Avaz (versions 4.0 and above) has 3 levels of vocabulary - Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 - as per the Pragmatic Vocabulary of Avaz. And you can set the vocabulary to any of the levels, depending on the child's strengths and needs.


Setting the Home Screen Vocabulary restricts the user to a specific, suitable vocabulary on the Home screen, preventing navigation and access to other vocabulary levels within the app which is unsuitable for the user at that point.

NOTE: 


  • When you move change the vocabulary level in Settings or move from one level to another (or change pictures per screen), any custom vocabulary created in the previous level does not reflect in the changed level. 
  • As you change the vocabulary level, the default categories (folders) remain the same with a few more added to the higher level; however the custom folders need to be copied in order to be accessible at the new level. 
  • Also, you may have to re-arrange the icons after moving it to the new level, in order to retain the same motor patterns that the user is already used to.
