DynaVox v. 1.05 Enhancements


DynaVox Releases Software Version 1.05 for DynaVox V and Vmax

Latest Software Enhances Communication Options and Provides Greater
Flexibility

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- DynaVox, the world's leading
provider of advanced communication solutions that assist individuals with
significant speech, language and learning disabilities, announced the
release of software version 1.05 for the V and Vmax speech-output devices.
This new release includes a range of new features that enhance
communication options, ease device setup and use, and provide greater
flexibility when working with applications outside the V/Vmax communication
software.

New features include:

-- EyeMax Support - A robust new eye gaze system, the EyeMax enables
individuals with significant physical limitations to access all Vmax
features using just their eyes.

-- eBook Reader - This tool allows users to download books from sites
such as bookshare.org and eBooks.com directly to the V or Vmax. Books added
to the eBook Reader can be read onscreen using multiple access methods, or
the V/Vmax can read the book aloud to the user.

-- Navigator - This intuitive user interface provides quick access to
speech, email, internet, computer, eBooks, and environmental control
capabilities. An alphabet-based core word strategy that combines seamlessly
with the InterAACT language framework, Navigator supports fast, easy and
independent communication for literate adults.

-- Onscreen Keyboards - These specialized keyboard pages enable V/Vmax
users to operate other Windows software applications using the same
selection method (e.g., scanning or eye gaze) used for their communication
software.

-- Enhanced Environmental Control Functionality - An intuitive setup
interface allows individuals with significant physical limitations and
their care teams to quickly configure V and Vmax devices to operate common
household appliances such televisions, DVD players, etc. equipped with
infrared remote controls.

-- Bluetooth Connectivity - The V or Vmax can now be configured to
control another computer through a Bluetooth connection. This benefits
users who wish to use another computer as their primary computer.

"This latest software release for the V and Vmax is very exciting,"
said Jim Shea, DynaVox's vice president of marketing. "Software version
1.05 streamlines communication and device support and makes basic tasks
such as reading a book or using computer software easier and more
accessible. This release is the direct result of customer feedback and
DynaVox's commitment to supporting our customers by continuing to enhance
our product line to better meet their needs."

Software version 1.05 for the V and Vmax is available free of charge
and is included with all devices shipped on or after September 24, 2008.
Individuals with devices that shipped before that date can obtain the
software by visiting Support at Dynavoxtech.com. Instructions for
determining the current software version running on a specific V/Vmax can
be found on the same page.
