“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

“What I love about Easy Spelling Aid is that it easily complements our homeschooling curriculum, and allows my children to self-check their work…This is a kid-friendly and classroom-friendly app that every teacher and homeschooling parent needs to be aware of. The first time my kids used the app, they couldn’t have been more delighted. As soon as my son got his first result he said, “That’s SO cool. I want to do it again!” Spelling made FUN! 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
“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.”
