PITTSBURGH, May 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DynaVox (OTC:DVOX) today announced results for the third quarter ended March 29, 2013.

Net sales were $14.9 million, a decrease of 38%, compared to net sales of $24.0 million for the third quarter ended March 30, 2012.

The Company's gross margin for the third quarter decreased 230 basis points to 70.0%, compared to a gross margin of 72.3% in the third quarter of the prior fiscal year. The decrease in margin is mainly the result of lower sales volume in both devices and special education software and changes within the mix of product sales.
