Talking Word Processor and Flexible Authoring Tool

IntelliTalk 3 is an innovative and award-winning word processor that allows students to combine graphics, text, and speech to support and enhance writing and communication skills. It includes special features that promote comprehension, reinforce concepts, and provide a multi-sensory writing environment for all learners.

IntelliTalk 3 is also an excellent authoring tool, ideal for creating curriculum activities. Even better, you can easily modify activities for English language learners or any student struggling with reading or writing. And you don't have to start from scratch: IntelliTalk 3 includes a number of predesigned activities. Teacher-created text can be locked on the screen, allowing students to benefit from story-starters, informational text, and on-screen worksheets.

Classroom Applications
With IntelliTalk 3, you can track students' activity responses and quiz answers, and then record, report, and print student records for student assessment. IntelliTalk 3 tracks each student's performance in his or her own private portfolio, records student responses, compares them to expected answers, and makes their scoring results available in both detailed and summary reports.

Builds Independent Writers
Students soon become their own editors as they listen to and correct their work. Text can be read back to the student—a word, a sentence, or a page at a time, allowing them to hear if they have left out or misspelled a word. Graphics from IntelliTalk 3's picture library or student's own graphics can be added to documents, providing support for beginning readers and enhancing quizzes and student reports.

Students can also access Spell Check, change font sizes and colors, hear text read aloud, erase, save or print with the touch of a single key. An onscreen alphabet is available to focus students' attention on the screen.

Universal Access
The concept of Universal Design—that all students, regardless of physical and learning differences, have access to our products—has been a long-standing philosophy that guides IntelliTools' software and hardware innovations. Our programming environments enable our software to feature speech output, single-switch scanning, and automatic sending of IntelliKeys overlays in addition to access by a standard keyboard, mouse or touch-screen. Our products also meet the accessibility requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
