2. Choosing a Language

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-Colors, 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 set for your mobile device in the Android Settings app (typically in its Language and input section). So, for instance, if the language is set to "Español (España)", 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.

Note to English speakers outside the US: there are 3 English voices built into Touch-Words and Touch-Animals (Australian, British and American), and two built into the other Touch apps (British and American). If your device doesn't allow you to select the one you want in its Settings app, you must set it explicitly in the touch app, as explained below.

To use a language included in any of these apps, but not fully supported by Android (currently, this includes Albanian, 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, while running the touch app, tap the device's physical menu button or the overflow button at the right of the action bar, and then tap Settings. From there, tap Language, and select the desired language.

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.
