It’s been a revolutionary decade for our industry, thanks in part to the growing popularity of off-the-shelf tablets and the abundance of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) apps to go with them. Just seven years ago, who would have imagined this dramatic change—or all those choices?
In the midst of it all, those seeking AAC solutions are looking for something affordable, convenient, reliable and, at the same time, visually appealing. To meet these requirements, people often opt for a popular tablet, an assortment of apps, and maybe a few accessories, for their speech solution. However, what they usually end up with is a pieced-together solution that only allows them to go so far on their communication journey.
We’re ready to take you way beyond a pieced-together solution to a place where there’s no looking back with the newest addition to our family of products.
Meet the Tobii Dynavox Indi.
Indi is the world’s first all-in-one, consumer-focused speech tablet. You can use Indi right away, no matter where you’re at in your communication journey. Virtually no setup is involved. Indi is designed specifically for AAC and can benefit people with conditions ranging from autism, Down syndrome and intellectual disabilities to aphasia and bulbar-onset ALS in its early stages.
Roughly the same size and shape of today’s popular off-the-shelf tablets, Indi is light, sleek and easy on the eyes.Beneath its outer beauty lies its robust software, Snap + Core First, providing a symbol-based communication solution that so many have been waiting for.Users’ parents or other loved ones, teachers, therapists, caregivers and friends are sure to be just as excited about the arrival of this game-changing technology. An utterly intuitive speech tablet, Indi redefines freedom of self-expression for those with complex communication needs. Indi knows its users and doesn’t mess around when it comes to making their communication journey possible.
While meeting their unique needs and abilities, Indi empowers everyone who uses it to fit in more than they stand out and be noticed for the right reasons. With its pearly white frame and rich voice options, Indi is indeed a standout. But what distinguishes Indi from other AAC solutions goes deeper than appearances. Outstanding benefits and features of this one-of-a-kind tablet include:
Superior, forward-facing speakers. All of us are meant to be heard clearly the moment we speak. With its slim and finely integrated speakers, Indi makes this happen for its users and their communication partners every time.
Built-in infrared capabilities. These are like keys to independence, opening everyday opportunities for Indi users to take control of their environment, whether they wish to turn lights on or off, open doors, watch TV or play music.
