ProxPad™

ProxPad is a large format message device.  It speaks the recorded content of one tag per swipe or touch.  Each user can hold a number of message tags.  Take turns in a game, joint story telling, environmental messages (locate tags around the school, centre or home and speak message when you bring your device to that location).  So many creative applications.  Not just a single message device!

A simple single message tool using picture or object symbol tags with recordings. Tags can be swiped or touched on the Proxpad to speak the message.  A user can hold multiple tags.

The radio tags can be standard (credit card size) or small (37mm x 37mm).

Small or standard tags can be adhered to a large card to make a super large tag the size of the Proxpad. The tags can be attached to objects or objects attached to the tags.

In a classroom or group acttivity each student can hold their own set of tags, so that the proxPad is used as a single message device.  As the recordings live on the tags, there is no need to re-record for different activities  or students.

Available on a "sale or return' basis. This is a 'money-back' quarantee if not suitable for the task (less shipping costs).

The ProxPad is also available for a short term trial. Please enquire to be addede to the Waiting List.

Managing Sound Tags for ProxTalker and ProxPAD

The sound tags come in two sizes small ( ) and large (). These are managed in exactly the same way. Customised and blank tags can be managed in the same way recording over any pre-recorded sounds. The only difference is that when a factory set customised tag is erased it will default to original factory recording. To make any picture or object ‘talk’ simply attach sound tag, we recommend use of large tags for ProxPAD

Making Custom Tags

Recording a new sound on a Sound Tag:

1. Place the Sound Tag to be recorded on any button on the Proxtalker®.or ProxPad

2. Press and release the Record Programming Tag on any other button on the ProxTalker®.or ProxPad

3. The ProxTalker® will prompt you to RECORD a new sound. Start speaking when the ProxTalker® or ProxPad beeps. The recording time is over when the ProxTalker® or ProxPad beeps again.

4. Apply a picture label to identify the blank Sound Tag (see below).

NOTE: by default, the ProxTalker® or ProxPad will record a 2-second sound. However, if you press and hold the blank tag, you can extend the recording time up to 8 seconds.

NOTE: make sure tags are not duplicated e.g. two x number 5’s or two x ‘dad’

Re-recording a previously programmed Sound Tag:

Any Sound Tag can have its sound replaced - whether it is a pre-programmed Sound Tag or a customized blank Sound Tag. The steps required are identical to creating a new Sound Tag. Follow the steps above.

Resetting a Sound Tag:

1. Place the Sound Tag you want to reset to its original sound on a button on the ProxTalker®.

2. Press and release the ERASE Programming Tag on any other button.

3. ProxTalker® will prompt you to press the Sound tag to be erased.

4. Press and release the Sound Tag to be erased.

5. Remember to change the label.

NOTE: If you erase a pre-recorded Sound Tag it will return to its original sound. If you erase a blank Sound Tag that you had customized it will return to having no sound.

Making Custom Labels

New custom images, symbols, photos or words, can be printed and applied with pressure sensitive adhesive labels to Sound Tags and laminated with clear tape.

Sound Tags are very robust and can withstand lots of abuse. Labels and laminates are available for purchase from Zyteq as a kit.

There are several ways to generate images for the small and large tags using our custom made sticker sheets:

  1. ProxTalker App Lite from the iTunes store is a free app which enable the user to import new or stored photos directly into our sticker sheet templates
  2. ProxTalker App Plus enables symbols to be imported directly to templates available either as an in app purchase or directly from iTunes. Options of SymbolStix or Widgit libraries are available https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/proxtalker-app-lite/id593099176?mt=8
  3. Templates are available on the website for Word, SymbolStix and Communicate in Print users to generate label sheets and print directly onto our sticker sheets
