Fun way to practice, but pronunciations need work.

The spelling lists and the ability to make your own lists for kids to practice for their school spelling test make WORD WIZARD worth buying. It's also fun for kids to spell their own words or sentences and hear them spoken back by a computerized voice speaking UK or American English; settings can also change the voice via speed and tone. But be aware this is not a perfect word-to-voice translator: Kids may misspell some words and still have them auto-pronounced correctly, so you may want to clue them into looking at the red glow around incorrectly spelled words and remind them to keep trying or ask for help so misspelling isn't reinforced.

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.
