innovative structure. Less does mean more. The Tango’s small, lightweight size and innovative look means there are no physical barriers between communicators. Instead, the design lets people devote their attention to the message being shared, rather than the speech device being used to share it. The six-button layout of the Tango means faster communication with fewer distractions. The structure speeds up the selection process, helping you quickly say just what you want to – the way you want to – in no time. Tango’s symbols were developed by animation illustrators from the education and entertainment industry, making them especially appealing to children and young adults.
Fewer buttons doesn’t mean fewer features. The Tango features the first ever built-in camera on a speech device. Take photos with your Tango, and save and organize them in Photo Albums right on your device. Then, share stories, events and memories even more vividly with parents, teachers, friends and neighbors.
Be just who you want to be. A communicator’s language skills mature as they grow. The Tango offers a wide range of content, symbol and voice options that meet the unique needs of different age groups. Choose content and symbols appropriate to your current age, and take your pick of complementary voices. Then, as you grow, keep the hardware you’ve come to know, and just swap out your Character Card for content, symbols and voice options that suit the current stage of your life.
Amazing power can be amazingly simple. Innovative and intuitive, the Tango’s Phrase-First language structure was developed by a team of experts who recognize the importance of precise communication, but also see the value of efficient communication.
voices. You have to hear it to believe it. The Tango boasts some of the most natural-sounding voices in the industry, ranging from young child to young adult. It features enhanced digitized (recorded) messaging, along with synthesized (computer-generated) speech, all available in different voices that can easily be changed as you grow. Voice Morphing™ technology allows you to record an adult voice and choose any of four transformations to make it sound just like a male or female child’s voice. Capabilities that allow you to whisper, whine and shout messages further support natural communication. You can even adjust the pronunciation of synthesized words and save them to your dictionary so they’re there to stay!
The Phrase-First language structure is the first where symbols represent whole phrases, rather than single words. This easy access to whole phrases helps ensure that messages are exchanged quickly and naturally – the way people talk in everyday situations. Easy to understand and use, it makes navigation simple and hassle-free, while offering opportunities to develop language and literacy skills. • Phrase Banks: Find more than 2,000 common phrases organized by topic for daily communication. • Word Banks: Build sentences with nouns, verbs, modifiers and favorites organized by topic and arranged in lists. • Core Words: Create crisp sentences, or combine these 90 Core Words with Topic Words to build more complex sentences. • Spelling: Create a quick novel message on a powerful Pop-Up keyboard with word prediction.
