TextSpeak Launches 1st Affordable Talking Keyboard

Giving a voice to people, places and things, TextSpeak™ today introduced a sub $500 line of talking keyboards.
WESTPORT, CT – August 15, 2012 – Giving a voice to people, places and things, TextSpeak™ today introduced a sub $500 line of talking keyboards. The TextSpeak TS series Alternative Augmentative Communication (AAC) speech generating keyboards are simple to use and work right out of the box. This unique solution includes a combination of a wireless keyboard and portable battery powered speaker. Working in tandem, typed text from the keyboard is transmitted and spoken directly from the wireless speaker.

The TS Series talking keyboards offer the special needs and medical community a new solution that requires no technical ability, maintenance or training. Ideally suited for hospitals, the TS Keyboards serve trauma and postoperative patients (i.e. laryngectomy), or anyone who needs a permanent solution offering synthesized speech (i.e., stroke, aphasia, throat cancer). They are helpful for the elderly at home or in nursing care, are offered by hospitals for outpatient transition and are also available as DME (Durable Medical Equipment) in VA hospitals throughout the United States.

The TextSpeak keyboards are specifically designed to address three important patient needs:
• Simplicity - Controls limited to ON/OFF and Volume, works out of the box
• Affordability - First keyboard based speech generating solution priced below $500
• Typing Skills - Keyboards range from mini to very large key (specifically offered to assist mobility impaired patients).

The product’s unique advantages:
• Standard voices include male and female genders, in both English and Spanish, all with unlimited vocabulary.
• Works over speakerphones to support calls to friends and family.
• Has flexible keyboard choices to fit individual typing skills and needs.
• Lightweight and portable. Uses low cost, standard batteries, or included AC adaptor.

"We have introduced the TS Series to meet needs of our customers at a fraction of the cost of competitive solutions. This allows us to put TextSpeak TS in the hands of the uninsured and elderly who would otherwise have no solution to simply talk." says TextSpeak president Nancy Wolfe. "By making an affordable product and offering flexible keyboard choices we are helping speech impaired individuals communicate far more efficiently. For some, we offer their first opportunity to simply say “hello” or answer their own telephones for the first time.”
