Remote editing

Our free remote editing feature can help you to support people who are using Grid 3 and Grid for iPad.

Remote editing gives you the ability to make changes to an AAC users device from anywhere in the world, without taking their voice away while you edit.  All you need is an internet connection and the free trial version of Grid 3 – and when your trial expires you will still be able to use the remote editing part of the software for free.

The best part about remote editing is that the AAC user can continue to communicate while you make changes to their version of Grid.

You can have multiple people remotely editing the same person’s grid sets – meaning that parents, teachers, therapists or friends can support an AAC user at any time.

Here’s a video to show you how it works:

Top tip: It’s always worth backing up the user before any editing. Here’s an article on backing up users in Grid for iPad and Grid 3.
