Rescue Speech System is a scanning communication system based upon a Laser 128 or Apple IIGS computer. The user controls the system by activating any single switch. A program running on the computer presents the user with menus of letters, phrases or commands. The user activates the switch when the scanning cursor arrives at the desired choice. The menus are set up in a hierarchical system: the user moves to the desired menu of choices (for instance a set of phrases classified by topic), and then scans those choices for the desired item. The message composed appears on the computer screen, and can also be printed on a printer or spoken by a speech synthesizer. The user can also control up to eight electrical appliances. These appliances can be controlled remotely if plugged into remote control modules (extra). The Laser 128 computer can be operated on wall power or on a 12 volt wheelchair battery. The Rescue Speech System includes the computer, monitor, speech synthesizer, switch, software, and printer, on a cart ($ 1,500.00) or ready to be mounted on a wheelchair ($1,800.00). The Apple IIGS system, which can also be mounted on a wheelchair, is $2,600. 00. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Apple IIe, and Apple IIGS computers. DIMENSIONS: 16.5 x 22 x 27 inches. WEIGHT: 22 pounds. POWER: 12V battery.
