Kids with limited ability to type or with learning challenges could benefit from using DRAGON DICTATION. Kids who use this free app must be able to speak clearly and they or someone else should checks their notes for dictation accuracy. The voice recognition is surprisingly good, but it isn't perfect. Many younger kids may not speak clearly enough for this app to pick up what they're saying accurately, which could make for nonsensical sentences. Dragon Dictation is a good tool with limitations.

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.
