Features for users who spell include word and letter prediction, abbreviation expansion, and grammar buttons. The user can choose between three voice synthesizers. NeoSpeech offers high- quality voice synthesis in American English, Loquendo offers speech synthesis in six different languages, and DECtalk offers the classic voices of alternative and augmentative communication, including a child’s voice.
