What if you are one of millions of people who have the first generation iPad (no camera)? The process for grabbing an icon has more steps, but is easy to learn. For this blog, my computer is a MacBook Pro OS X. The screen capture process is a bit different with a PC--that's a later blog. I can only do one thing at a time!
First, if you want the Boardmaker icons, you should have Boardmaker loaded on your computer.
|Go to Finder, Click Go, Scroll to Utilities|
You will then want to go to the Utilities Folder in Finder. Click on "Go" and scroll Down to find "Utilities".
|Click on 'Grab'|
A window will pop up----click on 'Grab'
Your screen capture image will save as .tiff. This is no problem.
The next steps are easy. Email the image to yourself as an attachment. Or if you can, sync your images (I don't do that because my iPad is synced with different computer.) Open your email on your ipad and save the image to your camera roll. Open Proloquo2Go and use the image as you want.
Here are side by side images of Boardmaker and Proloquo2Go.

If you do not know how to import images into your Proloquo2Go, check out their online tutorials.
If you have questions, feel free to ask. This is not difficult!
