The new version: even more user-friendly
Mind Express has been radically updated since the previous version Mind Express 3. The new version, Mind Express 4, is even more user-friendly and quicker to use!  This is the reason notable teachers and clinicians are using Mind Express 4 as the foundation to build their educational resrouces.

The menus, options  and programming are simplified and faster. Mind Express employs Windows conventions making editing and customising very intuitive and familiar. Mind Express 4 is packed with features: multimedia, calendars, agendas, dynamic lists, freestyle pages and more. With Mind Express 4, it is faster and easier than ever before to create cells and vocabularies, develop an exercise or create an original therapy game or educational activity.

From images and symbols to text-to-speech
“I want to say something”  “You're a nut!”  “The apples look good”  “I need to see the doctor” 
In Mind Express 4, the user selects pictures and symbols. On the basis of these selections, the program makes words and phrases that are then spoken in a clear voice. The built-in grammar module automatically conjugates the verbs.

From A to Z
Mind Express 4 contains an abundance of symbols and pictures. It is easy and quick to create cells and vocabularies, new exercises or original therapy games. For a personal touch, symbols can be modified. Change a symbol’s colours. Add drawings, photographs or combine multiple symbols in one cell. It’s all possible with Mind Express 4.  QUICK EDIT is a very helpful feature to permit speedy creation of pages of symbols.

Dynamic lists
Dynamic lists make Mind Express 4 even more user-friendly. For example, five cells can be used for a “fruit” list. Using a Next cell, the next five symbols - in this case, more types of fruit - are automatically displayed in the same five cells. The action can be repeated until all the fruits available have been displayed, in which case, the list would start over. This allows you to use an extensive vocabulary in a limited number of cells and without the need to create additional pages.

Communicate quicker
Cells can contain alpha-numeric characters and words. A cell can also contain an entire sentence speeding up communication even more. Symbols help both literate and non-literate users by speeding up recognition of message content. Furthermore, word prediction - whether or not accompanied by an associated symbol - and sentence prediction, increase the speed of communication even further.

Word processor
Mind Express 4 enables one to write simple sentences and letters. They can be spoken, saved or printed. The message window is the word processor and is used to build sentences and letters with symbols and text.

Control for other programs
Use Mind Express 4 to launch other programs and as a on-screen keyboard to type in other programs. Mind Express 4 can even fully control your computer.

Controls customised to the user's needs
Mind Express 4 supports various options for selecting cells via touchscreen, mouse, trackball, head control, eye control or switches with visual and auditory scanning. The different scanning modes make Mind Express™ 4 accessible to people who use 1 or 2 switches. The various control options can be fully customized to the skills of the user. This allows set-ups for independent access  with Mind Express 4.

Apart from communication through symbols and text, Mind Express 4 provides a wide range of other options:

  • Games
  • Exercises
  • Typing in other programs
  • Controlling Windows programs

How the Multi-User and Network Licenses work

Multi-User Licences:

For this option you don’t use a network in the school or centre, but a many ‘stand-alone’ computers.  All computers are separate and not linked to a network. In such a configuration you can choose the multi user licnese. A supplied DVD has the software on it and you can install it on 1 – 50 computers depending on the number of users you have chosen. The software is installed on all computers and on each computer the software will be protected with a unique soft(ware) key.

Network USB:

If the school has a network system and wishes to use it then this license option works as as follows:

  • The computers are linked with a server (is in fact also a computer but the server manages everything).
  • In such a configuration you can buy a network version.  
  • All computers in the network can use the software with a maximum of x computers at the same time. X is the number of users. 
  • This system works with a protection dongle (a USB key) that is plugged in into the server.
  • Depending on the server system, the software is installed only on the server (thin client system) or the software is installed on all computers in the network.
