Vacancy: Two year contract/secondment with Highland’s Assistive Technology Support Service (ATSS) https://t.co/7GJJfofAYr
CALL Scotland has been awarded funding by The Scottish Government Gaelic and Scots Unit; Scottish Funding Council; Scottish Qualifications Authority and Bòrd na Gàidhlig to develop, along with CereProc, a digital voice in Gaelic.
This is fabulous news and means that Gaelic users will now be able to benefit from a quality voice to support writing and/or reading.
Cereproc is the Edinburgh-based digital voice company that brought us the now familiar, Stuart and Heather that are so widely used across Scottish schools.
Read Paul’s blogpost here for all the details.
This is excellent news and provides an answer to one important missing link.
From today, users of Office 2013 and Office 365 will have access to Gaelic language support.
CALL Scotland has produced a helpful and practical guide to the decision making process about how to support children with writing difficulties. Full details and rationale are on CALL Scotland’s Blog.
The poster is available in two formats: one is for printing while the second contains live links to further suggestions and resources.
CALL Scotland and ATSS worked on a Highland Version of these posters to take account of our procedures and individual pathways of support. You can obtain the Highland versions by clicking here for the print version or here for the version with links.
The team at CALL Scotland has updated and expanded their iCALL book to take in new developments under IOS 7.1
This (free) book is a must for any school looking to develop support for pupils using iPads. Loads of useful information and pointers to the ‘best so far’ apps as well as tips to avoid the pitfalls.

Our friends at CALL Scotland, Sally Millar and Gillian McNeill in particular, have produced another fantastically well-considered and well-designed app wheel: this time for apps that support the development of, or the full-blown use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
