Writing with Symbols
Widgit's text-to-symbol technology means that text can easily be supported with appropriate symbols. Simply type and symbols appear. Widgit's symbol software uses text-to-symbol technology to accomplish a wide range of tasks, from easily creating professional looking printed materials to enabling learners to write using symbol support.
Software for learning
Widgit offers a range of ready-made software to support learning, catering for the whole age and ability range from Early Years Foundation Stage to adult learning. Our mind-mapping tool is particularly useful for visual learners when teaching study and learning skills.
Symbols on your website
Widgit has a number of tools that can add symbol support to your website or Virtual Learning Environment quickly and easily.
Using symbols to support text can greatly enhance the accessibility of your website.
Whether you are a government organisation, a charity, an information provider or an educational establishment, you can harness the support and clearer understanding of concepts and meanings that symbols provide.
SymbolWorld.org provides news, information and popular interest stories with complete symbol support. SymbolWorld is free and suitable for all ages.
Accessible Information Services
Our creative team works in partnership with organisations both at home and abroad to produce symbolised documents which cater for their individual requirements. We consult with the customer throughout the design process, creating new symbols where necessary, to ensure that the end result is fit for purpose and appropriate for different cultures and languages.
Symbol licensing for organisations
Widgit licenses symbols to organisations so that documents and other materials can be published and distributed.
Symbols in commercial products
We license symbols to other companies for use in their commercial products, for example their own software, online portals, VLEs and apps for a range of devices. Widgit has developed a very large and widely recognised symbol set which is used all over the world. This is value that can easily be added to your product in whatever format you require.
We offer licensing to companies such as architects and building contractors to help design their signage for public buildings and open spaces. We also can produce low-cost signage tiles.
Widgit training resources
Widgit offer a range of training and support to help meet the diverse needs of symbol users. From online helpsheets and videos to bespoke on-site sessions by experienced symbol practitioners if you require further training and support we will have a solution for you.
