Text communication

 
 
 
 
Text communication in Grid 3 empowers literate users to communicate more quickly and more accurately than ever.

 

 

 

 

 

Text communication made easy

There are a range of keyboard designs to choose from and a range of features that use innovative new technology to create a more natural user experience.

Rapid communication

Text communication in Grid 3 has ground-breaking tools to make it faster than ever to get your message across. Our beautifully designed range of keyboards are easy to use with any type of alternative access.

Chat history

One of the most exciting new features is Chat History. This patented technology enables Grid 3 to remember everything you ever say, so you can say it again in an instant. There are over 5,000 messages pre-programmed and ready to speak aloud. These messages are presented based on how often you say something and where you are.

Location relevant phrase suggestions

What you say depends on who you are talking to and where you are. Grid 3 uses your location to suggest phrases, so you can quickly ask for coffee as soon as you enter the coffee shop.

SwiftKey technology inside

Grid 3 now uses SwiftKey prediction to increase speed and accuracy. Don’t worry if you misspell or mistype a word, just keep writing and Grid 3 can still predict what you want to say.

Keyboard designs to suit everyone

We understand that no single solution is suitable for everyone, so we have created a range of keyboards that work with different access types and different levels of literacy.

 

Symbol communication

Symbol communication in Grid 3 enables you to use symbols to represent words and phrases for choosing what you want to say. A wide range of ready-made grid sets are available as soon as you power up your device, so you can get started straight away!

Designed for everyone

The grid sets in Grid 3 have  varying levels of literacy and access, so you can choose the right sources for the user. The Symbol Talker grid sets provide a pathway of learning that takes you from early AAC right through to literacy. Resources begin with topic based vocabulary where words are organised for easy sentence building and navigation.

Core vocabulary

More advanced grid sets are built on the core vocabulary we use most in everyday conversation. You will also notice that there are more cells included in each grid – introducing a larger vocabulary and more choices.

Smart grammar

Clever tools in all of the grid sets empower you to say what you want more quickly and more accurately than ever before. The smart grammar feature changes verb cells in your grid intelligently as you write. In this example you can see that the verb ‘want’ has changed to ‘wants’ because we selected ‘it’.

Quick editing

Editing your grid sets is also quick and easy. Using the intuitive editing interface you can add new vocabulary, change symbols or create new grids with only a few clicks.

 

Access options

Grid 3’s access options are comprehensive and intuitive. From pointing devices to touch screens, eye gaze to switches; Grid 3 has innovative new features that make alternative access easier and more effective.

 

Grid 3 puts you in control

There are many commands in Grid 3 that put you in control; you can enable or disable different access methods, adjust the speed and timing of your access and even recalibrate eye gaze. All of this is possible from within Grid 3 using your alternative access method.

Pointing devices

Any device that acts as a mouse to move the pointer can be used with Grid 3. You can choose how cells are highlighted, with options for magnifying a cell and changing the colour of the border or background.

Touch

If you use touch to control your device Grid 3 has settings to make things easier. We have created a built-in Virtual Key Guard that disregards unwanted screen presses. You can also choose whether you want your first touch, or when you lift off the screen, to be the action that makes a selection.

Eye gaze

Grid 3 can be accessed using a choice of eye gaze cameras. Eye gaze settings are all available from within Grid 3, so you can tweak them on the go, like with our convenient Eye Gaze Monitor, which shows you how you are positioned in front of the camera. How you make a selection is also up to you. Now, in addition to the Dwell visual indicator, you have the option of using our innovative new feature, Zoom to Click, when controlling your computer.

Cameras supported by Grid 3:

  • myGaze Assistive 2
  • Alea Cam30
  • Alea Cam30NT
  • EyeTech TM5
  • SeeTech
  • Tobii PC Eye Mini
  • Tobii PC Eye Go
  • Tobii i-Series

Switches

Scanning with switches in Grid 3 is a new experience, with features that have not been available until now. Such as the Scan Progress Indicator – an innovative tool that helps you anticipate when the item you want will be highlighted. There are also many other settings in Grid 3 to make scanning more efficient for you. You can group cells into blocks, rows and columns, advance the scan automatically or manually, use additional switches and adjust switch timings.

Multiple switches

Alternatives to scanning, when using more than one switch, include using four switches or a joystick to move up, down, left and right. There is also the option to activate Switch Elimination, where grids are broken up into groups you can then select directly with the corresponding switch.

Voice activation with Hey Grid 3

You can also control Grid 3 and activate cells with your voice using our Hey Grid 3 voice activation feature.

We call voice activation ‘Hey Grid 3’ because that’s the preset wake up phrase – so Grid 3 isn’t always listening and responding to everything you say – but you can change it to whatever you like!

The voice activation tools are particularly useful for individuals who have speech but use assistive technology to control their environment.

Audio feedback

In Grid 3 you also have the option to use audio highlighting, so a description of the cell or a sound will be played before you make a selection. Audio highlighting can use a different audio device to your main speech, allowing you to use a wired headphone or Bluetooth headset for audio highlighting, and a louder speaker for your voice.

Designed for access

Grid 3 has been designed to work effortlessly with every type of alternative access. Considering access throughout development means that all of our features and settings are integrated and simple to adjust as your needs change.
