When you download TalkingTiles you are automatically provided with free sample pages from various categories in our Library. You can edit these pages and add more speech pages simply by clicking on the edit icon three times until you are in “Run Mode.”
By using the Edit, Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, and Help buttons in the Edit Mode you can move around the tiles, change their pictures and words, and add new tiles. While the symbol library is quite extensive, it doesn’t always have exactly what you want – like a picture of your Aunt Milly or a picture of your dog Gus. TalkingTiles allows you to download photos from your computer so that you can use the images that are personal to you.
Other custom features that you can use inTalkingTiles is the ability to connect a tile to a website and record your own voice. With the touch of a tile, you can link right from your app to educational games.
The voice of a familiar person can also be recorded, making it personal. When editing a tile, simply hitting the “Record” option will allow you to do this.
Now that you have all these ways to customize tiles, you can implement them into personalized speech pages. Create pages specific to your needs. For example, you could create a page called “About Me” that provides such information as the user’s name, address, phone number, family members, and doctor’s name as shown in the image below.
Other ideas of pages you could create are Food, Things at Home, Things at School, Things you want to do or Places you want to go. Speech pages can also be made in routines for a child such as brushing teeth or bedtime. The options really are endless!!
