This app is designed for use in therapy with adults with dysphasia and other effects of stroke or brain injury. It uses errorless learning principles to help rehabilitate use of the QWERTY keyboard layout.

Over 4000 high-frequency single English words and more than 600 short phrases are used as built-in prompts, or five custom phrases can be set. The user is instructed to type the target from a written prompt. If the wrong letter is pressed, audible and visual feedback is given, and the appropriate key is highlighted. This highlighting can also be configured to be displayed immediately for users that require more consistent cues. If errors continue, the feedback is made even clearer, and the user is unable to continue until the correct key is pressed. Clear auditory and visual feedback is also provided for correct input, until the word or phrase is completed.

-A simplified keyboard containing only letters, the space bar and (optionally) numbers.
-Choose the length and type of the target - short or long words and phrases, with or without numbers.
-Custom words and phrases - the user can practise typing their name, simple street addresses or any other string of words and numbers
-Choose whether the prompt remains on the screen or disappears after a configurable delay of 1 to 30 seconds.
-A scoreboard records the percentage of correct button presses and the total number of error-free words or phrases.
-Reinforcing, motivating feedback for correct words and phrases, with phased cues to guide the user to the correct key when the wrong key is pressed.
-Persistent settings that are saved between sessions.

What's New

Version 1.2.0

Important bugfixes and additions - please install:
-Words and phrases are still presented in random order, but will now not repeat in a session unless all other targets have been displayed
-Option to allow cueing for correct key as soon as target word is presented (ie the user does not need to hit the wrong key to trigger a cue).
-Manual review of word and phrase corpus to remove a small number of potentially objectionable words and non-typeable characters
-Corrected behaviour of scoreboard. Scoreboard was always accurate, but now correctly reflects whether single words or phrases are being entered.
