Text communication

Literate communicators can express themselves more naturally with a built-in dictionary, word and phrase prediction, stored phrases and access to many high-quality synthetic voice options. It's also possible to record your own voice with message banking, for the ability to say "I love you" with emotion. Whichever voice you choose, you can project it as you type for conversations in real time.

Symbol communication

Symbol communicators can develop literacy skills with access to core words, topic-based vocabulary and a keyboard to encourage exploration of letters, words and sounds, with the ability to delete symbols as literacy skills develop.
