[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Second Guess Apps today launched a major update to the popular dyslexia tools, Typ-O and Typ-O HD. Designed for people with dyslexia, the apps are essential for students and professionals who benefit from subtle help when preparing messages, notes or documents on the iPhone or iPad.
The apps not only fix spelling mistakes, but provide useful suggestions for the word being typed, and the next word. With intelligent word prediction and phrase prediction options, Typ-O and Typ-O HD offer fast and intuitive tools to help get documents prepared more easily and more accurately. Created with people with dyslexia in mind, the apps' features are clever and can be tailored to each person's requirements.
* Self learning intelligent word prediction
* Speech to text
* Thematic dictionaries for science, mathematics, history, sociology
* Save and export your notes
* Dropbox sync
* The voice integration
* Phrase prediction
* Send email or print directly from the app
"No two people with dyslexia are the same," explains Kasia Zawadzka, project manager, "so it was so important to create customisation options that meant people can really set up the app with the tools that help them."
Pricing and Availability:
Typ-O 6.0 is $4.99, and Typ-O HD 6.0 is $14.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies). Both apps are available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.
