Opening and using a grid set in Grid 3
We have made a video guide to walk you through opening and using a grid set in Grid 3:
Using a grid set is easy and intuitive. Every grid set will look slightly different, but we will use this page from Symbol Talker A to show you the basics.
The large cell at the top is the Writing Area. This is where a message is composed. Clicking on this cell will either speak the message or move the cursor, depending on your settings.
The green cells are sentence starters. The white cells are Word list cells. Both green and white cells send text to the writing area to compose a message. In this case there is more vocabulary available than can fit on the page – click More to access more words.
The red cells are Command cells which carry out special functions. The Rest cell in the corner will pause input for eye gaze or head mouse users – click it again to resume.
Jump cells are used to navigate to other grids in the grid set. In this case, you can jump to the home grid by clicking Home, or to the Software grid.
Tip: To quickly find which grid a word is on, click on the Menu bar and Find Word.
