Powerful enough to fit all cognitive needs from the most basic to the
most sophisticated, the e-talk features dynamic screen software that
allows a custom communication system to be easily created for nearly any
user. Featuring the popular Mayer-Johnson picture symbol system, the
dynamic screen software facilitates the creation of communication
screens that flow from one to another allowing smooth creation of verbal
communication. Pictures can be mixed with text and systems can be
created ranging from completely picture based to completely text based
or any combination in between.
Speech output can be text-to-speech, using either DECtalk®
or any of the many Lernout & Hauspie languages, or high quality digital
recordings. The volume is loud. The text-to-speech is outstanding. The
recorded sound quality is awesome! This speech device is meant to be

No language barriers. Because you can digitally record
anyone's voice (man, woman or child), the e-talk can speak in any
The e-talk has two remarkable displays to choose from. The black and
white (monochrome) display is transflective, meaning it can be viewed in
the brightest sunlight. For indoor, or nighttime viewing, the monochrome
display is backlit by super-bright LED's. The color display features a
high-brightness TFT screen with a wide viewing angle.
Input is by touch screen or scanning using either pictures or letters
or both. The e-talk touch screen is programmed to accept finger touch.
The user does not have to use his fingernail or a tool to get an input.

VARIABLE LENGTH MESSAGES
Each key can record a message of any length, whether using synthetic
speech (DECtalk®) or digital recording. People don't speak in
4-second sound bites. Why should the e-talk? The e-talk comes with 32
minutes of digital recording time which can be used to record voice
messages or even to record music! And, if 32 minutes isn't enough,
additional digital record time can be purchased. Naturally, there is no
limit to synthetic speech.
FLEXIBILITY AND EASE OF USE
The e-talk is shipped ready to use, with a communication system
designed to introduce the feeling of the e-talk. It includes some
picture symbol communication pages, some letter based communication
pages and access to the more than 3600 Mayer-Johnson picture symbols.
Pages can be created in four key layouts: 2x2, 2x6, 4x6, and 4x8. Key
layouts can vary on a page-by- page basis.
BACKUP AND UPGRADING
The e-talk's message library is easily saved to your PC, and
software upgrades can be downloaded from the internet to your PC and
