Picture Master Language Software (PMLS) is a symbolic language picture creation program designed for use by individuals with communication or speech disabilities. This software can be used to create communication overlays on a computer or to program a portable Bluebird II communication device (see separate entry). The software has over 3,000 symbols, including black-and-white simple line drawings, color simple line drawings, black-and-white realistic drawings, color realistic drawings, photos, and animated .gif files. To create a communication board, the user chooses a grid and then places symbols onto the grid. Each symbol includes a label and recording in both English and Spanish. Users can choose the language of both the recording and the label, and pre-defined pictures can be replaced with personalized images.
