Augmentative Communication Computers
Computers of various kinds:
peletKoli072009-1
CF-19 Toughbook models.
These computers are intended for use by augmentative alternative communication (AAC) users with various disabilities, including people with autism.

CF-W7 computers for computer-literate users

H1 lightweight Toughbook computers with built-in touch screens.

The Toughbook model is built to withstand blows, moisture, vibrations, dust, extreme temperatures, and nearly anything else. The computers are loaded with a variety of hardware and software programs that transform them into talking computers.

The programs for construction of communication boards include: Clicker, Symbol Writing and Grid 2.

peletKoli072009-2The Grid 2 program is an AAC system that enables construction of computerized communication boards and their connection to a speaking system. The system is intended both for users who can read and write as well as users who communicate through symbols. The program facilitates speech both through synthetic speech programs (Text-to-Speech) as well as through use of pre-recorded words.

The “Hebrew-speaking” Grid 2 package, an added component to the original program, contains tens of thousands of recorded words, including inflection of verbs, nouns, and adjectives in the Hebrew language.

The program provides a variety of basic computer services within the sheltered environment of the Grid screens. These services include word processing, e-mail, Internet Browser, audio (music), video screening, and more.

In addition, the Grid enables control of standard computer programs such as Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, and Messenger. All of these services are controlled by use of pointers and switches. From the system screens, the user can control various remote control devices and apparatuses. The program can be used to control electronic entertainment devices, telephone, lighting and other electrical equipment.

In addition, the computerized platform contains a speech engine in Hebrew.
