This product training focuses on basic programming and operations of any PRC device (Accent® 800/1000/1400, PRiO® or legacy devices). The class will start out with an overview of language systems. Then participants will learn how to: choose a vocabulary, change the voice, set the access method, add vocabulary and messages, add photos, temporarily limit vocabulary, disable the toolbox and perform a memory transfer to back up device contents. In addition, participants will learn about basic care, maintenance, resources and support.
A PRC Accent device or laptop is required for this training. Please bring an Accent 800, 1000, 1200 or 1400 running the latest version of software. Participants can bring a laptop computer pre-loaded with PASS demo software and the appropriate language system. If you want to use a Mac laptop you will need a Windows 7 or higher emulator with PASS installed. PASS software is not compatible with iPads. This is not an iPad training.
This training is appropriate for SLPs, OTs, ATPs, educators, family members, and others who support individuals who currently use or may need to use PRC devices.
