Make writing more accessible with speech-to-text

May 22, 2017


Today's tip:


Many students have a hard time getting ideas out of their head and onto paper. Recently, we suggested having an adult scribe for the student to make the task less arduous. Another option is to use “speech-to-text” software like Dragon Naturally Speaking, Google Speech to Text, or one of these many others. The technology is relatively new and constantly evolving, but be assured it is effective. It can help simplify the writing process and make it a significantly more accessible and enjoyable experience for your child.

The Engaging Minds Difference


Engaging Minds offers a unique approach to traditional tutoring: we teach students how to learn and provide them with academic skills and strategies they need to succeed over the long-term. In addition to providing support in writing, reading comprehension, and problem-solving, we focus on teaching the increasingly important executive function skills (organization, prioritization, initiation of tasks, time management, planning, goal-setting) and guide students to become independent and self-confident learners. With these fundamental skills in place, students are better able to effectively approach, manage and complete nightly homework assignments, and are better poised to achieve their full potential.
