Tobii Dynavox Communicator 5 is a comprehensive AAC software that provides a voice and independence to those in need of alternative communication solutions. It offers a wide array of communication pages and on-screen keyboards as well as easyto-use tools for e-mail, text messaging, telephony, environmental control and much more.
The software has language content designed to match all AAC needs from emerging communication to literate adults. The user may communicate via text or symbols, and generate either synthesized (computer voice) or digitized (recorded voice) speech for face-to-face communication. The content may be adopted for a specific individual through easy-to-use editing tools. There is a comprehensive editing mode that allows caregivers to create custom pages.
Communicator 5 can be used with Eye gaze, switches, touch or all widely used alternative pointing device. While being specifically designed for the Tobii Dynavox I-Series+, Tobii M8 and the Tobii Eye Mobile, Communicator 5 works on any Windows computer running Windows 7 or newer, such as the Microsoft Surface.
