New Box of Words on the Block
PRC has introduced a new AAC device. The Vantage Lite. Like its predecessors the Springboard Lite and the Vantage it takes the features of the larger Vantage Device and puts them into a more manageable, portable option. It runs about $7300.00, comes in five colors and can have Classroom Suite, keyguards and other features added for a cost. The Vantage Lite, of course, "speaks" Unity/Minspeak. It is about 9x8 inches and weighs in at 3 lbs 6 oz. and has the usual features like IR remote, bluetooth, USB ports, media player features, compact flash card port, and two switch ports. No mention of x10 which is usually standard. Also no advanced features as standard or options such as solid state hard drive. All in all, if your student is capable of Unity, this might be the way to go for a new user device.
