PCS High Contrast symbols in Grid

You can now access PCS High Contrast symbols in Grid. These symbols use bright colours and a simplified level of detail to make them easier to see for users with visual impairments.

The symbols were designed in conjunction with Linda Burkhart and Gayle Porter, the creator of PODD (Pragmatic Organisation of Dynamic Displays), based on their experience of working with individuals with a wide range of complex needs.

This symbol library includes over 1,500 additional symbols for a wide range of topics, including food, clothing, games, community, school, social interaction and much more.

  1. Update to the latest version of Grid
  2. Open a grid set and enter edit mode
  3. Select a cell
