Penfriend XL brings dyslexic and physically disabled users benefits including the confidence to write more, the accuracy to write what they mean, and the speed to write more in the time available. Penfriend XP features:
- Word prediction using a dictionary of known words, along with detailed knowledge of their grammatical type and words they have used before
- Text-to-speech functionality to read aloud words on the screen, including words that you haven’t written yet
- On-screen keyboard that mirrors key features of a conventional QWERTY layout using colours of the user’s choice
- Edit lexicons to help improve spelling and vocabulary
- Set short codes to automatically replace with a word, phrase or sentence
Penfriend XL is built upon XP but adds additional functionality in native languages to help anyone who is learning a foreign language or where English is a second language (ESL).
