About Tiga Talk!

Tiga Talk, a one-of-a-kind app that has been developed with licensed speech and language pathologists to help children who are in the beginning stages of speaking learn how to make  23 core phonetic sounds through playful voice-controlled games that can improve speech clarity and articulation. Tiga Talk is a confidence-building app. Even if you try making the sound, the game stays positive, never criticizing children for making the “wrong” sound. By encouraging children to make sounds to drive cars, launch rockets, and pop balloons, this interactive game will have them “SP-ing” and “CH-ing” in no time at all.

Tiga Talk is a truly incomparable experience for children and adults alike. It is also the first app for children being translated into Canadian Cree, to help families preserve the language by introducing it to children as they are learning their first words.

Gameplay rewards are based entirely on participation, not accuracy, so the child is constantly getting positive feedback as long as they are trying to make sounds!

The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch (2nd, 3rd and 4th generation), and iPad. Requires iOS 3.1.3 or later.
