Makaton Signs and Symbols
We have Communicate in Print installed throughout the school and we have just received six CDs containing updated Makaton symbols. All each CD does is copy the symbols/signs in to a folder on the local machine ie c:\wws2000\graphics . The WWS2000 is from Writing with Symbols which we also have installed.
The easiest way I have found to install it on all machines, is to get staff to run a bat file from a shared drive, the batch file does this:
It takes about 5 mins and copies 20,000 symbols across! I just wondered if anyone would have a better way of doing this? I suppose I could run it as a start up script, but it would take 5 minutes to run.
