Grid Player by Sensory Software
Play your grids on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch
Grid Player is a new App that enables you to use resources from The Grid 2 on other devices – iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and on other portable communication aids. The Grid Player App is free to download from the Apple App store. The Grid 2 for PC is available from ZYGO-USA for $735.
Users will require The Grid 2 software to do any editing or to create resources for use with Grid Player. You create and modify vocabulary pages on your Windows PC using The Grid 2, and save the resources on the Sensory Software site.
You download Grid Player for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch via the App Store to the device. Once they have downloaded the App, users will need to create an account on the Sensory Software Online Grids site in order to upload/download resources.
Grid Player is dedicated communication software so many of the commands from The Grid 2 will not work. The Grid 2 has been changed to include a ‘Compatibility Mode’ where compatible commands will be available when editing page sets for Grid Player.
Grid Player includes both standard and symbol prediction. It will learn words as they are used and more commonly selected words will appear higher up in the list of prediction cells. As well as completing the word currently being typed, Grid Player will also predict the next word in your sentence.
Which symbols can I use with Grid Player?
Grid Player currently supports the same symbol libraries as The Grid 2 - SymbolStix, Widgit, PCS, and the Sensory Software Snaps photo library. If the symbol library requires a license then this must be entered when signed into Online Grids.
Which voices are available?
High quality, natural sounding Acapela voices are included with The Grid 2 and Grid Player.
Grid Player comes with three complete grid sets – Symbol Talker Level A, Symbol Talker Level B, and Text Talker. The symbol based grid sets are complete dynamic screen vocabularies, available in two different abilities. To make changes to these grid sets, or use other grid sets with Grid Player, The Grid 2 for Windows PC is required.
All Grid Sets will work with Grid Player but only the following commands are included in version 1.0:
- Jump to
- Jump back
- Jump home
- Self-closing grids (pop-ups)
- Auto-content word list
- More auto-content
- Copy to clipboard
- Type (letter, word or sentence)
