Crick Software has a new iPad app, WriteOnline (28.99) providing writing support :
- Word Prediction
- Word Banks (topic and alphabetical)
- Text to Speech
- Talking Spell Checker
With features similar to their Clicker Docs app, WriteOnline app has a more mature look for middle school or older students using the iPad:
Like Crick’s other apps and software, access to the shared Learning Grid resources for WriteOnline app provides topic word banks already created for free. Workflow to Dropbox is available within WriteOnline app.
I haven’t had a chance to trial WriteOnline but it appears to be well worth exploring if needing word prediction and resources for a variety of topic word banks for your students. Support from developers such as Crick who have provided software for special needs for years is also a huge benefit.
