Assistiveware Legacy Products
If you're looking for SwitchXS and VisioVoice, Assistiveware has discontinued these products. Apple has incorporated mostly equivalent products within the MacOS operating system. In the case of SwitchXS the feature is called Switch Control and for VisioVoice they are called VoiceOver and Zoom. Apple does not offer an equivalent to Proloquo, but the Mac has never proven to be a popular augmentative communication device.
Assistiveware believes that the capability added to the MacOS built-in keyboard in the next MacOS release will make KeyStrokes mostly redundant. Therefore, Assistiveware has announced that KeyStrokes will be retired after Apple releases MacOS 10.13; which is anticipated for Fall 2017.
Further, Apple has announced that, "macOS High Sierra (10.13) will be the last macOS release to support 32-bit apps without compromise." ALL macOS applications that Origin Instruments has ever distributed for Assistiveware are 32-bit apps. macOS 10.14 is expected to be released in the Fall of 2018.
We will continue to offer support for Assistiveware products on compatible versions of macOS.
