English/Spanish America NovaChat 5 Dedicated Plus (Medicare Model)

Saltillo Corporation is pleased to announce the Spanish/America NOVA chat 5 Dedicated Plus

The guidelines for Medicare in many states require that devices purchased with funds from this organization are "dedicated" devices. Dedicated devices are devices that can only be used as communication devices, i.e. no other applications can be run on the devices. The Dedicated Plus Chat Models meet the funding requirements of this organization.

Dedicated Plus models come with a three year warranty. Dedicated Plus model for NOVA chat 5 also includes a shoulder strap and waist belt for hands-free transporting.

NOVA chat 5 Dedicated Plus is our newest dedicated speech device, designed solely for the purpose of speech generation. Like all NOVA Chats, the NOVA chat 5 Dedicated Plus is now available in an English/Spanish America version, which offers Spanish and bilingual vocabulary files. The NOVA chat 5 Dedicated Plus also offers a durable yet sleek portable design, with features that include a 5" display, multiple positioning, switch scanning, Ivona or Acapela speech synthesizer, and many other Chat features.

A variety of vocabulary configurations provides options for each individual that uses our "Chat" systems. NOVA chat includes thousands of SymbolStix™ symbols, and PCS™ symbols can be added.

This new English/Spanish America NOVA Chat 5 Dedicated Plus gives you an option of using either Acapela or Ivona voices, which both offer bilingual speech capabilities.

Important Note: Only one synthesizer must be chosen at time of purchase for the English/Spanish America systems. If Acapela is chosen there will be an additional charge and you must choose whether you would like a male or female voice.

NOVA chat 5 Dedicated Plus comes with a 5" screen and weighs only .55 lbs. The capacitive touchscreen is accessible by finger touch or an included stylus.

The rubberized protective shield not only protects the system, but now comes in four fun colors to give it an up-to-date style. No need to choose just one color, as all four color shields are provided with each system. Blue, green and purple offer youthful, fun options while a gray option provides a more sophisticated look.

Pre-Loaded Vocabulary:

The English/Spanish America NOVA Chat 5 Dedicated Plus contains all of the original NOVA Chat English Vocabulary files and 8 English/Spanish America Vocabulary files.

WordPower 48 Español is a new AAC vocabulary created for the NOVA chat device. Designed to be intuitive and easy to use, WordPower Español meets the communication needs of a wide group of individuals in Spanish speaking cultures. The vocabulary includes easy to access basic communication for beginning communicators, as well as sophisticated language and grammar for individuals with advanced cognitive and linguistic abilities.

WordPower48 Español Basico is a new addition to the WordPower Español vocabularies. It was designed with early language learners in mind, providing ample picture support and novel structures to facilitate expressive language development. Core vocabulary is embedded within the category and activity pages, allowing easy generation of language from the main core page as well as within tropic-based pages. Core words remain consistent in terms of placement and access, providing a natural bridge between core and fringe words.

MultiChat 15 Spanish is based on the student version developed for the NOVA Chat devices and is very similar to the English MultiChat 15 Student file. However, due to the differences in the two languages some changes have been made to accurately represent each language. For example, Spanish nouns have a gender (masculine or feminine) whereas English nouns do not. In addition, Spanish has a number of different ways to use articles such as “the” that are not consistent with English. The MulitChat 15 Spanish file is developed to be universal so that it is appropriate for many Spanish speakers. Therefore, definitely take advantage of the editing capability to make regional specifications.

MultiChat 15 Bilingual is exactly the same as the MultiChat 15 Spanish file except that the label on the buttons has both the English and Spanish words. Please note, when the Nova device speaks the word and/or phrases, it is only spoken in Spanish.

Vocab PC is a direct translation of the English version. VocabPC was designed by Gail Van Tatenhove, PA, MS, CCC-SLP, for adults and adolescents with developmental disabilities. Vocabulary in VocabPC is arranged as carrier phrases, interactive sentences, activity vocabulary and naming words. VocabPC uses a 12 location page layout.

Tecado is a Spanish keyboard.

Sin sintaxis 4x4 English & Spanish consists of categories of words with a symbol on each button. This file is intended for children without the ability to construct sentences yet.

Sintaxis 4x5 English & Spanish is intended for children that are beginning to create simple sentences. Each page contains 20 buttons of words with pictures. Words are organized into categories with some core words for creating beginning sentences.
