PixWriter™ is a picture-assisted writing tool for beginning writers of any age. The combination of symbol support with highlighted text and speech help students write independently. Students can compose written documents without mastering phonics, spelling, and alphabet skills. Students write by selecting word bank buttons, typing with a keyboard, or both. Word bank buttons are filled as the instructor types words followed by the spacebar; symbols are automatically added as words are typed. Customized vocabulary word banks can be created to fit the student’s abilities, assignment requirements, and IEP goals. Documents can be printed, saved, and shared via email and AirDrop. PixWriter Lite is a separate and free app. It can receive, read aloud, and print documents that have been created with the full featured PixWriter program.
