Two DynaVox T10s


Features of the DynaVox T10

The DynaVox T10 is a thin, portable, lightweight tablet running an Android operating system which supports the DynaVox Compass software. A Compass app is also available and can be loaded onto an iPad or Windows 8 tablet. It’s a fully customisable AAC app that uses the Picture Communication Symbols (PCS) we all know and love from other DynaVox devices and the ever-popular Boardmaker software.

Charlene recently reviewed the DynaVox T10 and has shared her thoughts in two recent posts on the Spectronics Blog titled "The DynaVox T10: a new tablet device for AAC" and "DynaVox Compass app – AAC heading in a new direction". In response to these posts, early adopters of the T10 have made the following comments on the blog.

“My kiddo is 16 and nonverbal and he loves the Compass software and has already been communicating more and more.”

“It is not as hard as you think to edit, sometimes I’ve edited a button in less than thirty seconds on the fly.”

Charlene will show you the different pre-programmed Communication Pagesets including add-ons for PODD and Gateway. The varied Communication Pagesets can be customised for use with all ages and abilities including people with autism, cerebral palsy, dyspraxia, Down Syndrome, motor neurone disease or other neurological, developmental and communication impairments. Those who have experienced a stroke or traumatic brain injury can benefit from using the T10 as well. Charlene will demonstrate the Compass editing software and the ease with which you can individualise the pages for each different AAC user.

Whilst it won’t be a hands-on session, you can follow along by bringing your own iPad or Windows 8 tablet with the DynaVox Compass app 30-day trial pre-loaded. Instructions for accessing and downloading the app can be found at mydynavox.com
