Portable communication tool.
The Go Talk 20+ is a slim device with twenty touchpads that can store messages five different messages each (ie it has five 'levels'). There's also five smaller 'core message' touchpads that speak the same message whatever level is selected. The total message time is 15 minutes. All GoTalk models have a built-in keyguard and an integral carry handle. You can cycle through the message levels with a single button, and a record lock eliminates accidental removal of messages. There's an option to quickly erase a whole level if required, and a level lock is available to prevent unintentional level changes. Overlays fit into a transparent plastic wallet and slide into the side of the unit. They can be stacked inside for storage, although storing too many will make it harder to activate the touchpads. The volume level is changed by pressing two touchpads which, although removing the need for a moving part, can become time-consuming as a message is spoken for every increment of change. Clear recording instructions are printed on the back of the unit. Two AA batteries are included. www.speechbubble.org.uk/device/go-talk-20/
