SymbolSupport is a utility that adds symbols to text. As text is typed, symbols are automatically added. Text can also be copied from pre-existing written materials and pasted into SymbolSupport where symbols will instantly be added. Two symbol libraries are included: Slater Literacy Support Pictures™ and Attainment’s Image Library. Plus, images are easily accessible through your camera roll and built-in internet search.

SymbolSupport Lite is a separate, free app that can receive, read, and print documents that have been created in the SymbolSupport full version. SymbolSupport Lite cannot edit documents.

Both SymbolSupport and SymbolSupport Lite read documents with a high-quality text-to-speech voice and word-by-word highlighting. This support helps students better understand class assignments. Documents can be locked to prevent them from being altered.

Files created with the original SymbolSupport app are compatible with this release. SymbolSupport will open and convert older documents so they’re ready to use again!
