Chat Editor is the Chat software that is able to be run on a Windows Desktop or Laptop computer. Although it can be done on the device, this provides family and/or professionals a way to customize vocabulary for the device user when it is convenient.
Note: Having the custom vocabulary on a second computer is always recommended as a backup to the Chat device.
