NOVA chat 8 Plus is a communication system that offers the well-known Chat software on an Android™ platform. Like all "Chats," NOVA chat 8 Plus offers a durable yet sleek portable design, with features that include an 8" display, switch scanning, Social Chat, 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.
The Plus model is designed for individuals with existing or emerging literacy skills. In addition to all of the features of the Standard model, 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. Plus models are "open", meaning you can also run other Android applications on these devices. Plus models come with a one year warranty.
We are excited to introduce Ivona© voices which include a child's voice, a teen's voice, as well as numerous American & British English adult options. Acapela™ voices are available for NOVA chat 8 as an option. Sound clarity of NOVA chat 8 Plus outdoes that of any portable communication system of its size.
NOVA chat 8 Plus comes with an 8" screen and weighs only 1.35 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.
