PRE-LOADED VOCABULARY:

WordPower 48 Español is a new AAC vocabulary created for the NovaChat 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 NovaChat 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.

The Plus models are designed for individuals with existing or emerging literacy skills. In addition to all of the features of the Standard models, Plus models come with a 60,000 word dictionary.

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 also provide the capability to load and save text files.
