1-2-3 Speak AAC Device
There is an interesting story behind the 1-2-3 Speak software. Check it out.
Basically the 1-2-3 Speak is AAC software installed on off the shelf computer systems. The set up seems limited as far as presentation and uses a proprietary icon set. The software was developed as part of a grant for a disability service agency and is now being sold. The website has very little information about the devices (no specs) and no information about funding (prices are there though the software alone starts at $695.00). There is no online help, knowledge base or tutorials. You can download a little demo of the software if you would like. Long story short this is a nice, simple interface that may be useful in a setting where you desire little customization, have no access issues and user will be able to acclimate to a clip art like symbol set.
