Numerous keyboard pages with and without spelling prediction are included in the pre-stored vocabulary files. Plus models also include abbreviation-expansion, a feature that allows you to encode a word, phrase or sentence under a short sequence of letters. Plus models provide the capability to load and save text files. Plus models are "open", meaning you can also run other Android applications on these devices. Plus models come with a one year warranty.
The new Chat Fusion 8 offers front and rear cameras to enable device users to customize pages, extended battery life, and multiple access methods including Chat Point (optional headpointing), and single or dual switch scanning. A wheelchair mounting plate has also been included for your convenience.
Chat Fusion comes with an 8" screen and weighs only 1.9 lbs making the device easy to hold. A stand and handle are built into the design and a shoulder strap or waist belt are available options for hands-free transporting.
A docking station with wireless charging capabilities, and a screen touch wake-up setting allow those without fine motor skills to easily use the device without assistance.
This new English/Spanish America Chat Fusion 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.
The same vocabulary configurations that you have grown to know and love on the NOVA chat provides options for each individual that uses English/Spanish America Chat Fusion 8 Plus. Thousands of SymbolStix™ symbols are included, and PCS™ symbols can be added.
The English/Spanish America Chat Fusion contains all of the original Chat Fusion English Vocabulary files and 9 English/Spanish America Vocabulary files.
WordPower 48 Español is designed to be intuitive and easy to use, and 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 recent 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.
WordPower60 Español Básico is a new addition to the WordPower Español vocabularies, and it is comparable in terms of content and design to the English WordPower60 Basic vocabulary. 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. Early literacy is enhanced through the use of pages designed around several popular children’s books. A low-tech communication board is included within the vocabulary file that can be printed as an alternative communication support.
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.
