WordQ4 - Hear What You Type

For ADHD students, helps them write and focus

Positive features about WordQ4

  • Interactive - students are not just trying to concentrate, but have instant verbal input from the program as it reads back what they have just typed
  • Perhaps better than Dragon, as it trains its voice recognition to understand your voice, with no reading required
  • Has a voice to text feature as well
  • Offers suggestions if it can't recognize a word the student is saying
  • Helps only as much as you need with functions that easily turn on or off

Possible Drawbacks to WordQ4

  • They say their text voice is "clear and pleasant" but I found it a bit robotic and droney
  • the WordQ4 version might not be suitable for schools as it has an "explicit language warning"
  • Cost is somewhat prohibitive at $199 or $149 (I may put something like this on my PAC request list for next year!)

Fyi, the Link feature on this Smore flyer will not work, and I wish it would!
