Using Siri is a fantastic way to quickly populate Clicker Communicator grids with words and symbols.
In this example, Aaron is a non-verbal elementary school student. He uses Clicker Communicator on his iPad® to take part in classroom discussions and to relay his needs / wants.
Aaron uses the Widgit Symbol version of Clicker Core 2. Clicker Communicator comes with 3 Core Vocabulary Sets, and the Widgit Symbol library is available as an in-app purchase.
Here is Aaron’s home grid:
Aaron is fascinated by all forms of transportation. Helen, the teaching assistant who works with Aaron, wanted to quickly add an appropriate page of words / symbols.
First Helen went into Edit View, tapped Add and added Transportation as a topic.
This automatically created a new page for Aaron’s transportation items and placed a link to it in the bottom right hand corner of his Core 2 home page.
Helen selected the Transportation category and tapped the T+ button. She then used Siri to enter text by simply speaking all the types of transportation she could think of.
Tapping Done completed the procedure.
Clicker Communicator automatically found the symbols for all the words, and around a minute after starting, Helen had the finished product!
