Lightwriter Swift

We had a lot of fun playing with the new Lightwriter Swift at the 2012 ATIA conference in Orlando. Previous models of the Lightwriter have had revered places on our AAC Lab shelves and so we were looking forward to the new and improved Lightwriter. I have mixed feelings about the smaller size. Some of our folks really liked the feel of a more standard keyboard and they won’t get that in the Swift. The newest model is a radical departure from the older versions, but they’ve retained their signature feature of the dual display. I love the conversational fillers (sigh, laugh, uh huh) but what really amazed me was the clarity of sound in a very noisy exhibit hall. Here’s video tour of the new device posted by the folks at Toby Churchill last week.

    It says the video is “private”. My daughter is in the processing of getting insurance approval for a “traditional” LightWriter and I didn’t know about this one. Do you have an alternate video link?
