For emerging communicators to literate adults, Communicator 5 comes with language content designed to match every AAC need., You can customize content through easy-to-use editing tools and communicate via text or symbols, as well as high quality speech for face-to-face communication.
With a modern user interface, improved workflows, smart functions and easy access for caregivers, you can keep language up to date and communicate more efficiently than ever before.
Designed for the Tobii Dynavox I-Series (I-13 & I-16) and Indi, Communicator works on Windows computers running Windows 7 or newer. It is not yet compatible with the next generation Windows Control (2.0). But it is coming soon and we will make sure you hear about it.
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 page sets.
For personalization and growth, you can remove or edit existing page sets 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.
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.
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 great for single users who might want to have different settings depending on the time of day.
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. Say “How are you doing?” with your own voice, even after you lose it - through Communicator. When the option “Use Recorded Messages” is enabled, the message windows content is spoken with your recorded words.
Not only does Communicator 5 give you access to the functionality within the software itself, but it also gives you control over the Windows environment. This means that you can control Windows applications that are not part of Communicator via the Communicator Windows keyboard and Tobii Dynavox Gaze Interaction Software.
