Copy Vocabulary Files using iTunes® to or from a PC

Download .pdf

It is always a good idea to keep a copy of all custom files on a 2nd computer for safe keeping. Here you will find instructions how to send a copy of a file to a PC and how to send it back to the computer. These instructions use iTunes® running on a PC to copy files back and forth. We suggest always using a wired connection to a PC to copy files consistently.

NOTE:  If using a Dedicated TouchChat Express, see article, "Connecting to a Computer for the First Time".
