Communicator 5 and Sono-Flex

Training Type: I-Series Training


Tobii Dynavox Communicator 5 is a software package designed to help individuals with communication disabilities communicate more efficiently, and comes with language content designed to match all AAC needs, from emerging communication to literate adults. Within Communicator 5, Tobii Dynavox provides an easy to use communication solution called Sono-Flex that turns symbols into clear speech and provides language to nonverbal users who are not yet in full control of literacy.

In this presentation we will review Sono-Flex in the Communicator 5 software, and how simple it is to make Sono-Flex a part of your Communicator 5 home page, while demonstrating some simple customization tools. Because of the unique characteristics of our product, this presentation will focus exclusively on Tobii Dynavox software and will not include information on other similar communication or educational products.

Learning Outcomes:

  • List 3 vocabulary selection tools that support quick and efficient communication.
  • List 3 language organization strategies that can be applied to new communication content. 
  • Outline a plan to organize the development and implementation of new communication content.

This course will be offered for .1 CEUs (Introductory Level, Professional area) from April 14th, 2016 through April 13th, 2017.
