EASY DYSLEXIA AID SCORES 5 STARS IN THE EAS CERTIFICATION

Easy Dyslexia Aid is a wonderful application and a welcome addition to the assistive technology market for dyslexia.

“Probably the best function of Easy Dyslexia Aid, is its ability to do what it is meant to do straight away. The absence of unnecessary ‘options’ pages ensures that learners with specific difficulties can quickly start using the app. Dyslexia is primarily associated with trouble reading. But it can also affect writing, spelling and even speaking. Dysgraphia mostly shows up as writing difficulties. Kids with dysgraphia may struggle with handwriting, organising their thoughts on paper or with both of these activities. Easy Dyslexia Aid can support with both these conditions and serves as an extremely useful companion both inside and outside the classroom.

Upon opening the application you are presented with a clear blue user-friendly interface. The instruction ‘Touch mic & talk’ is displayed above a circular mic symbol that is inviting to touch. On touching the symbol, you are asked to ‘Talk.’ By pressing done the app will process what has been said and proceed to produce your input. The word or short phrase you have spoken is displayed in the developer’s own ‘Open Dyslexia Font’. This font has been created with letters using heavy weighted bottoms to indicate direction and to reinforce the line of text, which aids in recognising the correct letter, and sometimes helps to keep the brain from rotating them around. The Open Dyslexic Font is displayed in a choice of 8 background colour combinations, as a means to accommodate users suffering from Dyslexia and improve readability. This feature can be changed in the settings which are also easily navigated to from the main screen. Additionally, within the settings, you can choose to turn off speech output is you wish, display upper and lower case letters and change between 18 different languages.

The voice synthesis technology used is of a high standard; audio output is clear and the voice recognition software is second to none when compared with many applications of a similar nature.

For many children with dyslexia or dysgraphia, asking for help with spelling can be a frustrating experience, especially in the classroom. This app can help to increase independence in the classroom and allow for uninterrupted thinking. Easy Dyslexia Aid is a simple and intuitive app, which is exactly what it needs to be. This app is a must for all classrooms that have children with dyslexia or dysgraphia.” Educational App Store EAS Star Rating: 5

Easy Spelling Aid Children’s Education App

“We are suitably impressed with this application because Easy Spelling Aid is actually much more than a spelling and reading helper – as if that was not already enough! It is a very special go-to literacy and learning tool that defeats dyslexia and dysgraphia through the use of colour backgrounds and special fonts. Also, beyond giving kids instant help to spell problematic words, it is a friend to children at the primary level from all backgrounds because it boasts superior, accurate and incredibly fine-tuned speech recognition in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, German, French, Turkish, Italian, Japanese and more.

Through this educational compelling app, young students everywhere are starting to enjoy the benefits of self-directed learning by not having to wait for help from parents or teachers, which is a big plus. It even helps kids learn about homophones and to better understand word usage by giving them exercises in comprehension and vocabulary, even going so far as to use context to determine the correct spelling of a word; for example, “they’re playing over there, in front of their house” or “two friends had too much to eat” Extraordinary stuff!

What makes Easy Spelling Aid unique is that it breaks away from simply teaching a list of spelling words. Instead, it acts as a tool when a child is faced with a word they do not know how to spell. Improving literacy performance and working to help children learn to spell is a significant part of the app’s design, value and purpose – which sets it apart from anything we have seen. As a real mind boggler, we tested the app to its limits, by speaking the word “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ into the app with an east coast Canadian accent and believe it or not, it replied instantly, spelling the word correctly.

Overall, we found the app really easy to use. Simply press the microphone button, speak the word or phrase and receive the correct spelling, displayed in one of the Australian, New Zealand, US or UK primary school writing styles. We believe without hesitation that Easy Spelling Aid is a real game changer and well worth downloading straight away.”

Easy Spelling Aid App Review
by Christopher Jarman

Children today look for help almost instinctively to their iPads, tablets or smart phones. This new Easy Spelling App from Australian developer, Nuapp Productions, is designed for both the iPhone and iPad, and is simple to use, while being extremely sophisticated in what it offers.

Pupils merely touch a large picture of a microphone and say the word or short phrase he or she needs to spell. They then press the word ‘Done’ and the word comes on the screen correctly spelt in the hand writing style of their, or their teacher’s choice in both capital letters and lower case. The style can be set in advance and will stay that way until changed.

The handwriting choices are, Two UK styles are Jarman and UK Cursive, and two Australian styles, Victoria modern cursive, and New South Wales foundation manuscript. Then USA D’nealian manuscript. The international appeal of this app is exceptional as it supports 19 languages, including UK, American and Australian accents. My friends and family who are multilingual have tested French, German, Russian, Dutch, Italian and Japanese, and found that the speech recognition and the written spelt results are amazingly accurate. All this for the download price of £2.29 UK!

This is an unusual piece of software that really does what it claims. Even the most Luddite IT-hating teacher would have to admit the usefulness of this little teaching aid. Once downloaded, no further purchases are required. Updates will arrive automatically.

The app has been designed mainly for children between the ages of 6 to 12, but anyone of any age who feels shaky about their spelling would love this. The GB App Store web page is: GB App Store

Does it get any better?”

“What we love…Quick and easy way to find a word spelling, supports a variety of languages including regional English options, has a choice of fonts, dyslexia- friendly options and the ability to hear the text spoken back…I would recommend this as a great tool for children from 2nd grade up to help them quickly and easily find how a word is spelled.”

Our Rating 4.5 Stars

AppyMail

“This app could be useful for students in mainstream classes, to assist them with spelling words if a teacher is working with another student: it could help to minimise delays in reaching students whose needs are purely to spell an unknown word. This app could assist the students to become independent writers…This app could also be useful in the home for primary school children who need spelling assistance with homework, but parents are busy with household chores and not necessarily available to help. Children at home could easily become independent writers through the use of this app.”

Our Rating 4.5 Stars
