Tellus Series Updated
The Tellus series of AAC devices has had a few updates. Among them an 80G hard drive (imagine the videos and music you could have on there for students) and updated processor on the Tellus 3+ and newly designed scanning board set for switch users (the Tellus uses Mind Express Software). The Tellus Mobi has also expanded its color possibilities with the options of green and pink in addition to the grey and blue it has been offering for sometime.
One thing that I find exciting are the ability to use Pictos symbols (in addition to Widgit, PCS, Beta Symbols, Bliss and Picture This). I have found that Pictos symbols are great for students with low vision. Also, there is no need to figure out how to get rid of visual scene displays if your user is unable to use them well.
In the UK the Tellus is available from Techcess, in the USA it is carried by the vendors on this list.
