Whichever voice you choose, you can project it as you type for conversations in real time.

Efficient keyboards

Enjoy multilingual communication with the ability to switch between language keyboards. Adjust for preferred eye gaze speed on buttons, keyboards and predictive text. Express yourself more quickly with stored and abbreviated commonly-used phrases. And choose from keyboards designed specifically to match different access methods.
