Text-to-speech

WiViK incorporates WordQ technology for its speech output.

Typing echo

You can have letters, words, and sentences spoken as you type. Any combination of these may be used.

Speech feedback dialog

Proofreading text

Proofreading sentences with the Read button located on the WiViK keyboard uses both visual and spoken cues to help you find mistakes in word order, word form, missing words, grammar, spelling and punctuation. By listening to the flow of words you can hear whether it makes sense. You can often hear mistakes that you don’t see.

This is fully available in Microsoft Word, WordPad, Notepad, and Outlook. Here, the sentence is spoken with each word highlighted word-by-word, emphasizing the visual/auditory shape of each word.

All of this is done directly in the word processor application. At the end of the sentence, the sentence is highlighted again so that you do not lose your place. You can repeat reading the sentence.

When other applications are used (e.g., WordPerfect, Internet Explorer, Inspiration), word-by-word highlighting is not available and you must manually highlight the text. If you want word-by-word highlighting, you can easily copy and paste the text into Notepad or WordPad for reading.

Predicted words

Predicted words are spoken when highlighted.
