SuperKeys is our innovative on-screen keyboard for people with mild to moderate physical challenges and those with low vision. The app version for the iPad has been incredibly well received by the special needs community, so we decided to make this a built-in feature for Clicker 7!
The unique design of SuperKeys gives you just seven large keys to target instead of more than 30 small ones! Just tap the cluster containing the letter you want, and then tap the letter in the enlarged cluster to send it into your document.
As you make you selections, Clicker’s word predictor will generate a list of likely words that begin with those letters, or words that would make sense to come after those you have already typed, helping to minimise key presses. If you select the ‘Qwerty top prediction’ keyboard option, the suggestions will be displayed on large buttons to make selection really easy, and up to five suggestions are shown.
SuperKeys will also enlarge the content of Sentence Sets, Connect Sets, and Word Banks, enabling every child to benefit from the support of Clicker grids as they work.
Try combining SuperKeys with switch or eye gaze control to make Clicker even more accessible for your learners – it also makes Clicker much easier to use on a touch screen for those who struggle with fine motor control.
