New User Interface for the Compact 6 HD

Since the introduction of the Compact 6 HD Speech, the manufacturer has been working on adding accessories and improving the product line. Today, we are happy to announce that the Compact 6 HD with a great new user interface is ready.

What’s new?

Easy Mode and Advanced Mode

For the Compact 6 HD, we introduce the option to choose between using the unit in Easy Mode or Advanced Mode. You can switch between these modes at any time by pressing and holding the Mode button.

As the name suggests, Easy Mode is user-friendly, easy to use and is the default mode. Users will only see buttons they use the most: contrast, magnification, and camera switch. In Advanced Mode, users have access to more advanced buttons and options in addition to the ‘easy’ buttons, such as the Menu and Clock. In the Settings Menu, users have the option to configure the unit to their needs, for instance, color, buttons, dark or light theme, Miracast, etc.

Please refer to ‘Updated Menu’ below for more information about the changes within the Menu.

Revamped & Customizable User Interface

We developed a new user interface for the Compact 6 HD with bigger buttons and increased contrast. Additionally, users have the option to personalize the user interface, by choosing their preferred color theme (Light or Dark) and button bar position (Bottom or Side).

Updated Menu

Upon first opening the Menu, users will see the menu items they’ll use the most. Additionally, we merged the More… menu with the Settings menu for increased simplicity.

New, Larger Speaker

We improved the speaker in the Compact 6 HD, resulting in higher quality audio. When using OCR, the quality of the speech is much clearer and the volume can be set louder, so users can better hear the speech and work with the unit more comfortably.


New Color for the Back Cover

You will recognize the updated units from the color of the back cover. For the previous units, the back cover was light grey. For the new and improved units, the color is white, similar to the USB connector.
