AlphaCore is designed to facilitate communication for literate adults, like those with ALS. Developed by Amy Roman, M.S., CCC-SLP, AlphaCore reduces message creation time by more than 50% by combining Core Vocabulary (a small set of high-usage words that account for about 75% of the words we say) with well-organized conversation pages. AlphaCore is available exclusively on the DynaVox V+, Vmax+ and EyeMax System.
