Smooth Talker was recently redesigned to include even more features, a huge 8 minutes of recording time and superior sound quality, it also now has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery which will give many hours of use between charges (and, importantly, may still be used while recharging), saving you money on batteries.
Perhaps the feature that makes Smooth Talker so popular is the choice of playback modes. Choose from:
- Sequential play the messages in sequence, beginning with the first.
- Random plays a random message and is great as a speaking dice, for example.
- Random (no repeats). A new mode which randomly plays every message exactly once before starting over. Perfect for choosing who goes next in a group activity nobody gets missed out and nobody gets two goes!
- Choice requires two switches and is used to allow the user to exercise a choice between two items or concepts.The second switch may be wired or wireless.
- Choice Progression Choose between multiple pairs of items or concepts, for example choosing menu items.
- Converse a truly unique feature that has come to define Smooth Talker. Requires two switches and allows two users to conduct a two-way conversation without fear that they will get out of sequence.
- Auditory Prompt. Use the second switch to choose a message by searching through them quickly, and at low volume. Then play back the chosen message using the main switch at normal volume.
- Question/Answer. Record your messages as Q and A pairs and then this mode allows the question and answer to be repeated multiple times before moving on, to allow reiteration and reinforcement.
A further socket is provided for a second switch and is used in Choice, Converse, Auditory Prompt and Question/Answer modes, or may simply be used instead of the main switch in Sequential or either of the Random modes. Because Smooth Talker is a SimplyWorks device, it may be paired with a wireless switch too.
Uniquely, Smooth Talker has the facility to add messages to your existing recordings without needing to erase what you have previously recorded.
