This app takes “Type-A-Word-Lite' a step further by giving you the option to color the keys on the keyboard display (including a different color for each line, and BigKeys multicolored keys). Data collection is included, showing how long it takes to press each key, and how many incorrect key presses were done. Settings also include turning on or off the beep for incorrect keypresses, and setting the time between letters. You create the word to be spelled/typed. Once 'Go' is pressed, each letter of the word is presented in turn. The student must find the key on the keyboard. When the correct key is pressed a fun picture is shown and sound for that letter is played (for example “A for alligator”). Uppercase or lowercase letters can be selected for display. Either an external keyboard or the IPAD's onscreen keyboard may be used. Touch the letter to hear its sound, touch the picture to hear the description repeated. With clear, uncluttered screens to accommodate for low-vision, this app can be used to familiarize the student with the keyboard before moving up to 'Miss Sue’s Keyboard Fun'.

Ratings and Reviews
If I could report this App to the BBB I would. This app defrauded tax-payers, our school and especially a child with autism who needs to learn to type. The program did not deliver on what it had advertised. You only get the word "Go" and "Octopus" and then it repeats and there is something screwed up with screen viewing. The screen gets cut off. Very lame app. And it is disappointing that this App is recommended by Autism Speaks. Please DO NOT Purchase this app like we did -- wish we could get a refund.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
