This tour is using the iPad device. If you are using an iPhone, or a different iPad model, you may notice some slight differences in appearance.

This light gray area is called the “Symbol Display Box”. This is where symbols will appear as you use the Symbol-It app.

As you press and hold the center blue “record” button, your words are translated and displayed in the Symbol Display Box.

There is a light blue “timer” that will display for up to 60 seconds. That is the length of time you may translate what you are speaking at one time.
