ActiveVoices is our new
Dynamic Screen Communication program. With it, you can turn any
Microsoft Windows computer into the best communication system
here to see a sample screen with futher explanation.
ActiveVoices provides all
the normal functions of a dynamic screen
communication program: Cells containing pictures and/or text,
recorded or synthesized speech when selected or as audible
prompts, scanning or direct selection of cells, links to other
pages or page sets, pop-up screens, word prediction, cell
prediction or sequencing, and templates.
Special stand out features of ActiveVoices
- Extreme ease of programming. Use of the standard
Windows mouse and keyboard commands makes the creation or
modification of communication pages easy. Cut, copy,
paste cells with a few simple mouse clicks. Simple
tutorial teaches you to program in 30 minutes!
- A complete library of communication cells is included and
can be easily extended using any picture in your
computer. There is no need to purchase additional
software to format pages or cells. (For those who prefer,
the Mayer-Johnson picture communication symbols can be
also available for an additional fee.)

- Multiple languages are built into the software to allow
users to switch between English, Spanish, French, German,
