TapToTalk and Sign Language

Sign language is often used by children who use TapToTalk. If your child knows or is learning sign language, you may want to use the signs they know as pictures in TapToTalk. It's pretty easy to do that.

First, you need the images of the signs. The Lesson Tutor web site has American Sign Language (ASL) and Signed English (SE) symbol images that are "reproducible for educational, non-commercial use." To access these symbols here are two Lesson Tutor links:

1) Learn American Sign Language (ASL) and Signed English (SE)

2) American Sign Language (ASL) and Signed English (SE) Available Vocabulary Index

Second, you need to upload one of these symbol images to TapToTalk Designer. From the Lesson Tutor site, save the image on your computer by right-clicking and using the menu that pops up. Then upload it from your computer to TapToTalk Designer as you would any other picture file. For more information about adding your own pictures, see the Adding Your Pictures to the Picture Library topic under the Picture category in TapToTalk Designer Help (subscribers only) or in the TapToTalk Support Center (anyone).

Here are some other resource links you may find interesting:
So, yes, you can use sign language symbols in your TapToTalk albums.
