These templates are designed to help you make common pictographic resources for facilitating conversations with people experiencing communication barriers. They feature areas for large pictographs and large san serif fonts. With these templates, you will be able to easily insert downloaded pictographs and add your own keywords. We recommend using the larger version of the pictographs for these templates.

The templates are in PDF file format. To use them, you will need the free program, Adobe Reader, to open and edit the templates. You will not be able to do so in your web browser (i.e. Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer). Please open the template with Adobe Reader from the location where you saved it (commonly your computer's "Downloads" folder, depending on your web browser’s settings). You may also be asked to install Adobe Flash Player.

If you are unsure where your internet browser saves files, you can right-click on Download and select “Save link as” to assign where you would like the template to be saved. Then go the location on your computer where the template is saved to open it in Adobe Reader.
