Avaz is currently available in different languages as different apps. 


Apart from these different language apps, Avaz offers limited support for many more languages, as specified by iOS by adding the keyboards and voices in Avaz settings - Click here to see the List of languages supported by Avaz (keyboard and voice)This is applicable for all versions of Avaz AAC (subscription and Lifetime editions) for versions 4.0 and above. 


This provides "limited support" as it does not change the language of the app, but you can change the different words in the vocabulary in the picture mode and also the spoken voice (audio) of these words to the same  language. The rest of the app and the app keyboard remain unchanged, in English.


You can set up the Edit item keyboard and Voice settings to a different language. The Edit item keyboard allows you to edit the English words in the Picture vocabulary, and convert it to a different language; and you can set the Voice to the same language so that you can hear the word spoken with the correct pronunciation. 


Avaz supports the Apple-supported languages for the above. For the languages set, you can add new words / edit existing words in the new language and also get audio (text-to-speech) in the new language voice.
