Writing with ease
A simple standalone text editor is used for writing with the support of word prediction and speech feedback features, matching many of the key features of our desktop WordQ software and iWordQ for iPad. It runs offline, and you can open and save documents on your Google Drive (when online) or locally (when offline). The intent is not to replicate all the features of Google Docs, but to offer a much simpler supportive writing space for note-taking, initial drafts and editing with minimal formatting.

Advanced word prediction
Predicted words are displayed as you type. Even if you are creative in your spelling, WordQ will still accurately predict. Usage examples are provided to help distinguish close-sounding words (including homonyms). As you move through your text, predictions are shown accurately in-context. The included vocabulary is for people who are writing at a secondary school level. It includes about 15,000 words commonly used at a grade 7 and above. The associated background dictionary includes about 88,000 English words, plus common proper names for this country.

Hear what you write
WordQ speaks back letters, words, and sentences as you type. Any combination of these may be used. Words from the prediction list are read out loud. Note: WordQ is specifically not designed as a universal text reader. Text reading is intended to help in the writing and editing process.

One of the most beneficial uses of WordQ is proofreading sentences, which uses both visual and spoken cues to help you find mistakes in word order, word form, missing words, grammar, spelling and punctuation. By listening to the flow of words you can hear whether it makes sense. You can often hear mistakes that you don’t see. A special proofreading mode uses the following approach: focus on a sentence; hear your sentence spoken; step through the sentence word-by-word to locate any mistakes (e.g., you may hear two words that sound wrong together, or you may have left out a word out); edit with word prediction support; then listen to your sentence again.

You can emphasize predicted words within a topical area. If you also have thoughtQ for Chrome, you can easily import topic lists automatically created there.

Documents are compatible with Google Docs (with some limitations) as text-only. A Google Docs document with notes and references created in thoughtQ for Chromebook can be opened in WordQ. WordQ suggests words to use and provides spoken feedback to help you find mistakes. Users of all ages who have struggle with writing and editing can benefit from using WordQ.
