Product Description:

Main Features:

  • The internal Lithium-ion battery is charged via a micro USB connector similar to those used by smartphones.
  • Works with all versions of Microsoft Windows.
  • The device converts USB inputs to Bluetooth data for use in the AAC (Alternative and Augmentative Communication) applications.
