5 SymbolMate and S32 Low Tech Devices

6 What is the Tobii S32 A light, strong, customizable static screen device Keyguards in 1, 2, 4, 8,16, 32 Button Layout Side cover colors can be customized Two different models: Touch and Scan Motivating to Use – IR and Toy Interface Recording time of over 60 hours – record and transfer audio, songs, etc. Six easily interchangeable keyguard layouts with 192 levels available Runs on AA batteries and last several months or more The S32 is a strong but light static screen communication device. All the different key guard sizes are automatically provided in the box, so the user can transition and grow to use different sizes if appropriate. Users can start with one button visual scene displays which are great for putting objects in context, and some will move towards a 32 button layout for a wider choice of messages. Side colors come in Red, Blue, Yellow and Black - and all are automatically received with every order. It’s a great way for users to personalize their device. The S32 is the latest tool for emergent communicators. Users can start on 2 buttons, and grow towards using more. With all the different key guard sizes provided, they can grow at their own pace, and new pages to suit their current needs can be made quickly, and keep users motivated. With around 200 levels provided for recording audio and IR or toy signals, the device has more than enough capacity to keep users interested and support a wide range of communication topics. 60 hours of recording time is more than enough to provide the user with the tools they need to engage with their world. And using ordinary double A batteries, they’ll last for months under normal use – and are cheap and easy to replace when necessary.
