What is GoQ?
Design for Academic Use
For students who are unable to write GoQ has a voice to text feature that allows the student to speak the text they want written down.
GoQ also offers larger documents and text to be read to the students. Students highlight the text they want read to them and the software will read it for them.
This software also aids the teachers because they won't have to read and spell for the students all of the time. In my personal experience I feel that this can be too time consuming and ineffective during lessons. Too much time is spent doing this for the students individually. An assistive technology that can take that away will aid educators greatly.
GoQ offers many accommodations to the learner to achieve learning goals. The learner is able to have text read to them. It also provides a text to speech feature and vice versa. Text is able to be proofread. It is also available in English, Spanish and French. GoQ accommodates all of those needs for the learner.
Additional accommodations offered by the teacher could be:
- Step by Step written directions on how to use the software.
- Video clips on how to use the software.
- Sample lessons.
