Text-to-Speech in a stylish keyboard design.
The Allora 2 is elegantly designed for face-to-face communication! The detachable display/speaker can be worn around the neck on a lanyard, or given to someone to read the message, placed in the middle of the table for a meeting or at the restaurant, or you can attach it to the back of the car headrest for the back seat passenger to read. The speech output uses a high quality intelligible Realspeak speech synthesizer, and dual forward facing stereo speakers for maximum volume.
All expected speed enhancement features are standard. Standard SMS module provides text messaging capability too! (Phone service is not included.) And the optional GEWA IR transmitter lets you operate appliances through the infrared environment control.
The Allora 2 is a well-designed, functional communication device, requiring minimal set-up and maintenance. The access options of keyboard and switch operation make it suitable for people who have changing fine-motor needs.
