Please Consider

To use the app fully an individual will require good fine motor skills to select text, copy and paste, play back and export.

An individual may need support to insert punctuation where appropriate.

Generalise Skills and Knowledge

Text in the app can be exported or printed to be used in other contexts, e.g. a shopping list can be developed to take to the shops.

Text could also be exported into other apps such as story writing apps or emailing apps.

The iPad keyboard may be difficult for an individual to use, therefore an external keyboard may be used wirelessly or attached to the iPad.
