At Tobii Dynavox, we know that our AAC community is diverse, and it is important to us that each of our community members feels represented when they use our products. As part of our commitment to diversification, we were excited to collaborate with Acapela Group, as well as with AssistiveWare and PRC-Saltillo, to bring Tamira, and now Darius, the first African American adult digital AAC voices, to life!
