Write:OutLoud to Go

Portable Talking Word Processor Fosters Writing Independence

Speech Output Added to Portable Notetaker
A new product for the Dana (AlphaSmart) that will help students with writing difficulties has just been made available. Write Out:Loud To Go adds a text-to-speech feature to this popular portable notetaker. With the installation of a small voice card in the back of the Dana, the device is able to read aloud anything a user types. This kind of auditory suport helps students recognize their mistakes and revise their written work. In addition, the talking Franklin Spell Checker provides support for poor spellers.
