FAQ

  • Can I use a different voice on the LapTalk than the one that is installed?
  • Absolutely. The LapTalk ships with two voices by default, but it is possible to use other voices. Individual voices can be purchased separately from vendors such as NextUp and can be installed onto your system. This creates a near field to far field signal level difference of 10 to 11 db. That 10 db level difference improves the intelligibility of near field conversation dramatically.
  • Can I surf the internet with the LapTalk?
  • Yes. The LapTalk software allows you to access many types of information on the internet without ever needing to open a web browser. However, if you do need to navigate to a web page, the LapTalk includes a screen reader to help you do it. The screen reader vocalizes the content of any web page that you open. It does require training to become proficient, which is why we consider this an advanced feature.
  • I do not know how to type on a computer keyboard, can I still use the LapTalk Computer?
  • Certainly. Most features in the LapTalk do not require any typing skills. There are a few keys (up, down, and enter) that are used to navigate through the menus in the system. For other features such as E-mail or NoteTaker, you will need to learn how to type. Fortunately, the LapTalk has you covered. The Typing Tutor feature is a fully vocalized, series of lesson that will have you typing in no time. As you use the system, every time you press a key it will speak it back to you, so you know what you’re typing. Also, each word is automatically checked for spelling so you can quickly correct any mistakes.
