Available Image Libraries
CoughDrop makes it possible for users to access multiple image libraries to find pictures for use on CoughDrop speech boards. These libraries include:
- Sclera (high contrast)
- the Noun Project
You can also choose to access LessonPix or Picture Communication Symbols (PCS) images if you have subscribed to these accounts.
To change all of the images on a particular speech board to match your desired image library, first be sure you have your own copy of the speech board. If you have created the board, you are the owner of that board and can adjust it however you like.
