Version 2.3
The Vocabularies
Core Word is for users who can put words together
into sentences. It consists of a main page with the
most frequently used words in English
conversation, and folders of less frequently used
words, organized in categories. Core Word can be
configured from 9 to 64 buttons per page, and is
optimized for quick sentence creation and language
development.
Tap buttons to speak messages
and navigate to folders.
Tap the message window to
speak a message.
Basic Communication is for users who are at the
early requesting stage of language development,
and usually have not started to combine words to
form longer messages. Basic Communication can
be configured from 9 to 36 buttons per page, and
provides support for developing requesting,
commenting, early social interactions, and basic
academics.
You can also start with a blank vocabulary or, if you
are upgrading from an earlier version, you can
select your current vocabulary.
Note that if you later want to use another
vocabulary you can always go to Options and
create a new user. For more information about the
vocabularies see the manual.
