Sym Systems, the parent company of The Great Talking Box Company was one of the first companies to manufacture of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) products.   Starting with the SpeechPac, EvalPac, and AllTalk, we have, for over 25 years, have offered solutions for individuals with speech and learning difficulties.  Our speech generating devices, using either text to speech or digitally recorded speech help those with ALS, cerebral palse, stroke, brain injury.   These devices include Easytalk, Digicom 2000 and the eTalk and eTalk-GT  Nearly all of our devices are eligible for medicare, Medicaid, or insurance.   

And now we present our newest device, the eTalk-GT


We call it the GT because, while the case looks the same as the original eTalk, there are subtle difference to accommodate a more powerful microprocessor, an even brighter screen, a USB port to allow attachment of a mouse, keyboard and the Tracker from Madentec a faster, meaner machine!
