Quite a few folks asked how I did this after I posted about it on social media on 7/1/21 (YouTube: https://youtu.be/hX3CNaKrBos, Facebook: https://bit.ly/3ykUP2h (also in the AAC for the SLP and AppPeeps groups) and Instagram: https://bit.ly/3hyWpXn) so I made this tutorial.
This TPT purchase includes:
- A handout (3 page PDF)
- Access to a Tutorial Video (12:34, unlisted on YouTube) that shows the whole process for cropping symbols, finding GIFs, converting the GIFs to videos, how to save them, how to add those to buttons in WordToob, GoTalk Now and TouchChat, the pros and cons of each of those options, etc…
- Access to a secured Google Drive folder with all cropped symbols and GIFs converted to videos used to make the 84 button board in WordToob plus a few extra videos used in GoTalk Now and TouchChat
- Access to a secured Google Drive folder with the GoTalk Now Core Board with GIFs .gtbz file that can be imported into GoTalk Now or GoTalk Now Plus (plus info about how to get my hack for importing a single page book into the GoTalk Now Lite app)
Apps are obviously included in this TPT purchase.
For those who just want access to the GIF videos, those can be played directly from the Google Drive or you can save a copy.
The cropped symbols and GIF videos are for non-commercial use and may NOT be used to create products on TPT, Boom Cards or other platforms (even if they those products are free), cannot be posted on websites or saved out in shared folders online or on social media. Access to these cropped symbols and GIF videos is only being provided since there isn’t a way for me to share the WordToob board that I created. This will allow you to create your own board more quickly.
