I remember seeing a pamphlet here about Linguaduc where, even though it had a different control, I think there was a label for a wheelchair. Does anyone remember that Huh? Huh?

I'm not familiar with this cart. Can someone give me some background on it? What is it for? What is the significance of the wheelchair?

I had some photos of curious items somewhere. If anyone also has a photo of that Arcade machine with Odyssey games? Roll Eyes

I think it was a cartridge designed for the physically disabled to communicate with a single touch.

That would be cool. Do you know if it would work in my US console? I'd love to take a look at one since I work with disabled children.

LINGUADUC doesn't work on NTSC consoles  Sad

Do you have the cartridge? If so, can you put up a video of it in use for me? I'm really curious about how it works.

Thanks! How is that different than Type N Tell? Or Keyboard Creations?

Type & Tell: You type a word on the keyboard and the voice module speaks.

Keyboard creation: You type text on the keyboard and it is displayed by scrolling on the screen.

Linguaduc: A second person selects the cursor speed on the keyboard (0-9) and the disabled person can select the letter when the cursor is on it to form a word. Using the action button only (or another system like the detector that is connected to a sensitive sensor that sends a pulse to the Videopac computer when the sensor is touched with the tongue or finger). There appears to be the only cheapest communication system in the 1980s for paraplegics / quadriplegics persons.

Philips told us in the past, Videopac is more than just a videogame. And it`s true.

Programms like Traffic 1 and 2 for schools and Linguaduc for disabled persons are unique for that time.  Cool

Thanks for the explanation. Having never seen the Linguaduc cart in action, I had no frame of reference.

Sounds like a very cool idea. I do a lot of work with kids that don't have language capabilities. Normally, I try sign language first, but I've also taught the use of speech generating devices on mobile devices. And this definitely sounds like it was a precursor to those kinds of things. It is a shame that I can't play with it myself.

Now, about those Traffic games. Is there a YouTube video of them? Again, more curiosity.
