  • Huge (1 picture)

For Avaz version 6.6 + 

Important: It is recommended to set the Grid size at the highest size that the user can see and access and to not keep changing the grid size over time, since that can affect the user's motor pattern while using the app. 

How to set the Pictures per screen or Grid size?

  1. Tap Menu on the top right corner of the home page. 
  2. Tap Settings
  3. Scroll down to find and tap Pictures per screen (Grid size) 
  4. Select the required grid size and the page gets set to the selected grid size. 

In version below 6.6.

Vocabulary optimization for grid sizes

Please note that specific vocabularies are optimized for specific grid sizes.

Avaz offers 3 optimized vocabulary levels for communication:

  1. Level 1 (optimized for 15 pics per screen)
  2. Level 2 (optimized for 24 pics per screen) and 
  3. Level 3 (optimized for 40 pics per screen). 

The above vocabulary levels are not applicable for Avaz India (Android), Avaz Australia and Avaz Dansk. Their vocabulary levels are Getting Started, Basic and Advanced. 

Note that for the above apps, by changing the Home Screen Vocab level, the number of pictures per screen are also automatically changed, and vice-versa.

It is recommended to keep this setting in sync with the vocabulary level for which it is optimized, since this ensures consistent motor patterns for the child as he progresses from one level to the next.
