How AlphaCore can help pALS
(people with ALS) communicate.

The AlphaCore text-to-speech AAC program on the eyespeak or Zuvo can help to speed communication for non-verbal, literate users with a wide variety of access needs like those with ALS/MND. AlphaCore incorporates features proven effective by research and inspired by the day-to-day experiences of patients and caregivers – and is easy to personalize for each users’ specific communication needs. AlphaCore was developed by Amy Roman, a Speech/Language Pathologist & Augmentative Communication Specialist at the Forbes Norris ALS Research and Treatment Center in San Francisco, CA.

 

1) TouchType Keyboard

For people who are typing on either an external-wireless keyboard or eyespeak or Zuvo speech device touchscreen. The TouchType keyboard has a major advantage over other text to speech programs in that all of the functions such as CLEAR, SPEAK, an Altering Chime, as well as word & phrase prediction options can be activated with F-Keys on the external-wireless keyboard. 

 

2) AlphaCore Keyboard

Core vocabulary is a small set of high-usage words that account for about 75% of the words we say.

Designed for those using an alternate access method such as a mouse, touchpad, trackball, joystick, head or eye-tracking. The AlphaCore keyboard provides rapid sentence building with single hit selection of high frequency core vocabulary.

 

 

 

3) Large Keyboard

Ideal for people with visual or targeting difficulties or those who just prefer a simple keyboard with word prediction. This keyboard still provides access to the phase pages used with the TouchType or AlphaCore Keyboard so a transition to this keyboard is seamless.

 

4) Extra Large Keyboard

16 key keyboard incorporating next letter prediction as well as word and phrase prediction. Eye trackers especially those with decreased ability to control eye movement can continue to interact with a system that just seems to be guessing what you are going to say.
