Message Bank instructions

Getting Started with Message Banking™ 
 
The Message Bank is a joint project between Boston Children’s Hospital Department of Otolaryngology and Tobii Dynavox with a goal of providing a free and open message bank for people at risk of losing their voice.   This message bank system will guide people through the message banking process, help organize the messages, store the messages until they are needed, and provide ways to download the messages for use on any systems that can play back those messages.  Use of the system is free to the user. Storage of the messages is free. Downloading stored messages for personal use is free.
