Tobii ATI, Dedham, Mass, has introduced a new recorded speech device, the Tobii S32, which allows users a way to communicate by activating pre-recorded messages at the touch of a finger.

The Tobii S32 is an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device that plays back pre-recorded messages, sounds or IR-signals simply by touching a sheet of printed symbols, pictures, or scenes. The messages and sounds are recorded either directly onto the Tobii S32 or via Tobii SymbolMatesoftware. With Tobii SymbolMate a user can create page sets and print them out on any printer.

The Tobii S32 comes in two different models, Touch and Scan. The Tobii S32 Touch is targeted specifically towards individuals who have the ability to touch pictures and symbols. The Tobii S32 Scan is made for individuals who have difficulty using their hands to touch the pictures and symbols by using switches to make their choice in the grids or scenes.
