Tobii Dynavox, the global leader in eye tracking and touch based communication devices, announced today that Speech Case with iPad was selected as a CES 2019 Innovation Award Honoree in the “Tech For A Better World” product category. The award is only designated to the highest-rated product or technology in each category.
The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products. The Innovation Awards program recognizes top honorees among 29 award categories, including “Tech For A Better World”, which honors products that provide positive societal and/or global impact.
Speech Case with iPad sets a new standard for delivering speech generation on an Apple iOS platform for non-verbal individuals with disabilities. Together with an iPad and the industry-leading communication app, Snap + Core First, Speech Case forms a true iOS-based speech tablet. Speech Case has powerful, integrated speakers for exceptionally clear output, ergonomic and durable design, access for switch use, and can also be mounted to a wheelchair.
“We are very excited and grateful to receive this honor,” said Fredrik Ruben, President of Tobii Dynavox. “We strongly believe in everyone’s right of having a voice, to gain independence and express what they think and how they feel. Speech Case with iPad is a great example of this and how we combine our technology with other manufacturers to develop the best possible solutions for our users.”
Tobii Dynavox has previously received the honorable award for PCEye Mini, the smallest and most robust eye tracker on the market for assistive technology, and for Indi, a tablet designed for individuals of all ages with speech and language disabilities.
Speech Case with iPad will be displayed January 8-11, 2019 at CES 2019 in the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 1, Booth 21618.
