Spelling coach

Improve your spelling with this simple program.

Build your skills for spelling with this interesting tutorial program. While its commands are confusing at times, the results are hard to beat. Users will be able to find help by utilizing this program.

The program has a sleek look, which gives a professional impression. However, users will be wise to look over the massive Help file for directions on how to create their own word lists, since there is no direction on how to navigate the various boxes and command buttons to do so. Users must start by creating one of these lists, so they can focus on words they need to improve upon. Users must manually input the words for their list and have to choose a separate button, which takes them online to get the audio of each word. Once the lists are created, the program really shines. Users are briefly shown the word, or verbally told the word, and a timer begins. Users must correctly type each word to move on to the next. If incorrect answers are given, they come back at the end and the test will not conclude until all have been answered. The program also offers a great feature in its Statistics Center. This option allows users to look at individual lists and see how well users did on the tests.

While its interface is initially confusing, users will embrace this program throughout its 30-day trial for its ability to focus on troublesome words and help with spelling.
