Writing with Symbols, if I remember correctly, is a program that generates
symbols to represent words, e.g. House, Dog, Cat, etc. You type the word,
it provides you with a symbol. I'd be interested to know if there are
similar open source programs out there as it's something our learning
support teachers often use.
