WriteType 1.2.130 is now available! WriteType is a word-processor
designed for schools to help young students write better. It gives
students who have a hard time writing an easier approach in putting
their ideas on paper. The new release makes it even easier for
students to succeed! Some new features include:
* Phrase Completion — While WriteType has always had the ability
to quickly complete words, it now has the ability to complete commonly
used phrases as well. As you type, WriteType will detect which
phrases you use most frequently, and suggest them along with the
words. Clicking on the suggestions will insert them into the
* Reading back words as they are typed — In order to help students
internalize what they are typing, WriteType will optionally read back
words immediately after they are typed.
* Reading back words in the list of suggestions — Each word in the
list of suggestions has a speaker icon on it that, when clicked, will
read the word out loud.
* Aesthetic improvements — WriteType has a brand new look!
* Global Setting Overrides — Setting up WriteType for a large
school or organization on a network is now much easier.
Administrators can optionally specify settings for the whole network,
instead of just on a computer-by-computer basis.
WriteType can be downloaded for GNU/Linux and Windows.
Bug reports, feature requests, and patches are always welcome. If you
are looking to get more involved, WriteType is in dire need of a
Windows maintainer, and could always use new developers and
translators. As always, though, the best thing you can to to help
WriteType is to get it into the hands of students, teachers, and
schools that could benefit!
