Have you begun to customize your Word Library, and if so, how?

I suppose many of you must have at least customized Mommy and Daddy by now?

Yep!  Added pics for mommy, daddy, and "baby's name" just a bit ago...it was really easy and it worked during playback too! I tried to add a file for his sister, Annabelle to the family word list.  It looked like I was successful when I was in the word library, but it didn't show up during the playback mode.  Not sure what I did, so I'll be looking into this.  By the way, I also added more than one pic for some of the files (mommy, baby, etc) b/c it was so easy and this was great too.  My older child (Annabelle) had fun clicking her way through the playback when I was finished.  I wonder if there is a setting so that the word file (ex. "mommy") would reappear between each of the pictures presented.  I still have much to explore - so forgive me if that is already an option and I missed it!
Please let me know what step I missed when trying to add a word (sister/Annabelle) to the word list - then I will try to add others as well - "Gramma", aunts, and cousins.  Thanks!!

OK, there are 2 issues there:

1. Disappearing word issue

It sounds like this problem:
http://forum.brillkids.com/little-reader/added-a-new-word-but-it's-not-there-when-you-play-back/
Please let us know if that solves the problem.

2. Multiple pics with multiple word displays

It seems like what you are saying is that you have included multiple pictures of, say, your own 'Mommy' picture, and you have set the playback so that the "Number of Displays" is set to more than 1.  So the playback goes: Mommy [word] / Mommy [picture] / Mommy [picture] / Mommy [picture].  And now you would like Mommy [word] to appear before each of the three Mommy pictures? Is that right?

If so, then yes, Little Reader can do that for you.  That's why Playlists exists! What you should do is to attach multiple Mommy's in your playlist, and set the playback setting to display 1 picture (instead of three).  So your playlist would look like:

Mommy
Mommy
Mommy
Annabelle
Annabelle
Annabelle

etc.

Both the above questions involve the understanding of the differences between Playlists and Categories, so if you haven't already read it, I would encourage you to read this:
http://forum.brillkids.com/little-reader/upload-file/

Hope that helps!

Yep - that was what I was doing - figured it out with the post above. I have to admit that the difference between category and playlist wasn't clear (although it was not due to a lack of effort!!) to me until I actually experienced the above snafu for myself.

Got it - hadn't yet thought of the playlist in this light, but now it makes perfect sense!  Thanks for your patience getting all of us newborns up to speed on the really cool functions of Little Reader!!


sorry - I tried to get fancy and pull quotes from your clarification post, KL, but obviously I didn't do it correctly - my reply looks pretty garbled! Sorry 'about that.

I'm Gabriel's mommy!

Today I finally got around to customizing the family category. I put pictures of mommy, Gabriel and daddy, as well as our cat and dog. I also added a grandparents category. He has a lot of grandparents and great-grandparents, even a great great grandma! My dad, his parents and step-mom live far away and we recently went to see them for the first time. Since we'll probably only see them once a year or so, I want him to be familiar with their faces and names, so this is a wonderful way to familiarize him with them on a daily basis! Hopefully by the next time we see them, Gabriel will know exactly who they are!  big grin

I still have to add pronunciation to all of the personalized files---I have to wait until it's quiet! But I already did it for the categories I uploaded earlier so I know it's easy!

Very cool nhockaday - that is a neat idea - Gabriel will likely go right to those distant relatives which will of course delight them!

Thank you KL for fixing my quote attempt in my earlier post - I think I've got it now?!  smile
