Proofing and reviewing work
Actively reviewing and self-correcting your own work is such an important part of writing, but getting students into the habit of doing this can be a real challenge!
Realistic speech feedback
Each time a sentence is completed in DocsPlus, it is automatically read aloud in a clear, human-sounding voice, with each word highlighted as it's spoken. This encourages students to punctuate their work, and ensures that they review each sentence before starting the next one. Those needing more support can have each word or even each letter read aloud as it is entered, providing instant feedback. You can even customise the pronunciation of unusual words via the DocsPlus Word Pool - particularly useful for student's names or specialist curriculum vocabulary.
In addition, DocsPlus' Predictor, spell checker and Wordbars are also fully speech-supported, enabling students to check that they are selecting the right words before using them in their writing.
