To view the Boardmaker files on a different computer or share them with coworkers and clients, convert them to the PDF format by installing a third-party virtual. Boardmaker, developed by Mayer-Johnson, is a special needs application based on things you can print off such as communication boards. I had no reason to want to save a Boardmaker file as a pdf until I found that I can use 'voice over' on the iPad to read text outloud, i.e. it will read pdf files loaded.

This will reduce the number of final board examination days. Books have been colleagues of youth for a long time. They have served humankind from times obscure. Books have opened a vista to the wide entryway of learning, instruction, investigation and information. We not just gain from a book, book additionally improves our capacity of creative energy. NCERT books are the books that score an unmistakable full stamp with regards to satisfying the previously mentioned criteria.

They are unmistakably the best educative books you can lay your hands on. It resembles as though you are educated by an individual coach. The writings are informed with ends; this encourages the understudy to look upon the primary features without experiencing the whole content. These books are all around educated and impartial.

Particularly for history and topography. A tour of Muse Thus we set out to build Muse, a studio for ideas inspired by physical workspaces. We have not achieved all the ideals set out in the previous section, but we did hit many of them.

Ingesting media A space for creativity requires raw material. This material is the fodder for our minds to generate new ideas. Thus our studio for ideas must make ingestion of different media types easy and painless.

One ingestion route we focused on was users doing research on a web browser on their desktop computer. The Muse web clipper is a Chrome extension that can capture fragments of text, images, whole web pages, or PDFs.

Clip images and text Using the web clipper to add an image and then a text snippet to Muse.

We designed the clipper so that users have zero choices when clipping. There are no questions about what format to clip, where to save the content etc. We do think such a web extension would be one piece of the solution for a production-grade thinking tool. Visuospatial boards The heart of the studio ideas is reading, sifting, sorting, and making sense of the raw material the user has ingested.

We chose a spatial layout for Muse: mixed-media cards organized with a boards metaphor. Example board A Muse board with various cards, including nested boards. There are some precedents for this type of interface. Milanote , for example, uses a cards-on-boards model. Users can easily move, resize, create, delete, and copy cards in Muse.

Move cards A low-angle grip on the stylus drags cards. More on grips in Stylus tool selection below. This is a good example of where a stylus-required model gives greater flexibility in interaction design. Resize cards Cards resize when dragged from the corner. Images have fixed aspect ratios and the resize operation respects this.

Our benchmark for ease is turning to a new page in a paper notebook.

With that, no idea will be squashed by the hassle of getting started. In Muse we achieve this instant-start by dragging from the edge of the screen to create a new nested board. Create card Pulling in new a blank board—as a card nested in the current board—from the edge of the screen. Users can create and place the card with the same hand movement.

Copying cards uses a related gesture, placing one finger on the card to be copied and pulling the copy out with the stylus. Copy card The new copy fades in as the gesture proceeds. It fades back out if the operation is canceled by lifting the stylus early.

Jim in a nutshell...

Deletion is the inverse of creating—drag a card off the screen. Delete card Flick cards to the edge to remove them. A subtle benefit of this design is that you can undo a creation in mid-flight; just drag the card off the edge. Create then discard The user starts to create a new board, then changes their mind and flicks it away.

The gestures can even be used to play around with your content, e. This may seem trivial, but it helps make the app feel more personal and less fragile to users, which we think encourages relaxed, creative thinking: Copy then discard A user casually creates and discards ephemeral copies of a card. There are a few downsides to this gesture set. The copy gesture has some ambiguity between copy-by-value vs.

The deletion gesture makes hard deletes too easy to do. Pinch to zoom The app responds quickly to any pinches by initiating a zoom in the appropriate direction.

When a gesture is finished the view smoothly transitions to the nearest stable zoom level.

Software trials

Any time a user initiates, adjusts, or releases a zooming pinch, the interface responds instantly. Relatedly, there are no discrete navigation jumps.

