DEDHAM, Mass.--()--Today Tobii ATI announced a new recorded speech device, the Tobii S32, which allows users a way to communicate by activating pre-recorded messages at the touch of a finger.
The Tobii S32 is an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device that plays back pre-recorded messages, sounds or IR-signals simply by touching a sheet of printed symbols, pictures, or scenes. The messages and sounds are recorded either directly onto the Tobii S32 or via Tobii SymbolMate™ software. With Tobii SymbolMate a user can create page sets and print them out on any printer.
Touch and Scan
The Tobii S32 comes in two different models, Touch and Scan. The Tobii S32 Touch is targeted specifically towards individuals who have the ability to touch pictures and symbols. The Tobii S32 Scan is made for individuals who have difficulty using their hands to touch the pictures and symbols by using switches to make their choice in the grids or scenes.
“We set out to design something that takes recorded speech devices to the next level. We have seen that there is room for a device that offers great sound, long recording and battery times and is rugged enough for everyday usage. The Tobii S32 is a communication device that is easy to use,” says Tara Rudnicki, President of Tobii ATI North America.
Packed with features
Both versions are packed with features, some completely new to the AAC market:
The Tobii S32 Touch is available now. The Tobii S32 Scan will be available later in the fall of 2010. For more information visit us on the web at www.tobiis32.com/
