DynaVox Inc. Key Developments

DynaVox Unveils Dynavox T15, Powerful, 15-Inch Dynamic Display Tablet for Individuals with Advanced Access Needs, Visual Impairments or Physical Limitations

DynaVox Systems LLC unveiled the DynaVox T15, a powerful, 15-inch dynamic display tablet for individuals with advanced access needs, visual impairments or physical limitations. As the world's larger dedicated speech-generating tablet, the T15 joins the DynaVox T10 as part of the groundbreaking T-Series suite of DynaVox touch-based speech-generating devices intended for those with aphasia, autism, cerebral palsy, cortical visual impairment, early ALS, locked-in syndrome and stroke. As a purpose-built speech-generating device, every feature of the T15 has been carefully considered to provide quick, simple communication and ease of use. The device combines a large, vibrant display with high-contrast PCS symbols to enhance clarity and target size for those with visual limitations such as cortical visual impairment. Equipped with fully integrated switch ports, a capacitive touch screen and a full-sized USB port, the T15 can support multiple access methods, allowing users to communicate through touch, scanning and head mouse input. DynaVox Compass, the innovative, clinician-researched and clinician-designed communication software that ships with all T-Series devices, has also been updated to better accommodate users' needs. Compass 2.0 features two new pagesets and new communication tools, and seamlessly connects with free personal myDynaVox account, providing the ability to share content among family members, members of the support team and other users, as well as the ability to back up and restore personal communication content. The All Access pageset includes a comprehensive vocabulary that can be easily adapted to any individual's communication ability with easy message on a page, efficient retrieval and editing of previously spoken messages, and a wizard to walk individuals through selecting an access method. The Navigator pageset is designed to support the needs of literate individuals who primarily want to use a keyboard to communicate. For customers seeking a more compact, touch-based communication device, DynaVox also announced the availability of the Tobii M-8 with DynaVox Compass software. Compact and lightweight, the 8-inch screen of the Tobii M-8 makes it the ideal solution for both children and adults who want a tool that is truly portable and convenient for school, work or home. The M-8's protective case, detachable shoulder strap and built-in table stand add convenience and portability to the device.

DynaVox Announces the Release of PODD Pagesets for All Current Versions of DynaVox Compass

DynaVox Systems, LLC announced the much anticipated release of Pragmatic Organization Dynamic Display (PODD) pagesets for DynaVox Compass. PODD for DynaVox Compass provides multiple options to suit the communication, language, sensory and physical access requirements of different individuals. PODD is available for both the DynaVox T10 and the DynaVox Compass App. The DynaVox Compass communication software is the industry standard for augmentative communication software, building on DynaVox's proud legacy of proven, research-based, and clinician-developed communication content designed to help individuals grow, learn, and achieve their goals. The DynaVox Compass App offers similar powerful software for individuals seeking communication solutions on their own personal iPad or other general-purpose tablet device. Both the DynaVox T10 tablet and the DynaVox Compass App use the power of cloud computing, providing an individual and their entire support team the ability to work collaboratively to seamlessly share communication pages, find lesson plans, watch videos, read research reviews and share practical ideas for using their new DynaVox solution. In addition, users of these cloud services will have the piece of mind of knowing all their configuration settings, individual pagesets, files, etc. are stored in a secure, hardened, high-availability environment should their DynaVox or other tablet be lost, stolen or damaged, or otherwise need to be replaced.
