The much anticipated update to WordQ 5 is here!

A year ago, the team here at Quillsoft asked our users a question; “what one thing would you add to or change about WordQ?” The responses flooded in and they were shockingly similar. WordQ users the world over, whether they were; students, advocates, teachers, people that require assistive technology in the work place, or our own Quillsoft Ambassadors, told us that what WordQ was missing was a way to use it when working with a PDF.

Users like you asked, and the Quillsoft team listened. We are thrilled to announce that WordQ PDF for Windows is now available in a Free update to WordQ 5. Whether you are hoping to use WordQ PDF to take tests or complete assignments in class, or to fill out forms at work or at home, we’ve got you covered. WordQ PDF within WordQ 5 has all the functionality of WordQ – word prediction, speech feedback, definitions, and more.

Important Note on Mac Compatibility

WordQ for Mac is a 32-Bit application and is currently NOT compatible with macOS 10.15 Catalina. Catalina requires all software to be a 64-Bit application or it simply will not run on the new O/S. If you are running Catalina or you upgrade to Catalina, your WordQ for Mac will not work.

A 64-bit version of WordQ 5 for Mac is being developed but it will not be ready for some time.

Current 32-bit editions of WordQ will continue to operate with Apple’s previous operating systems (10.9 Mavericks to 10.14 Mojave).
