Text2Speech Add-on for NEO (NEO 2 device not included)

Imagine how your students’ writing would improve if they could type on their NEO 1s or NEO 2s and then listen to what they’ve written. Now they can! The all-new Text2Speech accessory for all NEOs lets students convert any written text into spoken words.

This revolutionary new device provides instant audio feedback for struggling and developing writers to help improve writing, expression, fluency, and grammar. It also puts portable communication capability right at the fingertips of the speech-challenged.

Text2Speech is perfect for:

  • Struggling writers
  • Students with special needs
  • English language learners
  • Students who need help communicating

Text2Speech is especially effective for struggling writers when used with Co:Writer for NEO. Words are highlighted on the NEO screen as they are read. Text2Speech also works with NEO’s Spell-checker and Thesaurus features, giving students even more flexibility and confidence in their writing and self-expression.

Text2Speech connects to the NEO wirelessly, using NEO’s built-in infrared capability and integrated SmartApplet software (already installed on currently shipping NEOs; for existing NEOs, users may need to install a system upgrade v3.x with AlphaSmart Manager 2 v3.3 – available as a free download).


The software can be customised easily:

  • to designate a male or female voice
  • have text automatically read back by letter, word, sentence, or paragraph
  • listen to text at any speed or volume desired

With Text2Speech, you can choose to plug in headphones for personalised use, or use speakers to facilitate communication with others.

The Text2Speech add-on package includes:

  • Text2Speech device
  • Headphones
  • QuickStart Guide
  • AlphaSmart Manager Software
  • 2 AA batteries (up to 200 hours or 300,000 spoken words).

Ex-demo units come with 3 month warranty.
