Inclusive Voices by Almagu
New! Inclusive Voices by Almagu offers an ethnically and age-diverse collection of synthetic voices. Included by default in LAMP Words for Life, TouchChat and Dialogue AAC apps. Coming soon to Accent/NovaChat.
Hear for yourself:
The DEC Talk synthesized voices were the original voices used in AAC devices. They remain available in Accent only, specifically for customers who have had DECTalk as their voice for years.
PRC-Saltillo partners with The VoiceKeeper and Acapela to ensure that everyone who uses AAC can create their own unique voice.
The VoiceKeeper allows adults facing the prospect of losing their ability to speak the opportunity to record their voice for later use with an AAC device. And, for children who are unable to speak, the VoiceKeeper gives them and their families the option to choose their own "voice model" to create a voice that matches them.
The Voice Keeper is available for free on LAMP Words for Life, TouchChat, and Dialogue AAC. It can be integrated into Accent devices.
Acapela My Own Voice
My Own Voice by Acapela is available at mov.acapela-group.com. It can be downloaded into all PRC-Saltillo devices and apps.
