Included imported graphics can also be used to prompt and support writing with the "get picture button," and on-screen tools enable the user to work without using menus. On-screen highlighting as the text is read enables the student to connect the spoken words with the written words. As the program speaks letters, words, and sentences, students can self-correct their own work.
