How I Use It
This is a great app for English Language Learners and students with fine motor difficulties, since it converts spoken words to text. It is more accurate than I thought, and helps students learn how to speak clearly and in complete sentences. Students can even speak their punctuation so they can tell Dragon where to put a period, question mark, exclamation point, etc. Many students who struggle with writing, or have some speech-language support can use this app to practice speaking and see how what they just said is covered into text.
My Take
Teachers love this app because it's simple to use and is very accurate in its translations. Kids love seeing their spoken words converted into text, so it's a win-win in my book!
