New Strategies Take Time
and Practice to Master
1. Think Dynamic Displays are easy to learn?
Many people think that devices like the DynaVox, DynaMyte,
Chat PC, HandHeld Voice, Speaking Dynamically Pro, Springboard are
easy to learn because the user can find vocabulary by moving freely
from screen to screen. But it is a lot more difficult than you think.
Think of each screen like an open web page on your own computer.
How many pages can you have open at once and still navigate easily
among them? At what point do you want to just close them all and start
And yet we often give people devices with 25 or 30 pages accessible
from one home page. Could you handle that?
