How do I share my CoughDrop board with others?

CoughDrop allows you to make your boards publicly visible so anyone can find, copy and modify them. In addition, it may make sense for your to share your board outside of CoughDrop via email or social networks. This is a great way to help others find and benefit from the boards you have created.

Make sure your board is public first. When editing hit "More" then select "Edit Details" and make sure that "Anyone can see this board" is checked. Save the board. Then you can copy the link address for your board and share it with others.

Share with an un-connected CoughDrop user

If you want to share your speech board with a CoughDrop user who is not connected to your account as a supporter, you can do that by opening the board to the board actions page and then hitting the "share" button.
