More Information

  • Instructions
    - Make sure that you have fresh batteries in the unit and that they are installed according to proper polarity. You will hear a tone emitted from the unit when you install the batteries correctly
    - Make sure that the volume is turned up to an audible level
    - Make sure that there is nothing inhibiting the depression of the switch plate OR holding the switch plate down
    - If you are using an external capability switch, make sure that there is a tight connection between the switch and the unit (there should be no gaps). Especially check this when using adapters. Any gaps will cause the unit to function incorrectly or not work at all
    - If you are using an external capability switch, test that switch with another device to rule out the switch as the source of the problem. Do the same with any adapters that you may be using
  • Cleaning Instructions
    - Can be wiped clean with any mild household multipurpose, non-abrasive cleaner and disinfectant. We recommend Simple Green, which is a non toxic biodegradable all-purpose cleaner
    - Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they will scratch the surface of the unit
    - Do not submerge the unit, as it will damage the electrical components
  • Operation
    Battery Installation

    - Carefully turn unit over and remove the small screw from the battery compartment. Slide the battery compartment cover off. Observing polarity, install four AAA size batteries (Not included) into the holder. Use alkaline batteries only (e.g. Duracell or Energizer brand). Do not use rechargeable batteries or any other type of batteries because they supply lower voltage and the unit will not perform properly. Never mix old and new batteries together or different brands or types together. Replace the battery compartment cover and replace the screw
    - Make sure that the volume is at an audible level by turning the on/off/volume knob clockwise. Set the Random/Sequencer/Single switch to Sequence. Please Note: The Random/Sequencer/Single switch only has two positions; Sequencer/Single position controls both the Sequencer and Single switch functions
    Single Message Recording
    - Press and hold the red record button on the bottom of the unit. Next press and hold the round plate switch on the top of the unit. Speak your message clearly, with your mouth preferably about 6" from the microphone (the small fuzzy circle on the back side of the unit) then release the plate, but continue to hold the red record button on the bottom of the unit. Do not release the red record button if you wish to continue the sequence of messages. If only recording a Single message release both
    Sequential Message Recording
    - If you wish to continue recording additional messages, press the switch plate again and record your next message. For each new message you must release only the top round switch plate after each message is recorded. When finished recording release both round plate and Record button. You have a maximum of 250 recordings on this unit. Messages can be any length the units maximum total recoding time is 300 seconds
    Message Playback
    - To use the device for playback, set the Random/ Sequence/Single switch to the desired position. Each time the user presses and releases the switch plate on the top of the unit, they will hear the messages recorded either in the sequence in which they were recorded or randomly depending on your settings. There is also a 1/8" female jack that will accept most external capability switches. When using an external switch, make sure there are no gaps between the connections, push cables in tightly
    - When you are done using the unit, turn it off. If you will not be using the unit for a prolonged period of time, remove the batteries from the battery compartment
    - A removable clear plastic cover can be used to hold picture icons or words. To remove the cover, carefully lift up on one side of the clear cover. Place your icon then place the cover over the plate and press the cover down gently. Do not hit or press the cover down, doing so can damage the unit and make removal of the cover difficult
    - The Small Talk Sequencer can also be activated by another external capability switch, via the switch input jack located on the side of the unit. Make sure your switch is plugged in all the way with no gaps. External switch activation will replicate as if the large switch plate on the device was depressed
