Xpress Tip: Editing Slot Symbols

By: on May 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

Have you ever looked a symbol on slot filler and thought… “Hmmm, wish I could change the symbol.” Or have you added a new slot filler and wanted to change the symbol that appeared? For example, I added the book Hungry Caterpillar to my books slot filler, but I don’t think the augmented communicator I am working with would recognize the symbol.

Unlike modifying a button, the slot fillers are modified from the Vocabulary List within the Dashboard. Here are the 

steps I am going to follow to change the symbol on my slot filler:

  1. Select  Dashboard.
  2. Select Setup.
  3. Select Data Management.
  4. Select Vocabulary List Browser.
  5. Select the Vocabulary List that contains your slot filler.
  6. Select your slot filler.
  7. Select the Task Button on the lower right.
  8. Select Edit Symbol.
  9. Search and select the symbol you wish the slot filler to have, and then select OK at the top.

10. Select Close until all menus have been closed.

Now, when I access the books slot fillers, I see the symbol I have selected. For more information and step-by-step directions on changing the symbol on slot fillers, click here.
