    Comments/N.B

    • There is only one version for UK, US, Aus

    • 3-4 levels of difficulty, depending on exercises

    • Very large bank of over 13,500 items

    • Reliant on the user self monitoring and knowing whether they named the item correctly or not.

    There is no facility for recording speech attempts and the app itself does not determine level of accuracy. This app would therefore not be appropriate for independent use by someone with poor self monitoring
