When you have downloaded a word list, it becomes the currently-selected profile, for use in all of the activities. To switch between profiles, (those you have downloaded and any you already had), go back to Word List. Then on iPad or iPhone use Action > Manage Profiles (on iPad or iPhone), or on Android use Menu > Profiles.
Each list comprises text in British English with matching images, but without sound. You can record your own or your child's voice for each word using the app, and if you want to use in a different language, you can easily edit the text too.
If you transfer any of these lists to Special Stories, each will comprise a story with one word from the list on each page. To further develop learning, you can then extend this to short phrases or whole sentences with your child. You can then transfer your stories as topics into Special Sentences. You can also transfer any list from Special Words to Special Spelling to learn to spell each new word.
An alternative to adding your own sound is to use your device's text to speech (TTS) facility to hear a simulated voice. Our Sentences and Spelling apps have this option enabled by default, but in Words or Stories you need to have the very latest version of the app and to enable Text to Speech in the app's settings.
