A simple and elegant assistive-technology solution, the Boogie Board helps those with a speech impairment to communicate their thoughts to others. Jot LCD eWriters are ideal for those with vocal communication difficulties, such as the deaf, hard of hearing, stroke victims, etc. The Boogie Board LCD eWriters have been endorsed for non-audible communication by various organizations for ALS, vocal cord paralysis, stroke victims, etc.
The Boogie Board Jot 8.5 LCD eWriter has a reusable, bright, high-contrast, writing surface to quickly jot down notes, messages, phone numbers, or lists. Easily take it to-go or place it in convenient locations around the home or office.
The Boogie Board Jot 8.5 LCD eWriter is the flagship Boogie Board product. In addition to offering the brightest LCD, it's the perfect size for notes, lists, reminders, personal messages, and more. Organizations representing people with certain impediments, such as ALS, vocal cord paralysis, stroke victims, etc. endorse them for a number of different purposes, including communicating, developing fine motor skills, and practicing memory exercises.
The new, improved, high-contrast writing surface creates an almost luminescent line for writing notes, lists, and reminders. And because the Boogie Board Jot 8.5 does not require power to create or maintain an image, no on-off button is necessary. Pressing the erase button supplies a small amount of power to clear the image. The free-for-download Jot mobile app allows you to scan, edit, save, and share content that you've created with others.
Boogie Board eWriters provide a natural, pen-on-paper, writing experience. They eliminate the need for paper, scratch pads, and sticky notes - you simply write and erase. The LCD writing screen is engineered to feel just like writing with pen on paper. The image stays as long as you need it to and can be easily erased with the touch of a button. Create and erase again and again, without the need to charge or connect.
While The Boogie Board Jot 8.5 does not connect to a computer and cannot save images, you are able to save and edit what is written on the display through an app that is available for free on the App Store and Google Play. It does not save to the device itself.
Download the free Jot mobile app which quickly captures writing or drawing created on your Boogie Board. Simply take a photo from the app and see your work converted into a clean black-on-white image to save and access anytime from your iOS or Android device. The new, high-contrast writing surface allows the Jot App to scan the surface, separate the writing from the background, and create a black-and-white file for you to edit, save and share.
