Interested in a Trial Period? We have two choices of microphones to meet your students’ needs. Each trial period is $99 plus a deposit of $300 or $400 for loan of your choice of teacher microphone system. You receive a 30-day software trial and 45-day loan of a wireless microphone system for $399 or $499. To receive the full refund for the $300/$400 security deposit if the trial period is not successful, the microphone system must be returned in good condition within 45 days from the day it was delivered to your facility. You will be charged an additional fee of $5 per day for any extra days beyond the 45-day time period, up to the full value of the unit.

Trial with the Dual Wireless Microphone System Supports team teaching and/or small group learning

The Dual Microphone System is the choice to select if you will be using Interact-AS in team teaching situations, or if the student needs to connect the audio to an ear-bud, personal streamer, or the transmitter of an FM/DM system. The Dual microphone kit includes two high-fidelity wireless microphones for use in classroom situations: (1) a behind-the-neck micro-element headset with a belt-worn transmitter for the main teacher/person talking, plus (2) a wireless handheld microphone with a built-in transmitter for a second teacher/aide/or use by students during group discussions. Both microphones can be simultaneously connected to your Interact-AS system. Additional microphones and microphone headsets are available below. The dual-channel receiver comes with a built-in digitizer and analog output ports. The system also includes four complete sets of rechargeable batteries; the recharging system for both microphones; a carrying case; and all required cables and connectors. Additional microphones and microphone headsets are available below.

  Trial with the Dual Wireless Microphone System $99 software trial + $400 loan of microphone + S/H

Trial with the Nano Wireless Microphone System  A simple to use and tiny solution.The Nano system does not have all the functionality of the Dual system, but it is the smallest form factor, has no cables or battery for the receiver, and it is the easiest system for the student to use. The Nano wireless system includes an extremely small receiver, one that’s about the size of a USB thumb drive. There are no cables or switches on the receiver, just plug it into a USB port and your set. The headset is the same as the Dual system, a behind-the-neck style with a micro element. Also included in this kit are two complete sets of rechargeable batteries, the recharging system for the batteries, a carrying case, and all required cables and connectors. PLEASE NOTE: the Nano receiver does not have a built-in audio port for connectivity to hearing aids, cochlear implants, or FM/DM transmitters. Additional microphones and microphone headsets are available below. A handheld microphone is also available for the Nano system, but it cannot be used simultaneously with the headset microphone system. It takes about 15 seconds to switch captioning access from the headset microphone to the handheld microphone.

Trial with the Nano Wireless Microphone System $99 software trial + $300 loan of microphone + S/H
