Spelling App for the Visually Impaired

Taken from ACB Forum January 2015

I am a mother of a bright 10-year-old kid who happens to be blind. He is very good at picking up concepts and is a voracious reader.  But I realized his spelling was a little weak. So I decided to make an app for him to help him practice spelling on the go, on an iPad. You can find the app at https://itunes.apple.com/US/app/id863101641?mt=8.

I would be really happy if more kids could use and give feedback, and let us know how we could make it better. Send your suggested improvements to ruchi_patil@samruddha.net.
