Writer Learning

I absolutely love the "Writer" from Writer Learning. This is a durable, portable, long battery life keyboard with many enticing features. The Writer has so many features. I use the Writer to work on the basic typing skills using the typing program. The Writer has 16 folders for students and within each folder you can save numerous files. My students type stories, spelling lists, and notes using the Writer. When they are finished with their document the file can be beamed to the computer or printer for further editing or printing. One of my favorite features is called Word Prediction. Kids that have difficulty with motor skills to type out every word are able to use word prediction to help them type faster. Once they begin to type a word the Writers best guesses comes up with options. If the word the child was typing appears they simple press the corresponding number and move onto the next word. There are many more features so check out the website. The Writer is currently $149. The company also produces a device called the "Fusion" this device has voice output (text to speech) so somebody could hear what is being typed.
