Up and running in minutes
Get started in no time, with the built-in setup guide. Start by selecting one of the predefined user levels, a voice, and a desired input method. Communicator will then create a home page that is pre-populated with industry best practice techniques, clinical, robust, and research-based content, as well as relevant pagesets.
For personalization and growth, you can remove or edit existing pagesets to perfectly match your skills and desires. You can also change the background color of the homepage to better suit your personality as well as easily modify your settings.
Supports all input methods
Use Communicator 5 regardless of your preferred input method. The software supports direct input via touch screen, which has been significantly improved with Windows 8/10, as well as mouse click, mouse dwell, joystick, or head mouse. You can also use gaze interaction together with the Tobii Dynavox I-Series and I-Series+.
If you require feedback before making a selection, use auditory prompts, and if your personal needs change over the day, simply switch between input methods. For example, use touch input in the morning and gaze interaction in the afternoon.
Ideal for single and multiple users
With support for an unlimited number of user profiles on the same device, Communicator 5 is ideal for schools, assessment centers, and care facilities where several users might share the same system. It also works well for single users who might want to have different settings depending on the time of day.
Speak with your recorded messages
With Communicator 5.4 you can now use all kinds of recorded messages from Tobii Dynavox Message Banking, as well as external libraries, to be spoken out if the content corresponds to the recorded message. This allows you to communicate with your own voice - even if you have lost the ability to speak. When the option “Use Recorded Messages” is enabled, the message windows content is spoken with your recorded words.
