** Text-to-Speech with Dual-Color Highlighting
Read text aloud with dual-color highlighting. Highlighting the sentence in one color and the word being read in another color helps with focus and reading comprehension. Highlighting colors can also be customized to suit your preferences. By having your writing read aloud, you can ensure that what you wrote is what you actually meant to write!
** Contextual Word Prediction
Use word prediction to complete a word being typed or suggest the next word. Suggestions are displayed on the left as a user is typing. Simply tap the word you wish to use. Word prediction uses context and the phonetic spell checker to help predict the best suggestions. Develops writing skills and helps construct sentences with ease!
** Phonetic Spell Checker
The phonetic spell checker allows you to identify and correct spelling mistakes including phonetic and flexible spelling errors (e.g. no vowels). The spell checker, which has been tuned for common dyslexic spelling errors, also uses co-location to look at the words around the error and make better suggestions.
** Sounds like and Confusable Word Checking
Words that sound the same as well as those that are easily confused are identified along with alternate choices and definitions to help you easily choose which word to use.
** Text and Picture Dictionary
Provides text definitions as well as images for selected words to help expand vocabulary and improve comprehension.
** Customizable Background and Text Colors
Customize the background and text colors based on your needs or preferences.

What's New in Version 1.1.1
Minor Bug fixes
prediction based on common errors is great!
This app is useful for my students who have difficulty sequencing letters properly to get the needed word predicted. I would like to see more options for formatting, like an automatic backspace before ending punctuation, commas and end quotes. Would like to see centering option for title and right alignment for student to put name and date on paper. I love the option for a larger font in predicted words.
