How to make your own Speakbook – or get one made.

As soon as speakbook is commercially available we will have a link here. At the moment you have to make your own.

Download the PDF and take it to your local copyshop to be printed, laminated and wire bound – or print it at home and laminate it yourself. Don’t have a laminator? Just print it on paper or card and use a pencil to fill it in.

Download the ‘printing instructions’ for in depth advice on how to make one, or get one printed.

Many people have asked for a symbol version for non readers. If anybody designs one, tell us and we will make it available for download.

What’s new in the 4th edition?

The 4th edition is an all new version suitable for everybody – including the colour blind. We’ve lost the coloured strips in favour of a symbol based system. In case you prefer the classic version shown in the video, that’s available for download too.
