Is It Any Good?

For use on a social app where perfect grammar and mechanics are not required, this would be a great app, but it doesn't work well in all scenarios. Because Active Voice : Speech-To-Text isn't content-specific, when users are trying to create text for science or social studies, many proper names or vocabulary words are garbled. The software also works best in smaller chunks: Kids should type one paragraph or less before sharing it or copying it into a better browser. Multiple paragraphs get confusing within the app and may frustrate some kids. Overall, it's a solid tool that may help some kids, but it has enough flaws to frustrate others.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
