Developed and sold EXCLUSIVELY by Gus Communication Devices, the SpeechWatch® is the world’s first stand alone AAC/speech “device” that is worn on the wrist and is ideal for children and adults with autism, aphasia (stroke), Parkinson’s, or any condition that affects their ability to communicate with friends and family.
Each SpeechWatch is individually prepared and configured by one of our technicians prior to shipping. They install, modify and test the TalkTablet AAC Speech app so it is ready to use for communication the moment you take it out of its gift box.
The SpeechWatch is a less cumbersome alternative to a tablet or cell phone, yet offers the same benefits including cell phone, internet access, texting, email, social media (Facebook etc.), GPS mapping, tracking, streaming music and access to thousands of apps from the Google Play Store. OR…using readily available “parental” control apps, all those “bells and whistles” can be turned off to limit the user only using the TalkTablet speech app, or other specific apps and features.
The SpeechWatch is a stand alone speech tablet with a 2.2″ display that does not require a secondary smartphone or tablet in order to create or edit buttons or pages. However, if you own a tablet with the TalkTablet app installed, you can use it to edit and create TalkTablet buttons and pages and wirelessly transfer them to the TalkTablet SpeechWatch….or visa versa!!
