SymbolSupport (app)

SymbolSupport is an iPad and iPhone app that translates documents into symbols. Documents are read by text to speech and each word is highlighted as it is read.  As a document is typed or pasted into the app an image appears with each word automatically. These images can be swapped with another image in the symbol library, your own photos, or images from the Internet. The app will remember the image preferences for these words in the future. This is helpful for social stories, step-by-step instructions, and class assignments.
