Welcome to the sixth post in our in-depth series about the different features in TextAid.

This week, we’ll have a look at the writing assistance feature in TextAid. Watch our quick video to get a feel for this tool.

To access the writing assistance tool, make sure you are in the text editor.

Click the Writing assistance icon icon to open the writing assistance tool.

The default setting in TextAid has the writing assistance tool turned off. You can select different settings for the writing assistance tool: to read aloud each letter as it is typed, each word as it is typed, and each sentence as it is typed.

Choose any combination of these three options. The options you have chosen can be seen in the example window.

Writing assistance example

When you select ‘letter’, each letter will be read aloud as it is typed.

When you select ‘word’, a completed word will be read aloud when the space bar is pushed, as the space signals the end of the word.

When you select ‘sentence,’ completed sentences will be read aloud when the period is entered, followed by a space to indicate the next sentence.

Use the writing assistance tool to check your spelling, and check the fluency of your sentences by having them read aloud. Listening to your own writing is a great way to ensure that your text has a good flow.
