The new Lightwriter SL50 has been designed to be the best dedicated text-to-speech device for literate users who are unable to communicate effectively through speech.
The SL50 enables you to participate in social interactions at work or during leisure time, indoors or outdoors, even in noisy or poorly-lit environments.
Every part of the Lightwriter SL50 has been designed specifically for purpose, to help you communicate clearly and effectively.
Clear, fast, effective communication at the press of a button.
Please Note: The SL40 and SL40 Connect have been discontinued.
Communication is part of life, nobody should be excluded. The SL50 is designed to be efficient and is always ready to talk – just press any key and you’re ready to go. Designed with dual screens for face-to-face engagement, meaning you can communicate naturally with eye contact, gestures and body language. The menu is simple and relevant, so it’s fast to use, with no distracting apps or screen loading times.
If you are meeting friends in a busy café, the loud clear outfacing speakers ensure you can still be heard, and the outfacing screen confirms what you’ve said. If you decide to sit outside, no problem! Its adjustable screen will still be clear in bright daylight, and its backlit keys make it easy to use at night.
You can connect the SL50 to your mobile phone using Bluetooth and make phone calls through your Lightwriter, using a combination of the synthesised speech and your own voice. Or, access your phone book and send a text message easily (for Android only) to let your family know where you are, while you’re out and about.
The Lightwriter SL50 is small, portable and robust. It’s designed to withstand the bumps and knocks of everyday life, so you can take it everywhere. Its long battery life means you can use your Lightwriter as much as you want, all day every day.
You can set up your SL50 just the way you need it. It can be used in many different ways to suit your situation, even if it is constantly changing.
Choose from a selection of keyguards, and adjust key sensitivity settings to support your needs. Whether you like to have a clean, basic menu setup or if you like to get stuck into all the settings, the menu can be configured to only show what you need. You can change the size of the text and the screen brightness, adjust volumes and sounds, choose your own voice and make it totally personal to you.
A comprehensive dictionary is pre-loaded into your SL50. Its adaptive technology will learn new words and predictions as you type and become more responsive as time goes on, making it faster to find the words you need. You can upload and download your own dictionary, blacklist words you don’t need to use, and even change the way you pronounce certain words.
If you need keyboard scanning, this is also ready to go and can be set up to function the way you need it, with one or two switches. You can also use a combination of scanning and keyboard presses if your energy and dexterity changes throughout the day, or throughout the years.
