Release notes for the latest Grid update

New features

  • All Acapela, CereProc and Nuance voices that are available in Grid 3 and Grid for iPad are now included in our software for free
  • PCS symbols are now available in Grid 3 and Grid for iPad, free of charge. This will give you access to the standard symbol libraries from Widgit, SymbolStix and PCS with no additional cost
  • The new “Find word” feature helps you find a word within your grid set, and teaches you how to get there. You can use this feature to hide and reveal words from your vocabulary too. Find word is also available as a command that you can add to the keyboard in your grid set. 
  • Turn on “Fast typing” for a quicker dwell speed on your keyboard when using eye gaze or a pointer. Fast typing won’t affect the other cells in your grid set, helping to avoid accidental selections. There is also a “Fast typing on cell” command if you want to add a short dwell to other cells too. (To use this feature you will need to turn on Fast typing in Settings – Access – Eye gaze/Pointer – Activation)
