Personal Speakers

Alongside high-quality speakers for voice reproduction, Grid Pad 13 includes two

Providing the option for discrete audio feedback without the need for a headset – great for anyone who uses switch scanning in Grid.

As you scan through your grid set, audio feedback tells you which cell you have highlighted before selecting it.

LED Indicator Lights

LEDs show when your battery is running low and when switches are activated.

Custom Audio

Custom designed high displacement speakers add richness and clarity to your voice – so you can be heard in all environments.

Powerful bass and dedicated speaker chambers ensure the quality of your voice reproduction is loud and clear
