We're Listening - Now You Can Search the TapToTalk Picture Library

The TapToTalk Standard Picture Library has over 2000 pictures in it. So, naturally, a frequent customer question is: "Can we search the library to find the picture we want?" You didn't like our answer ("Errr... no."), and neither did we. So, we have added search to the Picture Library page on taptotalk.com.

Putting pictures in categories often helps people find the picture they want, but not always. What is one person's logical category is not another person's. So this search function is our first attempt to improve the situation. It searches on the name and category for the word you enter. It is not quite as smart as Google, but we think it is a step forward. We hope you agree.

The search box is on the top-right of the Picture Library page. You get to that page by using the Picture Library link in the Customer Zone on taptotalk.com. As with all search functions, you may have to try different ways of finding what you want. For example, if you enter bathroom, you'll get a bunch of pictures. But if you enter toilet, you'll just get one (this seems to be a very popular picture). We display the category and picture name so you can then find it in TapToTalk Designer.

We do plan to build this into TapToTalk Designer at some point, but we'd like to get your feedback first. This way you find pictures more easily sooner rather than later, and if it needs some more tweaking we can get your feedback.

We love to get your product suggestions. So please send them to us. Use the Product Suggestion link in the Customer Zone on taptotalk.com.
