Point – Symbolic Word Representations 

Point is controlled using the on/off button.

To use Point, first turn the service on, then hover your mouse pointer over a word onscreen. A Widgit Symbol or Symbols will appear to help you to understand the meaning of the chosen word.

Point is created by Widgit, the creators of the Widgit Symbol Set, a collection of symbols supporting over 40,000 words. Each carefully and simply drawn symbol provides a visual representation of the word it is linked to, giving access to non or emerging readers. More information can be found at www.widgit.com
