You can also type using the computer’s keyboard. When the sentence is completed, it is spoken with high quality synthetic speech. Students can click on a word in the Clicker grid to hear it before using it in a sentence. With Clicker 7, teachers can create talking books for students developing early literacy skills.

Using symbols
If you are using symbols, Clicker is the perfect tool to give easy access to them, whether you are using a mouse, touch screen or switches. Because it’s so easy to add graphics to Clicker cells, you can create grids using any pictures you like, including symbols.

Communication grids
You can create your own communication aid with Clicker grids. Link together as many grids as you like. There is no limit to the number of symbols you can access. For example, you may want to have a grid for food, another for drinks, another for emotions, and so on. You can mix together different types of symbols and other graphics on the same grid, and you can choose whether or not to display text underneath. And, of course, the grids can be changed easily at any time.

To support writing
You can use Clicker Grids containing symbols with any word processor, but only Clicker Writer displays both the symbol and the text. Symbols are provided that have been designed for special needs communication - the Mayer-Johnson PCS set. Mayer-Johnson also makes an animated PCS set available separately. You can use these sets of symbols in Clicker to use it as a communication tool.

Another option for symbols is the American Sign Language Animations. This library features over 200 words in these learning categories: About Me, Time, Feelings, Holidays and Family. Use these animations to help students learn word meanings and make the connections between English text and American Sign Language.
