Communication on the go
We understand that you are dependent on your device and that you need to be able to communicate “right there and then”. That is why we spend quite some time to help speed up your communication. We do this through our symbols, phrases, special keyboards and more.
Communication for symbol users
For those unable to read or write, Tobii Dynavox Communicator 5 lets you use symbols or pictures to support your communication. Symbol pages from the Sono Suite are included and are a great way to begin using the software. With the built-in grammar functions, even symbol users can conjugate verbs and adjectives, thereby aiding language learning.
Included with Communicator 5 are over 15,000 communication SymbolStix symbols that enable people of all ages to communicate clearly and understandably. Communicator 5 also supports other standard-format communication symbol and picture libraries, such as Picture Communication Symbols (PCS). You can also import your own photos and pictures from the computer or use the built in camera to take snapshots.
Customize and edit your buttons freely
The quick menu lets you edit buttons fast and easy. You can hide/unhide certain buttons, providing a great learning pathway for emerging communicators. Additionally, you are able to adjust the button font size all across the whole pageset, making the text gradually more important.
Advantages for literate users
For literate users, a built-in dictionary, frequency-based word prediction, as well as access to the Windows desktop and applications helps improve accuracy. By using “My Phrases”, you can also store and quickly access commonly used expressions and phrases, based on categories such as “at work”, and “at the movies”.
Convenient text communication and high quality voices
Click on the message window or speech button and a clear and understandable voice, specific to your language, age , and gender, speaks. Communicator 5 comes with high quality voices from Acapela and even lets you speak-as-you-type.
Download and organize your pagesets
You are able to move old Communicator 4 pagesets over to Communicator 5 or get inspired by our community PageSet Central. There you can download pagesets from other users, parents, special education teachers and SLPs for free. Once you have imported your pagesets you can select, copy and delete multiple pages within the Edit Page Set Mode.
Type more efficiently
In Communicator 5 there is a consistent keyboard layout regardless of which page set you are in. Using the most comfortable keyboard layout will help you type more efficiently.
Additional features are:
- Generate an entire keyboard using smart buttons. This lets you easily change keyboard language or shift between QWERTY, ABC or scan-optimized layouts.
- The quick talk feature enables you to spontaneously reply to a question or conversation while writing a longer text with the keyboard. After the quick reply, you can return to your text document and continue writing.
- Communicator 5 keyboards incorporate auditory feedback when a key is clicked and the possibility to customize the dwell time, letting you type faster, or slower, should you want to.
Dramatically increase typing speeds
Increase your typing speed with the brand new function “dwell-free typing ”. Simply let your gaze sweep over the letters that form the words you want to write. With great accuracy, Communicator 5 knows what you want to write.
