Discover the first educational app that fully exploits natural sounding text-to-speech voices to help kids learn word building and spelling. Kids can now build any word or sentence using a Movable Alphabet and immediately hear the text they wrote, as well as verify spelling using the built-in spell checker. This innovative app has the ability to turn whatever words kids create – even words that doesn’t exist – into spoken words.
“I love the talking alphabet. The verbal feedback helps children decide if the letter they chose is indeed the letter intended. The voice reads whatever words the child creates, which give another opportunity for children to self-correct if the word does not sound like the word the child wrote. The app supports letter recognition, phonological awareness, spelling and self-correction without sacrificing fun. I will certainly recommend it to early educators.”
