Providing the best user experience with Saltillo devices is always top of mind. That's why we're dedicated to delivering the most up-to-date software and vocabulary enhancements…and the 2.19 Software Release does just that!

  • -You can now plug a dual switch into NovaChat® and ChatFusion™ devices for two-switch scanning
  • -The new Switch Setup Wizard will have your switches up and running in no time
  • -PCS symbols are now disabled by default in ChatEditor. If you have purchased PCS symbols on your NovaChat or ChatFusion device, simply connect that device to ChatEditor and the PCS symbols will be enabled (this is the same way that speech is enabled on ChatEditor). This maintains the copyright integrity of PCS symbols and ensures that those who use the PCS symbols have full access to them in the ChatEditor software.
  • -Lots of cool WordPower™ vocabulary enhancements for increased functionality and language building!
