Choosing between Emerging, Symbol and Text Communication
Choose the level you believe to be most appropriate for the user, then mix and match as you wish between all page sets.8 Regardless of the level you chose initially, elements from the various levels can very easily be used together, by adding or removing individual page sets to be accessible from the user’s home page.
The Emerging Communication level in Communicator 5 contains activities, visual scenes and simple communication page sets.
The Symbol Communication level in Communicator 5 contains an extensive selection of pre-made grid-based symbol communication page sets. Some of them have added functionality such as telephony, e-mail and music player.
The text communication level is for individuals who are literate, and write their messages by means of an on-screen keyboard.
