Suitable for all writing and publishing tasks at home and at school, its ease of use and configurability make it just as ideal for 5 year-olds as it is for adults.
As a word processor it has all the usual features, plus the power of speech. Using Acapela text to speech, Textease talks, reading your work back to you for proof reading and foreign language learning. Menus and dialogues are changed instantly and automatically to the chosen language.
Thanks to the Textease 'click anywhere and type' facility, children are able to use a range of multimedia elements such as photographs, videos, sound files and animated gifs on their pages. French and German versions of Acapela text to speech enrich the Textease features with a lively interface, for creative minds.
