What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a genetic difference in a person’s ability to learn and process information. It often presents challenges with reading, writing, and spelling. According to the British Dyslexia Association (BDA), the functional impact of dyslexia can include difficulties in phonological awareness, verbal memory and verbal processing speed.

Writing long reports or essays can be an overwhelming and frustrating experience. It can sometimes feel like an impossible task.

Rather than writing or typing, TalkType allows you to leverage your strengths by using your voice to help you get the job done. Spend less time worrying and more time feeling more productive.

Freedom to express yourself

With dictation, you can write down exactly what you want. Don’t be afraid of using those difficult words or phrases. TalkType empowers you to turn thoughts into writing at the pace of your speech.

You can add unique words with TalkType’s Custom Words feature. This is handy for adding technical terminology or distinctive names. Add them to TalkType once and it will recognise those words forever.

Organise information to suit your preferences

Different coloured backgrounds can improve readability. That’s why TalkType offers the option to customise how you view your dictation through Dark and Light mode. You can also switch to the OpenDyslexic font, a typeface with heavier lines that some find a real aid to reading.
