Teacher Review

Easy Dyslexia aid is a wonderful application and a welcome addition to the assistive technology market for dyslexia. Probably the best function of Easy Dyslexia aid, is its ability to do what it is meant to do straight away. The absence of unnecessary 'options' pages ensures that learners with specific difficulties can quickly start using the app. Dyslexia is primarily associated with trouble reading. But it can also affect writing, spelling and even speaking. Dysgraphia mostly shows up as writing difficulties. Kids with dysgraphia may struggle with handwriting, organizing their thoughts on paper or with both of these activities. Easy Dyslexia aid can support with both these conditions and serves as an extremely useful companion both inside and outside the classroom.  
 
Upon opening the application you are presented with a clear blue user-friendly interface. The instruction 'Touch mic & talk’ is displayed above a circular mic symbol that is inviting to touch. On touching the symbol, you are asked to 'Talk.' By pressing done the app will process what has been said and proceed to produce your input. The word or short phrase you have spoken is displayed in the developer's own 'Open Dyslexia Font'. This font has been created with letters using heavy weighted bottoms to indicate direction and to reinforce the line of text, which aids in recognising the correct letter, and sometimes helps to keep the brain from rotating them around. The Open Dyslexic Font is displayed in a choice of 8 background colour combinations, as a means to accommodate users suffering from Dyslexia and improve readability. This feature can be changed in the settings which are also easily navigated to from the main screen. Additionally, within the settings, you can choose to turn off speech output is you wish, display upper and lower case letters and change between 18 different languages. 
 
The voice synthesis technology used is of a high standard; audio output is clear and the voice recognition software is second to none when compared with many applications of a similar nature.
 
For many children with dyslexia or dysgraphia, asking for help with spelling can be a frustrating experience, especially in the classroom. This app can help to increase independence in the classroom and allow for uninterrupted thinking.  Easy Dyslexia aid is a simple and intuitive app, which is exactly what it needs to be. This app is a must for all classrooms that have children with dyslexia or dysgraphia.

Testimonial

"I have purchased your app and my 11yo daughter who has Dyslexia has told me how beneficial she is finding it. I have recommended it to several colleagues who are excited to use it with students having difficulties with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia. I have also recommended it to my daughter’s classroom teacher as a means of assisting my daughter (and others) who struggle with writing and spelling. Thank you for your brilliant product. It is a game changer.”
