    Could you send me information about the integrated spell checking program please.

  2. Sanford says:

    Rosemary,
    If you click on their website link, you can get the information as well as how to reach their (Ghotot) customer service. They’ll be glad to help.

  3. Jenny Steven says:

    Is the Ghotit Programme research and evidence based?
    is it recognised by Ministry of Education NZ?
    Thank you
    Jenny

      Jenny, thanks for checking in on this. My experience with Ghotit and the people associated is top notch. Part of my comment is based on who they are and the fact that my friend Richard Wanderman (who was one of the pre-eminent ed-tech for dyslexia students guys) recommended and vouched for them and the integrity of their products. I do think they’re quite grounded in empirical evidence. I don’t know about the NZ Ministry’s position. Let us know if you find anything further.

  4. Jenny Steven says:

    Will follow up with NZ Ministry of Education and let you know; we need to use evidence-based material!
    Bye Jenny

    Jenny,
    I contacted the folks at Ghotit figuring they could give you some further details.
    Here, cut and pasted is their reply to me. Hope this helps.

    “Ghotit has earned last year approval of DSA England:
    drive.google.com/file/d/19q5DvY6IhNrKZnuGKpftYzcF1do4tZLB/view

    We have had approval of US Veterans Department for many years.

    You can find Ghotit in the recent research/comparison of Word-Prediction tools
    made by Edinburg University CALL Scotland group:

    www.callscotland.org.uk/common-assets/cm-files/books/a-guide-to-word-prediction.pdf

    Our software is sold in Australia and has approvals there
    of the local governments and distributor there is Spectronics.

    Unfortunately, we have no distributors and no clues about New Zealand,
    and what their authorities think about us.

    Recently, we have launched our new product for Chromebooks,
    and we will announce broadly very soon. Here’s our dyslexia / dysgraphia software in action: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhoTVo7eQKc

    Kind regards,
