for Windows 7/8/10 (32/64-bit) and MacOS 10.9+
Enhanced writing tool for elementary, middle and secondary schools
Reduce spelling and grammar errors as you write, focus on your ideas, and proofread with ease
WordQ is a writing skill improvement and compensation tool that works on top of any Windows or MacOS application where students write. All students and workers benefit, including English Language Learners (ELL), Second Language Learners (ELL), and struggling writers.
WordQ helps students create better quality written work with greater independence and ease with less stress. Intelligent word prediction suggests words appropriate for elementary and secondary school levels. Students write faster and produce more, and get help with spelling and grammar with as little as one or two keystrokes.
As students write, WordQ learns their writing style and suggests words based on their writing history. There’s no criticism and no pressure, so writing can be enjoyable.
By intentional design, with input from seasoned educators, WordQ does not write for students nor fix all their mistakes. They must still do their own writing but WordQ makes it easier to independently write more effectively.
