Help struggling writers overcome barriers to progress with DocsPlus – the brand new writing tool for secondary schools. Join the many schools around the world using Crick Software’s products to develop students’ writing skills and confidence.
FOR STUDENTS AGED 11-ADULT
DocsPlus is a specially designed word processor with an adult look and feel, yet providing extensive writing support through high quality speech, powerful word prediction and our acclaimed Wordbars.
REVIEW WRITING WITH CLEAR SPEECH
As students write, their work is read back to them as each sentence is completed. Research shows that this active engagement with text encourages students to find and correct errors for themselves.
DEVELOP VOCABULARY AND SPELLING WITH WORD PREDICTION
The intelligent predictor suggests words that fit the context of students’ writing. It’s easily customized to the right reading level, helping students to use good vocabulary and create flowing text with accurate spelling. Students can listen to words in both the predictor and the spell checker before using them, helping them to find the word they want.
BUILD WRITING CONFIDENCE WITH WORDBARS
The unique Wordbars provide tabbed vocabulary support for any subject or topic – just click a word to add it to the document. Make your own Wordbars in a flash to support any topic, or get free, ready-made ones from our LearningGrids site, accessible within the app and covering a range of curriculum topics.
CHECK WORDS BEFORE THEY ARE USED
Learners can listen to words before they write them, helping them to find the word they want and achieve writing success. Any word in the predictor, spell checker or Wordbar can be heard before it is used with a simple right-click, or our unique Sound Shift tool.
USE IT YOUR WAY
In the simple Settings menu, select American, British or Australian English, and customize the voice, font and colors. Save documents to your Google drive in one of three formats, including Google Document. And DocsPlus works anywhere, whether or not you have an Internet connection.
