Tobii Dynavox, the global leader in Assistive Technology for communication, announced today the launch of Indi™, the world’s first all-in-one speech tablet for non-verbal communicators, directly targeted to the consumer market. Priced at only $999, the Windows 10 based Indi with its industry leading software Snap represents a disruption in the market for touch-based speech devices.
Tobii Dynavox Indi is the ideal communication device for non-verbal or verbally limited users. Its fully integrated and outward facing speakers provide exceptionally loud and clear output, ensuring a powerful voice that is heard in any environment. Indi is primarily accessed through its touch screen but can also be controlled by a switch or a head mouse. The key user groups for the product are individuals with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome and intellectual disabilities.
Indi comes bundled with Snap, the all new Tobii Dynavox software, designed for intuitive and engaging symbol-based communication. At the heart of Snap is Core First®, Tobii Dynavox’s systematic delivery of core word vocabulary, which is based on the proven research by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Core First systematically helps users build their vocabulary and communication skills and evolves with them as they grow.
“The Indi is a beautifully designed speech tablet that anyone would be proud to carry” said Fredrik Ruben, President of Tobii Dynavox. “We want to deliver a complete solution that is super easy to start using and that grows and adapts with the needs of symbol based communicators.” he continued. “Together with the full ecosystem of support like Pathways for Core First, we can now offer an unmatched program to enable verbally limited individuals to gain literacy and life changing independence.”
Indi comes with everything needed to start right out of the box, including a two-year manufacturer’s warranty and 90 days of telephone support. It addresses all communication needs and includes additional features such as environmental controls (ECU), social media, email, music as well as access to thousands of Windows applications. A wide array of customized accessories such as carrying handle and protective casing are also available.
Indi can be ordered today in select markets via www.tobiidynavox.com or a network of Tobii Dynavox sales consultants and resellers.
