• Word Q Speak Q

    Brief description

    • Word prediction, speech recognition & screen reader
    • The program predicts to aid spelling, gives examples of word useage, reads aloud text on the screen (what you’re typing or what you’re reading).
    • Can also use speech recognition to ‘type’ in words.
    • Can customise the dictionary to improve prediction
    • Screen reader, prediction & speech recognition works within all programs/web pages (e.g. can use within email, social networking sites & web searches)

    Who could benefit:

    • People who can spell the first 2-3 letters of a word before getting stuck
    • People who can spell words but sometimes find it easier to say a word
