“Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.“

This app transforms struggling writers and gives them confidence in their writing abilitySally Floyd
Spell Better has a ton of features to help dyslexic writers who are having difficulty writing. You can hear words and sentences as you type them or even before you pick them with audio support for typing and word prediction. Words are highlighted in the Text-to-Speech, and Spell Better offers a selection of fonts that are easy to see and accommodate low vision. The powerful spell checking and word prediction tools have been specially trained to recognize and fix the kinds of mistakes that kids with dyslexia and dysgraphia frequently make. Spell Better was created from the bottom up to identify and fix difficult orthographic mistakes. It observes the sentence's context while performing all of the aforementioned actions.
This app is an excellent teaching tool. It offers many different ways to create a visual map for any content. Users can choose their own text box shapes and pictures, change the font, size and color for text as well as change the color and line thickness of text boxes. There is a recording option that allows the user to add audio clips to text and pictures. Once a diagram is created, then it can be changed to an outline view where more information can be added. The Super Grouper box allows users to sort objects (pictures/text boxes) which is a great skill for early elementary students. There are even ready-made templates within the app for Reading/Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Math. There are so many great features that make this app a must have for all types of learners! The possibilities for creating and learning are endless!Jennifer H.
On the iPad, Kidspiration® Maps supports elementary school students in developing excellent reading, writing, and thinking skills. Utilize the app's integrated, vibrant, cross-curricular activities to encourage children producing and learning on the iPad. Alternately, students can start from scratch and use the more than 1,500 built-in symbol visuals to unleash their creativity on a blank sheet.
Typing isn't very responsive This works OK if using the word prediction but it seems to lag when typing out the words - very frustrating! I would like to see this improved so I can use it more with students at school! February 14, 2014 update. This new update definitely improves the speed and the lagging is not there anymore. Thank you! I have another request. I noticed the words are only spoken if chosen from the word bank. Can you make it so the words are also spoken when the individual types in the word rather than using the word bank?

This app for iPad has it all: spell check, word prediction, text-to-speech capabilities, and a dictionary. Generating written output is a snap with Spell Better, and sharing documents is easy, too. Even weak spellers with developing typing skills will benefit from this well-designed app.

Since they are able to devote more of their attention to the content, learners using this app are able to increase the length and depth of their writing.

Kidspiration Maps (as well as Inspiration Maps) is a highly versatile assistive technology app that follows the constructs of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). My students can use it to write a well-organized essay, organize information from a textbook chapter, and create interactive electronic study guides. The built-in images and the iPad’s touch screen and Speak Selection feature combine to make it a multisensory tool that benefits all students. User’s of Inspiration’s desktop software will find the apps familiar and easy to use; many of my students prefer to create their diagrams with the apps because they like to manipulate the objects on the touch screen. Kidspiration / Inspiration Maps are awesome learning tools!
