Install Imagetalk legacy software

Note that this guide applies only to Imagetalk software prior to the current Imagetalk Book Editor/Symbol Writer generation.

As a registered assistant you can install Imagetalk programs over the Internet, in order to create own icons, use the Imagetalk icon libraries, edit communication books and view them in the end user programs.

Imagetalk Assistant and Imagetalk Reference software runs on Java, and takes advantage of Java WebStart for managing and updating the software. Therefore, start by installing Java WebStart. Select Get it now! from the Java install page. The installation routine checks your operating system and eventual previous Java versions and, if necessary, installs the Java Runtime Environment and Java WebStart.

After installing Java you can proceed with Imagetalk Assistant, the toolset with which you can create icon libraries, books and message partners to yourself and your actual users. When you log in with your registered username and password, you may take advantage of the services found on Imagetalk Server, such as sharing icon books and libraries with your fellow assistants and backing up your Imagetalk data on the server.

When you have created and updated a book for yourself or for a registered user (with Imagetalk Assistant > Books tab > Update), you can view the book in Imagetalk Reference program.

Note that Imagetalk Assistant and Reference programs are automatically updated if you have an Internet-connection and use Java WebStart.
