Communication programs, games and apps


SymWriter is an easy-to use symbol writing program. Symbols appear above the words as you type and ‘smart symbolising’ analyses the text to help select the correct symbols. 

You can drop in photos and images to illustrate your document, or add them to a word to replace a symbol for more specific meaning.
