Communicate: Symwriter, model R1WD109, is a voice output symbolic word processor program designed for use by individuals with cognitive or learning disabilities. This program enables teachers, parents, and therapists to adapt written materials with symbols to create stories, sentence strips, directions, recipes, schedules, songs, poems, and worksheets. The program can also be used to create computer-based activities with voice output and symbol support, such as topical writing and sentence building, spelling and counting activities, assessments, and cross-curricular exercises.

Beginning writers or individuals unable to recognize text can write with symbol support and benefit from speech feedback, while text users benefit from a talking word processing program.
