NOVA chat 8 Dedicated Plus (Medicare Model)

Saltillo Corporation is pleased to announce the NOVA chat 8 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. The Dedicated Plus model for NOVA chat 8 also includes a shoulder strap for hands-free transporting and a carrying case.

NOVA chat 8 Dedicated Plus is a dedicated speech device, designed solely for the purpose of speech generation. Like all "Chats," NOVA chat 8 Dedicated Plus offers a durable yet sleek portable design, with features that include an 8" display, switch scanning, IVONA 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.

We are excited to introduce Ivona© voices which include a child's voice, a teen's voice, as well as numerous American, British English, & Australian adult options. Acapela™ voices are also available as an option. Sound clarity of NOVA chat 8 Dedicated Plus outdoes that of any portable dedicated speech device of its size

NOVA chat 8 Dedicated Plus comes with an 8" screen and weighs only 1.3 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.
