PictureWriter lets a a child write with pictures. There is a row of small category buttons. Touch one of them and the you hear the name of the category and see it printed on the bottom half of the screen. Another row of bigger pictures appears. These are the picture words. If you touch a picture word and push it forward, the word appears in the text area. If you touch and release a popup window appears that shows the word, and variations of it (in most cases), and a Spanish translation. Pressing a word button on the popup adds the word to the text area.
There are also buttons along the side of the text area to add punctuation, and to backspace or to move forward and back without deleting. If you need something from the regular keyboard, touching inside the text area will cause it to appear.
The word pronunciation can be turned on or off. The text can be saved, loaded or emailed.
PictureWriter has 96 picture words and 229 words total including the variations in nine categories.
PictureWriter can provide writing to support to beginning writers. It helps them to connect spoken with printed words. It will also be useful to a child whose first language is other than English, expecially Spanish speakers who had begun to in Spanish.
PictureWriter can also be used as a text editor by anyone, as the keyboard will appear if you touch inside the text area. It includes convenient arrow keys that allow you to move forward and back in your text without deleting.
