About us

Widgit Symbols and software titles are used in a wide range of locations, including thousands of schools, healthcare settings and homes, to support communication, education and understanding.

From our origins as a family company we have always believed everybody should have fair and equal access to information. Thanks to developments in technology, legislation and public attitudes, our cutting-edge titles and unique symbol set are supporting more people every day.

At the heart of our company are the Widgit Symbols, a bank of over 18,000 images specifically designed to support written text. Our ever-expanding symbol set follows a set of simple language rules that enable users to independently learn new concepts.  Translated into many languages, the Widgit Symbols are used worldwide to help users of all ages, abilities and backgrounds who have difficulty with text or communication.

We have come a long way since releasing our pioneering "Writing With Symbols" software. We now have a range of easy-to-use titles which enable teachers, parents and professionals to create their own personalised symbol materials.

For bespoke projects, our specialist design team can work in partnership with your organisation to create a range of accessible symbol materials which cater for your individual requirements and follow your brand guidelines.

At Widgit we desire to be better tomorrow than today. We take pride in providing the most innovative technology solutions, as well as a personalised service to help provide the best results and advice.
