How can I check the version number of my software?

Periodically, you will be able to update your software to take advantage of improvements and bug fixes. You can always check which version you have by using the following steps:

From the home page of the vocabulary file tap Vocab in the left corner
Tap on Choose New Vocab
The version is at the bottom of the screen

Why is my LAMP app running slower than usual?

There is a difference between minimizing an app and closing one. Tapping the iPad’s Home button makes an application disappear from the screen but it continues to run in the background. So if your LAMP app seems to be running slower than usual, it’s likely to be because you have lots of apps minimized. Use the procedure below to close them:

Tap on the Home button on the bottom of the device to exit the application
Double Tap on the Home button, which will bring up the “Taskbar” at the bottom
Press and hold the LAMP icon to make the “minus” button display on the icons
Press the Minus sign to close the application
Once the applications are closed, press the home button twice to return to the desktop

Why is my app no longer speaking?

If you are hearing no sound at all from your iPad, there are some simple checks you can make that will often fix the problem.

Check that you haven’t turned the volume down by using the volume controls on the right-hand side of the iPad.

Press the buttons to the volume level on your screen.

Check that your hardware Side Switch is NOT set for Mute. The Side Switch on the right-hand side can be set in an up or down position:

If it is set in a down position, the Side Switch is ON, and whatever you have set the side switch to do will take effect. So if you have set it for Mute, all sound will be turned off.

You can set your Side Switch to lock/unlock the orientation of the screen, or to set the sounds for the device to on/off.

Above, you can see that the Side Switch is set to be used for Lock Rotation. If you see the Mute checked off, either (a) change to Lock Rotation or (b) flip the Side Switch to the UP position.

Check the Settings in your LAMP app for Speak. Make sure they are not all set to OFF.

If they are all set to OFF, you won’t hear anything unless you touch the text area of the app.

How do I add a new voice to my LAMP Words For Life?

LAMP Words For Life™ comes with a single voice installed but you can download others.

Voice files are large and should be downloaded separately. Depending on the speed of your connection, each file will take time to download and will use memory on your iPad. We recommend you only download those voice(s) you really want to use so you don’t use up all the storage on your ipad.

Select the green Menu button.
Choose Settings from the drop-down menu.

From the Speech section, choose Voice.

From the list of voices that appears, choose the one you wish to download. Voices that have already been downloaded will be in bold text.

Select Yes to download the voice, or No to cancel.
When the download is complete, select Okay in the pop-up window.
You can now choose the newly installed voice in your Voice menu then select Done to exit the Settings.

I forgot my passcode. How can I reset it?

Press the home button and select the Settings app.
Find the Words For Life item under App settings.
There should be just one setting: Enable Menu Passcode ON/OFF.
Turn off the Enable Menu Passcode.
Press the home button and select Words For Life to return to the app.
Press a menu item and confirm that the menus are unlocked.

Can I text directly from the app?

Text messaging does work if the iPad is equipped with the 3G capabilities. Also, in iOS 5 Apple included iMessage support. This will allow messages to be sent to other Apple users even if the iPad is only Wi-Fi capable and automatic. The title of the service will come up as "SMS Message" in WFL if any messaging type is available.

How do I get access to LAM (Language Activity Monitoring) information?

Turning Data Logging ON or OFF
Select the green Menu button.
