Additional Specifications

PASS - or PRC Application and Support Software - allows you to create, modify, and save vocabularies and then load them into your communication device. Use PASS to create support materials, such as cheat sheets, manual boards, and vocabulary lists.
AAC support professionals use PASS to prepare content for their client's device without needing the device present.

PASS software version 11-11 requires you to register the program to allow the software to speak for 90 days. Once the PASS software is downloaded and installed, you will receive a message asking if you would like the 90 day speech trial.
