System Requirements

Internet Speed

We recommend accessing Widgit Online on an internet connection with a speed of 1Mbps or above.


Supported Browsers

Widgit Online is supported in the following browsers:

  • Mozilla Firefox (current and the previous major version)
  • Google Chrome (current and the previous major version)
  • Internet Explorer (version 11 and above)
  • Safari (current and the previous major version, Mac OS X only)

Microsoft Edge is not fully supported

Due to a bug in the current version of Edge, Microsoft's new browser included in Windows 10, it is not currently possible to create or edit symbol documents in this browser. However, the rest of Widgit Online, including the grid editor, is supported.

We hope that this will be fixed in a future version of Microsoft Edge. Until then, Windows 10 also includes Internet Explorer 11, so for document editing we recommend using that or the latest version of any of the above browsers.

Other Browsers

Widgit Online may also run without problem in other browsers, such as recent versions of Opera and older versions of Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari (including Windows versions). However, we do not officially support or test in these browsers.


Tablets, Mobile Phones and Other Devices

Browsing, viewing and speaking documents is supported on iPads and Android devices in modern browsers.

Editing documents is not currently supported on iPads and Android devices.
