Accessible for all
To make access easier for those with physical challenges, the unique SuperKeys option makes words easy to target. Tap anywhere within a word cluster to enlarge it, and then tap the word you want. The keyboard works in the same way, with the keys grouped into just six large clusters that fill the keyboard area when expanded.
SuperKeys can also be set up to work with Switch Access on the iPad. To find out how to do this, download our PDF guide.
Access Clicker anytime, anywhere
Sometimes an iPad is the best technology to use for a particular learning task, whereas other times a laptop or PC is the most suitable option – investing in both Clicker 7 and Clicker Connect enables you to provide a consistent level of literacy support across your school's devices. We have also ensured that Clicker Connect and Clicker 7 are fully file compatible. This gives you the flexibility to create Connect Sets on a computer using Clicker 7 and use them on your iPads, and to open your pupils' Clicker Connect work in Clicker 7.
