Dyslexia Writing Technology: Voice Dream Writer

Posted by Erica Warren on

This blog shares my video podcast, featuring dyslexia advocate and author, Winston Chen. Winston tells us all about the many benefits of his app, Voice Dream Writer for individuals with dyslexia. This is the fifth of many free video podcasts for Go Dyslexia! 

 

What is Voice Dream Writer?

Voice Dream Writer is an iOS app that can be used on an iPad or iPhone. It is an easy to use writing application that has a number of powerful features.

Teaching Writing

Voice Dream Reader Offers a Number of Helpful Tools:

  • Dictation or Voice to Text: Voice Dream Writer offers voice to text or dictation, so you can speak to your iPad or phone and the words will appear.
  • Proofreading: Now you can edit your writing by listening to the text spoken aloud. Like a personal proofreader, Voice Dream Writer uses text-to-speech technology, so that awkward sentences, grammatical errors and typos can be easily found. It addition, Voice Dream Writer can read words and sentences as they’re typed or dictated so that errors can be corrected in the moment.
  • Word Finding and Definitions: Voice Dream Writer helps individuals find the right words through phonetic search or meaning search. For example, search for “inuf,”, and you will find “enough”, or search for “large balloon” by meaning and you will find “zeppelin.” Word Finder also shows the dictionary definition of a word.
  • Organizing Ideas: Voice Dream Writer automatically keeps a separate outline of headings, paragraphs and sentences. The Outline helps writers structure their writing and easily reorganize paragraphs and sections. In addition, it allows the author to go anywhere in a document without endless scrolling.
