Delivering Voices: a level of prestige, realness or official-ness

Hey Tek-ninjas! Here is something kind of cool! Since the merger between Tobii and Dynavox, the company has officially empowered 100,000 individuals across the globe with a voice.

Fredrik Ruben, President of Tobii Dynavox writes that "we are all super proud and should take a moment together to show each other appreciation for the hard work behind this number.", and perhaps with more grand-eloquence, Tara Rudnicki, President, North American Tobii Dynavox was quoted as saying "Woooohooooo!" 

I'm proud to have a part in this work. According to the Urban Dictionary (where the best definitions live) 100,000 is a level of prestige, realness or official-ness that people claim. Also used to rejoice in celebration of something positive.

Let's celebrate, and then let's get back to the the good work of delivering voices. Do you know someone who is unable to communicate? Maybe you ought to reach out to your local Tobii Dynavox Solution Consultant. If you are a speech therapist, they can help you, and if not, they can probably connect you with a speech therapist who knows the business of AAC. 

Happy Therapy!
