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 12 also includes a shoulder strap for hands-free transporting and a carrying case.
NOVA chat 12 has the largest display of any Chat dedicated speech devices. It was designed for the sole purpose of speech generation and is useful only for people with speech disabilities. Like all "Chats," NOVA chat 12 offers a durable yet sleek portable design, with features that include a 12.2" 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 12 outdoes that of any portable dedicated speech device of its size.
NOVA chat 12 Dedicated Plus comes with a 12.2" screen and weighs only 2.85 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.
Various page sets targeting individuals with different communication needs are included in the NOVA Chat:
- 4 Basic
