The Auggie with its native Windows 7 :)


(Remember!  It's *just a PC running Windows*. So everything that loads/runs on your desktop PC will work on my Auggie!

1/17/13 Note:  Be aware that, in some cases, I use a refurbished tablet, that is fully warrantied (1 year) and fully functional, but might have some blemishes.  That is because the less expensive tablets running Windows 7 are not made anymore, as when I first started this project years ago.  New Windows 8 tablets would increase your cost to about $1500!

The iPad has made, and continues to make a HUGE impact on our fields of AT (Assistive Technology) and AAC (Augmentative & Alternative Communication).  It's finally pushed people out of, what I call, the 'big boys' mentality.  That is, there *are* other devices than those for $6,000 and up.  I climbed on the iPad 'bandwagon' right away, when it was released in April of 2010, and have been making accessories that mke it *truly* accessible and safe.

What was/is it about the iPad that 'breaks the mold'?  One thing is the great 'form factor' (weight, size, battery life).  Ease of use and easy availability of apps, as well as the price of those apps, has definitely made the iPad endearing.


However, in the time since its introduction, many people found that the iPad is not the tool for *their* needs.  There is a list of reasons why this is; click here to read them at the bottom of this page.  But the biggest impediment was that everything for the iPad *must* go through Apple.

So, responding to *your* requests, I'm importing my own tablet that fits the form factor, but does what 'YOU' have asked me for, to have it running Windows 7.  Now it's just like *any* PC in your domain.  Remember, my Auggies are *just PC's running Windows*.  If you keep that in mind, you'll answer a lot of your own questions.
