Easy to Use Independently

Patients use it independently thanks to special features...

  • IntelliHints

    Allow independent use of the program.  If the user answers incorrectly, the program will highlight the portion of the story that contains the answer to the question.  This helps the user learn to find pertinent portions of a passage.

  • Reading Cursor

    Helps the patient follow the text (excellent for those with left or right neglect).   The Reading Cursor highlights one word at a time and moves forward as the user presses the right-arrow key.

  • Large print (text font). 

    Great for those with vision difficulties.  You can make the print up to several inches tall.

Deluxe & Pro Features

  • Make exercises easier by showing only 2 or 3 choices (instead of 4).
  • Make exercises harder by doing memory practice. Shows the story then patient answers questions based on what they remember from the story.
