DynaVox Introduces Platform of Tablet- and Cloud-Based Solutions to Empower Individuals with Communication Challenges

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DynaVox Inc. (OTC: DVOX), the leading provider of speech generating solutions and symbol-adapted special education software that assists individuals with overcoming their speech, language and learning challenges, proudly announced today the launch of an entirely new technology platform, fully leveraging cloud and tablet technologies.  This platform sets a new standard for augmentative communication solutions for individuals who struggle to communicate using speech due to conditions such as autism, ALS, stroke, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, general speech loss, or traumatic brain injury. 

The first solution created on this new platform is the DynaVox T10, featuring all new DynaVox Compass software.  This proprietary tablet solution offers a thin, modern design that is purpose-built with the unique technical and durability features that address a broad spectrum of physical and cognitive needs.  The DynaVox Compass communication software builds on DynaVox's proud legacy of providing the industry's leading research-based and clinician-developed communication content designed to help individuals grow, learn, and achieve their goals.

"Our technologies foster connections that empower individuals to realize their full communication potential, and help enable them to live enriched, fulfilling lives," said Michelle Wilver, President and CEO of DynaVox Inc.  "More and more, these personal connections are made using cloud- and mobile-technologies that our valued customers will now be able to benefit from as well."

DynaVox's new technology platform has generated another industry first with the DynaVox Compass App, offering a solution for individuals seeking comprehensive solutions on their own personal tablet device.   

Both the DynaVox T10 communication tablet and the DynaVox Compass App solutions will utilize the power of cloud-computing with myDynaVox, a new online personalized portal.  This online environment provides an individual and their entire support team the ability to work collaboratively to manage communication content and settings, back up and restore files, and seamlessly share communication pages, all via the web.
