Write:OutLoud ® is an easy-to-use talking word processor that can be made to speak letters, words, sentences, or any combination of the three. Listening to words encourages reluctant writers and eliminates frustration. Write:OutLoud gives students the satisfaction and success that motivates them to write more and want to write. When used with Overlay Maker ® and IntelliKeys® (IntelliTools), Write:OutLoud becomes a powerful tool for communication. Writing skills improve further when used with Co-Writer, a word prediction program, for increased typing efficiency and vocabulary enhancement.
