Make sure that PowerPoint is closed before installing the symboliser. Double click on the file that you downloaded to start the installation (it will be named something like “commtap-symboliser-for-powerpoint-v2 … “). The installation should start.

When you open PowerPoint, you should see some new buttons on the PowerPoint home tab – one group labelled “Commtap Symboliser” and another group labelled “Grid Maker”. If you do not see these buttons, see troubleshoot problems with installation.

If you don’t already have a large symbols set to use, the free ARASAAC symbol set is highly recommended. You can download a version of it from the Commtap resources website. This version is “enhanced” with a lot of extra words.
