2. Choosing a Language

Back Next

Our Touch apps include written and spoken words in a number of languages, and we are continuing to add support for more. They also have an option to display the written words in capital letters.

Touch-Words and Touch-Animals currently include 23 languages: English (American, British and Australian), Albanian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Dutch, Finnish, Flemish, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Luxembourgish, Norwegian (Bokmål), Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian and Welsh.

Touch-Numbers currently includes 11 languages: English (American and British), Catalan, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Spanish and Turkish.

Touch-Colours, Touch-Shapes and Touch-Emotions currently include 9 languages: English (American and British), Catalan, Croatian, French, German, Norwegian, Polish and Spanish.

By default, the language used by the app depends on the language and region format set for your mobile device in Apple's Settings app (under General > International). So, for instance, if the language is set to "Español", the app will use Spanish text and a Spanish spoken voice. If the language you select isn't supported by the app, then English is used.

To hear a British English voice instead of American, set your device's language to British English, not English. To hear an Australian voice in Touch-Words or Touch-Animals, set the device's region format to Australia (iOS 6.1 or earlier) or set the device's language to Australian English (iOS 7.0 and later); if the device's language is set to Nederlands, you will hear Dutch in Touch-Words and Touch-Animals, unless the region format is set to België, in which case you will hear Flemish (Vlaams).

To use a language included in any of these apps, but not fully supported by iOS (currently, this means Albanian, Bulgarian, Hindi, Luxembourgish and Welsh in Touch-Words and in Touch-Animals), or to override the default language without changing the language for the whole device, you can select a language explicitly for the individual app. To do this, again use Apple's Settings app, but instead of going to Settings > General, go to the Settings for the app (e.g. Touch-Words). There you will find a Language option, and you can change this from Default to any one of the app's supported languages.

Underneath the Language option, in all the apps except Touch-Numbers, there is a Capital Letters option: turning this on will cause the written words under each picture to be displayed in CAPITAL LETTERS.
