Co:Writer UK Version
One simply intelligent word prediction window that sits on top of any application - that's all you see!
Co:Writer enables your students with significant grammar and spelling barriers to write fluently. As students write, Co:Writer interprets spelling mistakes that stump the most sophisticated spell-checkers. It offers words with correct grammar and spelling in real-time, training students “in the moment.” Topic Dictionaries give quick access to curriculum vocabulary in all key subject areas.
“Without Co:Writer and Write:OutLoud my students’ work is simplistic and limited due to the words they know they can spell or use. With these programs, their writing comes alive with the new vocabulary and a liberated sense of self expression.” Annie, Assistive Technology Specialist, Santa Fe, NM, USA
“This creative writing tool dramatically changed Frank’s learning outlook in school and carved out a larger opportunity for him to feel more confident about his writing abilities.” Sharon Dees, Lead Speech Pathologist
