We just made the best better still! All of the features of the
Smooth Talker but now with 5 adaptive levels. The advanced
memory management features in the new Smooth Talker with
levels allocates memory as it’s used, meaning that you can have
a different amount of recording time on each level to meet your
exact needs. The only limit is a massive 8 minutes, spread across
the five levels. So, for example, you can have four minutes of
messages on level 1, and one minute on each of the other levels
if you wish, or any other combination that adds up to 8 minutes.
Memory allocation takes place automatically with no intervention
by the user.
Did you know?
Both Smooth Talker and Smooth Talker with Levels
can be paired with Kinetic for SimplyWorks to become a
talking dice! Place Kinetic in a large foam dice and every
time you turn it to a new face, Smooth Talker will say the
number, or some other message appropriate to what’s
on the face of the dice!
Whereas other manufacturers sell different products to fulfil each
particular AAC requirement, Pretorian’s philosophy is to fulfil all
your requirements in a single product, saving you time and money.
Perhaps the feature that makes Smooth Talker with Levels so
popular is the choice of playback modes. Choose from:
- Sequential play the messages in sequence, beginning
with the first.
- Random plays a random message and is great as a
speaking dice, for example.
- Random (no repeats). A new mode which randomly
plays every message exactly once before starting over.
Perfect for choosing who goes next in a group activitynobody
gets missed out and nobody gets two goes!
- Choice requires two switches and is used to allow
the user to exercise a choice between two items or
concepts.The second switch may be wired or wireless.
- Choice Progression Choose between multiple pairs of
items or concepts, for example choosing menu items.
- Converse a truly unique feature that has come
to define Smooth Talker Smooth Talker with
Levels. Requires two switches and allows two users
to conduct a two-way conversation without fear that
they will get out of sequence.
- Auditory Prompt. Use the second switch to choose a
message by searching through them quickly, and at
low volume. Then play back the chosen message using
the main switch at normal volume.
- Question/Answer. Record your messages as Q and A
pairs and then this mode allows the question and
answer to be repeated multiple times before moving
on, to allow reiteration and reinforcement.
Toy output can be added to any message and may be chosen on a
message by message basis as it’s recorded. Although a toy socket
is provided, Smooth Talker with Levels is a SimplyWorks device and
so can be paired with a SimplyWorks toy controller such as Control
or Control Pro, or can be used to turn on an appliance by pairing
with Energise or iClick.
A further socket is provided for a second switch and is used in
Choice, Converse, Auditory Prompt and Question/Answer modes,
or may simply be used instead of the main switch in Sequential or
either of the Random modes. Because Smooth Talker with Levels is
a SimplyWorks device, it may be paired with a wireless switch too.
Uniquely, Smooth Talker with Levels has the facility to add
messages to your existing recordings without needing to erase
what you have previously recorded.
Smooth Talker with Levels is as simple or as complex as you
need it to be- the choice is yours. There are some great resources
