This app is designed by an Occupational Therapist to help children with physical or learning disabilities identify where keys are on the keyboard, then learn to type and spell. In this app , each word in a spelling list is presented, then each letter is shown onscreen. Once a match has been found on the keyboard a fun picture is shown and sound to match it, this will reinforce the letter. You can change the spelling list of words easily, so that the week’s word list can be practiced, or insert Dolch words at the touch of a button. The keyboard is shown with the key to be pressed highlighted, or you can select to hide all keys except the required key.
Keys can be colored to match the keyboard. Color the whole keyboard; color each line separately; color for left/right hands; or match the BigKeys(c) multi-color keyboard. Errors are ignored initially to make success easier.
This app is compatible with both the IPAD on-screen keyboard, and with standard or BigKeys© keyboards. Supports BigKeys multicolor keyboards, and alphabetic layout keyboards.
