CoughDrop works hard to be a user-friendly program with features and functions to make it easy to support communication at school, in families, and everywhere else.
Did you know there are several quick actions built into the program to make moving within the app simple and easy? Learn about these options below.
Auto Populate Images on a Speech Board
When creating a new speech board, you can use the "tab" button on your keyboard to quickly move from the label on one button to the label on the next button. Just hit "tab" twice.
If you choose this option, CoughDrop will automatically populate your speech button with an image based on the button label you entered. The image will be selected from your chosen image library.
While you can tweak and edit images to fit your needs, this is a quick way to populate a full speech board.
Dashboard Connection to Edit Your Home Board
To quickly reach your home board on the "board actions" page so you can edit the board, you can hit the home board link on the left of your dashboard page or select the "current home board" link under your "boards" heading.
My Board Search Feature
If you are trying to locate a speech board that is owned by your account, you can use the search option on your account page to help you find that board.
Hit the "i" icon in the corner of the board to preview the board and be sure it is the one you are looking for then select "board actions" to go to the page where you can edit the board or select "try this board" to enter speak mode.
Public Board Search Feature
You can also search CoughDrop's library of public boards which have been created and shared by other CoughDrop users. Search for boards about jokes, the Olympics, football, Star Wars, animal sounds, music, and more.
Search results will show public boards available that relate to your search as well as boards within your own account that match your search.
