How to use Talking Cards:
On the main page you add your albums. Tap on Edit and select Add new album. For example you can start by adding an album to include things that your child is interested in or enjoy. Choose a TIMPIX image by choosing Choose image from library or add your own photo, and name your album. Press Done to exit Edit mode.
Tap into your new album and press Edit. Tap Add new item and select Add item from library to add TIMPIX images into your album. You can also add new cards with your own photos and sound by selecting Create new item. Press Done to exit the editing mode.
Like this you build your Talking Cards collections that your child can use for communication in choice-situations.
In Settings, you can select size of the cards and background color, enable password protection for Edit mode and multi-user mode to make separate card collections for different children.

Question: "I thought there were 500 images included in Talking Cards. Why do I only see a few images in the app?"
Answer: The albums and images you see when you open Talking Cards for the first time are examples of how the albums might look like. You will have to add albums and cards that you think will suit your child. Tap Edit, select Add new album or Add new item and select Choose image from library or Choose item from library. There you can access all the TIMPIX images that are included in Talking Cards.
Question: "How do I scroll between pages?"
Answer: You have to drag your finger 4-5 centimeters to scroll. We have developed Talking Cards especially for children with motor skill difficulties, and therefore we have made the scroll a little "sluggish" to prevent from accidental scrolling if you happen to slip a little with your finger when you tap a card. Many people have asked about the scroll, so we will definitely look over the scroll function before releasing the next version of Talking Cards.
Question: "Can I transfer my personal adaptation to another iPad, and how do I make a backup?"
Answer: We strongly recommend you to make a backup of your Talking Cards-alignment regularly. You can make a backup to your computer and also transfer it to another iPad. Information on how to do this are available here. Note that if you already have an adaptation on the other iPad, it will be replaced when you do this.
