Phrase mode in MyTalkTools Mobile: This tutorial demonstrates activation and basic phrase mode functionality. Phrase mode can be used in conjunction with a switch, but this tutorial will focus solely on activating phrase mode.
First Enter your iDevice Settings.
Scroll down in your iDevice settings to MyTalkTools.
Scroll down in the MyTalkTools settings menu to Other.
Select "Phrase Mode"
Select "All on".
Press the Home Button on your iDevice and open up MyTalkTools application to begin working with Phrase Mode.
Begin selecting cells you want to use while constructing your phrase. In this case we selected "Yes".
You should now see "Yes" displayed in the Phrase Bar. Now select "No".
Yes and No will now be displayed in the Phrase bar in the same order in which you selected them. While 'yes' followed by 'no' would not be a typical phrase, you can see how simple it is to add words. Construct phrases in this manner until the phrase is completed. To Play your phrase, select the Triangle "Play Phrase" button at the left of the Phrase Bar.
The iDevice will now play all the cells you selected in your phrase sequentially. If you have optional Acapela voices when you select a cell you containing an audio file and text, the Audio file is played. If the cell contains no audio file and you have optional Acapela voices, the sentence bar will play TTS for the text associated with the cell. It is possible for your phrase to contain both digital, human voice and synthesized text to speech.
To Edit your phrase as you move from board to board, you can select the X button at the right of the Phrase bar. One tap of the x will delete one word from the end of the phrase. A double click on the x will delete the entire phrase.
After selecting the X button twice, the Phrase Bar is now empty and you are able to construct a brand new Phrase.
