    A No, you can only do that for a Cheap Talk with Say it Play it in its name, like our #4055 4 plat communicator Say it Play it. All our Talkables are say it play it. #2400, 2401, 2402, 2403 & 8400.
  2. Q Can you just activate the message with the external switch without scanning?
    Asked by Toni on May 3, 2018 10:46 am
    A Only the 3050 Has jacks to access the messages via an external switch. But you would need a switch for each message. The 3051 8 message model only can access the messages via switch scanning or direct select.
