Janine and her ChatPC

Posted on 2012-11-30 11:51:00 by Admin under Success Stories

Meet Janine, our Saltilo spotlight start for November.  This is her story.

I started learning my ChatPC three years ago. To get approval and funding for my device I had two of my doctors and my speech therapist write letters to my insurance company and I went to a big building to see the person that is in charge of approving or not approving requests for my health insurance company.  When I got approval I was so excited. I use my ChatPC to get my needs and desires across.I talk to my friends at the bank too. And I answer yes and no questions. Sometimes I get nervous and confused when I am trying to communicate. I am learning to take my time. The ChatPC helps me pay attention. It also helps me count my money. Recently, I had a very bad experience and had to go to court to get an injunction to keep a bad person away from me. I was able to tell my story to two interpreters that helped me during the hearing. I was successful getting the permanent injunction.  I am excited to learn more.

Saltillo is so excited to announce that we are now able to offer all of the NOVA Chats (5, 7 & 10 inch) in an English/Spanish America version!  These English/Spanish America NOVA chat’s are now available for an additional $200.  The English/Spanish America NOVA Chat contains all of the original English Vocabulary files plus 6 English/Spanish America Vocabulary Files.

You will get to choose one synthesizer at time of purchase for the English/Spanish America systems.  If Acapela is chosen instead of Ivona, there will not be a charge for Acapela since it will be the only synthesizer and not an additional synthesizer.

Spanish Acapela voice options include:

  • Antonio (Adult Male ESP)
  • Maria (Adult Female, ESP)
  • Rosa (Adult Female, USA)

Spanish Ivona voice options include:

  • Conchita (Adulto Femenino, ESP)
