New to Proloquo2Go 6: Symbols and expanded search

An app like Proloquo2Go depends on symbols that are clear, identifiable, and relevant. This is important in getting an AAC learner engaged and interested in the system. It’s also necessary to provide all of our users with vocabulary that recognizes their daily life.
