This keyboard is well worth its hefty price tag and may change the game for struggling writers. The platform is simple, and the editing window that opens clearly separates spelling and grammar options. Dyslexia Keyboard will read any text aloud, whether it's typed by the user or found in the suggested list of words. It checks spelling, grammar, and punctuation by highlighting them in different colors in the editing window and not on the original text, which will help kids focus on the sentence they're editing. The built-in dictionary may be more suitable for older users, but it's also simple and focused on helping kids make the right word selection. Overall, the speed, ease, and correctness of the predictive features make this one of the best options on the market to date.

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.
