Summary

We have been using The Fizzbook SPIN as a low cost dynamic screen voice output communication aid (VOCA) over the last year. This has mainly been with older people with a learning disability using Grid2 software. We have also developed a gridset based on Quickfire grids using a free symbol set and using Cricksoft's Clicker5. We have been working with other PC equipment in the search to continue to develop low cost dynamic screen voice output communication aids.
