How can I prioritize vocabulary?

Proloquo2Go allows you to arrange vocabulary that is used most frequently "closest" to the user, while keeping less frequently used vocabulary farther away but still accessible with additional navigation. This is the basis for Proloquo2Go's VocaPriority™ feature. By using priority levels (Primary, Secondary and Storage), you can organize the vocabulary by frequency of use. Buttons that are frequently used should be placed in the Primary level, while buttons that are used occasionally should be placed in the Secondary level. Buttons that are infrequently used should be placed in Storage. Storage is not visible to the user, but contains all the buttons that are not used by the user or for which the user is not yet ready. As a user becomes more proficient, you can promote buttons out of storage to the appropriate level.

To prioritize vocabulary, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Edit button (the pencil) to enter Edit Mode. 

    Note that you can easily navigate through the vocabulary while in Edit Mode. To enter a folder in Edit Mode, simply tap the folder twice. 
  2. Tap the Arrange tab.
  3. Tap a button or folder to select it. You can select multiple buttons and folders at once. A blue check mark will appear on each button or folder to show they are selected. 
  4. Do one of the following:

    *Tap Move to Primary to promote a button or folder to the Primary level. 
    *Tap Move to Secondary to promote or demote a button or folder to the Primary level.
    *Tap Move to Storage to demote a button or folder to the Storage level.
  5. You can view the contents of the Primary, Secondary, and Storage levels by tapping the 1, 2, and Storage (the file drawer) icons in the top left corner of the screen. 
  6. When you are finished editing, tap the Done button. 

Note, if you don't see the Edit button, please open Options View:

*To open Options View on an iPad, tap the Options button (the gears) on the bottom toolbar.

*To open Options View on an iPhone or iPod touch, tap the Views button (double overlapping squares) and then tap Options.

Next, tap Restrictions (scroll down if necessary), and then toggle Edit Mode to ON.
