  • Easy editing. Creating and personalising resources in Grid 3 is so simple and intuitive. You can achieve everything, from editing a cell to creating whole new grid sets, within only a few clicks. It is quicker than ever to make changes on the go using the touch-friendly interface.
  • Beautifully simple. Grid 3 not only has an intuitive user interface but it looks great too. The design and styling make your grids look fantastic and simpler to use.
  • Endless possibilities. Whether you’re new to assistive technology or a technology whizz, Grid 3 supports you through your day-to-day life, with ready-made grid sets available for you to get started straight away.
  • First of its kind. After years of research and development Grid 3 raises the bar for assistive technology, featuring patented technology not available in any other software. Grid 3 is a complete software solution and provides a breadth of tools and features that has never been available before.
  • The power to have your own voice. Grid 3 software powers high-tech communication aids; turning text and symbols into speech. We have a library of voices that can be tailored to create a voice that belongs to you.
  • Keep in touch with people around the world. Using accessible tools for email, Skype and popular social media options like Facebook, you can keep in touch with family, friends and colleagues all over the world.
  • Tools for work, school and home. Whether you use symbols or text to communicate, there are applications and grid sets that will support you to achieve in the workplace and while studying. From powerful Computer Control tools that give you full access to Windows through to resources for people developing the early skills to use a communication aid.
  • Control your environment. Grid 3 also includes our Servus Environment Control technology. So if you use Grid 3 on a Grid Pad or dedicated Servus device you can operate any compatible accessory, from televisions and telephones to heaters and beds.
  • Designed for access. The accessible design of Grid 3 means that your dashboard, Grid Explorer, and every grid set is constructed using cells which can be accessed using eye gaze, touch, switch and pointing devices.
  • Bespoke to you. Grid 3 is ready to go straight out of the box, but has been designed so you can edit your grid sets to suit your needs. So whether you would prefer larger text, high contrast colours or larger cells to target, everything is possible.
