PRC Pictures (3,385 of them) Wow!
By Samuel Sennott
Did you know that you can freely download the Prentke Romich Company’s Picture set? Wow! That is a powerful tool to use and a powerful tool to share with parents and teachers.
Here is the info and links from the Prentke Romich Downloads section of their website. http://www.prentrom.com/downloads
- Download the current PRC icons. These icons are the same for all PRC devices. They are available in BMP, GIF, and JPEG format and contained within a single ZIP file. If you need an icon for a device or for use in a PC, then use the bitmap (bmp) file. MAC users will need to use the gif or jpeg files. The files include a page of instructions for using the PRC icons.
- Hits: 347
-These icons are used in their terrific line up of Augmentative and Alternative Communication Devices that include:
Springboard Lite, Vantage, Vanguard, Pathfinder, Eco-14
You can import all 3,385 pictures into your iPhoto library. Give them a keyword tag of PRC and then make an album. Now in MS Word 2008, they can be used easily by just linking to the iPhoto folder. Plus that way the set can be searched by title for the desired icon. When you download the zipped file you get the BMP, GIF, and JPEG formatted icons organized mostly by letters A to Z. Once they are in one folder in iPhoto, dumping them back into one folder on your desktop or a flash drive may be helpful to have them in one searchable folder for varying applications/ operating systems that do not connect as easily to iPhoto as MS Word 2008 for Mac does. That being said, two posts I have created previously relate to this resource:
- Microsoft Word and Slater Software’s Free Online Symbol Resource-Video Podcast
- Keywords in iPhoto ‘08 for Organizing Video
