Create a new user in Grid 3

We have made a video guide to help you create a new user in Grid 3:

Creating a new user is the first thing you will do in Grid 3. Once you have made your user you can begin to customise their settings, grid sets, access methods, speech and much more.

You will be prompted to create a user profile when you first open the software:

new user 1

Give your user a name, and choose a language and voice. You can also add a picture if you wish.

new user 2

Tip: You can use the Camera option under Change Picture to take a photo with your webcam.

Select the type of grid sets your user will need by selecting from the six options. You can add or remove grid sets later, so don’t worry if you are unsure at this stage.

new user 3

Grid 3 has powerful prediction features to significantly speed up communication. To take advantage of these features, you will need to confirm your permission for Grid 3 to learn from your words, phrases and location. You can change these settings at any time when using Grid 3.

new user 4

Click Create User to finish.

Tip: A user can also temporarily prevent information about their activity being recorded by using the Private mode command.