As a consequence you can always initiate a partial movement and then gradually roll it forward and backwards until you reach some stable level. It also means you never lose your orientation, as every successive screen flows smoothly from the last and you can always pinch in to get back.

One question we faced with a zooming interface was how to represent boards within boards. To solve this we use a slight haze over distant boards, so that they appear darker the further away they are. This provides the necessary visual distinction between outer and inner boards without obscuring the content of the inner boards. It can also be incrementally animated as the zoom is in progress.


Nesting haze Zooming in and out on a nested board shows how a slight haze denotes nested boards, fading away as the board approaches the top zoom level.

This reflects how documents work in the real world; to read a piece of paper you just look at it. This is an example of the interface taking advantage of the user using two hands—one for touch and one for the stylus—at the same time.

Pick up and transport Once a move operation has started, the card stays with the user as they navigate. Moves can therefore carry cards across boards as well as within them. Zooming interfaces are not new. The first one was built by Ivan Sutherland in Zooming is familiar today in maps apps like Google Maps.

Indeed we deliberately borrow the pinch and double-tap gestures from these apps.

Users quickly learned the interface and reported it made intuitive sense. Shelf In physical and paper workspaces, artisans use a variety of techniques for keeping current work close at hand: desktop spaces a metaphor used in most workstation platforms but absent in touch platforms , drawers that slide out, post-its or other items taped or pinned nearby, inboxes.

In Muse, we try to replicate this concept of an informal scratch space with something we call the shelf. The shelf can be summoned and dismissed with a swipe, and it moves with you as you zoom around the space. Summoning the shelf A user summons the shelf, which moves with them as they navigate. By dragging the shelf its position is adjusted. The shelf can also be flicked to move it, via momentum, more than the distance traveled by the contacting finger.

One use of the shelf is receiving cards from the web clipper described above. Once an item lands on the shelf, you can move it to its desired location on your board. From shelf to board After these cards land on the shelf from the web clipper, the user moves them to their spots on the current board. The shelf also acts as a copy-paste buffer. It differs from a traditional copy-paste buffer in that a the contents are visible to the user, b it can hold multiple items, and c the user can choose to use a subset of the items in the buffer.

The shelf can be adjusted at the same time as a card is being moved. This allows you to e. It is not as good as Adobe Acrobat, but it is free.

Muse: designing a studio for ideas

Or is there some hidden way to do it? With Studio are we limited to using the PCS exactly as they are - no changes allowed? Carla Tobergte March 14, I had no reason to want to save a Boardmaker file as a pdf until I found that I can use 'voice over' on the iPad to read text outloud, i.

I found this out through looking at the Slater Software- Picture It. Then, the attachment is opened and saved in iBooks. With 'voice over' turned on, the text will be read.

I understand copyright issues but wonder if Boardmaker will keep pace with accessibility on the iPad to allow files for such things as social stories that are made in Boardmaker to be put on the iPad.

I'm not sure what the difference would be, if I already own Boardmaker and print out activities or social stories or whatever, why would it not be acceptable to access the material on the iPad? I would think you would still have to own Boardmaker to save files as a pdf.

I understand you shouldn't be able to go on Boardmaker Share and save anything from there. Just curious since it somehow isn't infringing on the copyright for Picture It files to be saved as a pdf. I see Dan didn't have a response to you Carla. Maybe because you can do what you want with it as long as it doens't leave your hands Official Rep November 14, There is indeed not a way to do this in Boardmaker.

However, there is software available that allows you to add an option within your Windows printers list that will save the board as a. It's commonly referred to as "print to pdf".

Your best bet is to Google "Print to pdf" to see what software is available free or paid. Since this is 3rd party software, this is not something that we would support, though.

Jane F April 25, Why can't we print to a pdf legally?

We are allowed to put our own pictures into boardmaker templates, but can't use it after that?The Muse web clipper is a Chrome extension that can capture fragments of text, images, whole web pages, or PDFs. Copying cards uses a related gesture, placing one finger on the card to be copied and pulling the copy out with the stylus.
