NOVA chat 7 is a communication system that offers the well-known Chat software on an Android platform. Like all NOVA Chats, the NOVA chat 7 is now available in an English/Spanish America version, which offers Spanish and bilingual vocabulary files. NOVA chat 7 also offers a durable yet sleek portable design, with features that include a 7" display, switch scanning, Social Chat, Ivona or Acapela speech synthesizer, and many other Chat features.
A variety of vocabulary configurations provides options for each individual that uses our "Chat" systems. NOVA chat includes thousands of SymbolStix™ symbols, and PCS™ symbols can be added.
This new English/Spanish America NOVA Chat gives you an option of using either Acapela or Ivona voices, which both offer bilingual speech capabilities. Important Note: Only one synthesizer must be chosen at time of purchase for the English/Spanish America systems. If Acapela is chosen instead of Ivona, there will not be a charge for Acapela since it will be the only synthesizer and not an additional synthesizer.
NOVA chat 7 comes with a 7" screen and weighs only 1.44 lbs. The capacitive touchscreen is accessible by finger touch or an included stylus.
A rubberized protective shield protects the system while color shells give it an up-to-date style. No need to choose just one color, as four color shells are provided with each system. Blue, green and purple offer youthful, fun options while a gray option provides a more sophisticated look.
The English/Spanish America NOVA Chat 7 contains all of the original NOVA Chat English Vocabulary files and 6 English/Spanish America Vocabulary files.
