Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!
Spelling can be challenging for many individuals. Fortunately, there are apps like Sir Linkalot Spelling to help!
According to its website, this award-winning app improves spelling for students of all ages. It helps individuals learn how to spell any word they want by watching short, funny animations on the app. Then users can test themselves and keep track of results.
The app is divided into the five key elements of literacy: spelling, homophones, rules & patterns, punctuation & grammar, and etymology. These are categorized into “bundles” with each based on a renowned literary figure. The developers are always adding more bundles to the app to expand your spelling knowledge further.
Unlike many spelling apps, Sir Linkalot Spelling doesn’t rely on kids just practicing repeatedly. In addition to letting them practice, it helps them learn words as well. It does this with a huge amount of animation-based content that teaches children methods to spell words.
Check it out on the App Store to learn more!
