Introducing The PRC Bluetooth® Wireless Switch,
Allows Wireless Access to PRC Products
Advanced Wireless Computer Access and More for AAC Communicators
Wooster, OH, October 6, 2008 – Prentke Romich Company (PRC), the leading manufacturer of alternative and augmented communication (AAC) devices for individuals with speech disabilities, today announced the release of the PRC Bluetooth Wireless Switch (BTWS), an innovative wireless switch that is comparable to PRC devices with built-in Bluetooth capabilities. The BTWS is compatible with PRC’s ECO™-14, Springboard™ Lite, and another newly released innovation, Vantage™ Lite.
With comparable size to other switches, The Bluetooth Wireless Switch has a rechargeable li-ion battery with over 100 hours of run time on a single charge. Additional features include:
External switch jack allows dual switch input;
· Non-skid bottom case means the BTWS stays where you want it;
· LED indicator lights show “pairing” and power status;
· Bluetooth® connectivity for computer access and wireless access;
· Battery level can be viewed in the paired PRC device.
“Wireless switching eliminates traditional problems with tangling or disconnection of cords that can happen with everyday use of a communication device,” says Bob Nemens, PRC Director of Marketing. “PRC designed and developed this innovation with both freedom of access and reliability in mind.”
Adding the PRC Bluetooth Adapter also delivers wireless computer access features in three versatile product modes:
· Mouse Mode inputs mouse moves and “click” and “double click” into USB-equipped computers;
· Keyboard 1,2,3 Mode allows the switch to be used to scan in PRC PASS software;
· Keyboard F-Keys Mode allows the switch to be used to scan WiVik® software.
