Symbols are used widely to help children and adults with learning difficulties. Their use ranges from helping children who have difficulties learning to spell, through to children and adults who are not able to use traditional text as a means of reading and self-expression.

Widgit Software have developed software that can turn text into Widgit Symbols. Our Devon Libraries page on Computers adapted for specific needs has more information on where this program can be tried.
