Category or image you want to move to a new position and do a long click on it. In the appearing menu please select “Change position” (*)
Now all items in this category should shake. Go to your chosen image and do another long click on it. The image should now start a “pulse” animation.
Keep the finger on the screen and move the image to the wanted position. The Shake-animation should stop and your done!
(*) if the menu does not appear, please enable “Enable modifications” and if “Change position” does not appear, please update to iOS9.
2. Send sentence with a messenger
We added a very early and simple function which enables you to send the sentence with a messenger or use the text / image or both with other types of software.
Please click on the the “Settings” icon in the lower left corner, which should open a menu. In the please choose “Send the sentence”.
Now you can send the images via Airdrop, store or print them or choose a software like mail, Facebook or your favourite messenger for more.
3. Visible response when word image is selected
To help deaf people we added a small animation whenever you select a word.
Deaf people so far had no indicator if the touch is accepted and we hope this animation helps them to use LetMeTalk.
4. Highlight spoken word in sentencebar
When you let LetMeTalk speak a sentence, the current spoken word is highlighted.This should make it easier to follow the voice.
5. Age filter
In the LetMeTalk settings you can now enable an age filter to hide questionable images from little kids.
Thanks to viv from the Stepping Stones Project for the filtered words.
6. XXL Icon size
We got some response by owners of large tablets, which wanted to use even larger icons. We now enabled the XXL size which is 50% larger in each direction then the largest icon size so far.
7. Better language support for Polish and Cantonese
LetMeTalk now offers full UI support for Polish and Cantonese. The word list for polish was improved and the words in Cantonese get more and more.
Thanks to Lukasz and Sherman for their work.
Of course we also fixed a lot of the crasher bugs we found along the way.
We think this update is a huge step for LetMeTalk iOS and we hope you will have an even better experience then in the past.
I wish you a lot of fun with this release!
