Talking Word Processor
Students type into Clicker from the keyboard, or use Clicker Grids to enter words and pictures, so you really can use it across your age and ability range. Each sentence is automatically read out as it is completed, with every word clearly highlighted as it is spoken, enabling learners to follow the text and review what they have written. Research shows that this active engagement with text encourages students to find and correct errors for themselves.

Clicker’s intelligent word predictor suggests words that fit the context of the student’s writing, encouraging them to use more adventurous vocabulary. Children are able to create flowing pieces of text with accurate spelling and grammatically correct sentences.

The Crick Picture Library 3 contains over 2500 curriculum pictures, which can be used in documents, Clicker Sets, the predictor and the talking spellchecker. The library makes it easy for students to illustrate their own books or documents, and for teachers to provide graphical support for learners who need additional help.

Review writing with Clicker’s Clear Voice
By default, each sentence is automatically read as it is completed. This encourages students to punctuate their work, and ensure that they review each sentence before starting the next one. This helps students take responsibility for their writing, and make corrections as they write. Words are clearly highlighted as they are spoken, enabling students to follow the words in their Clicker document as they are read.

For those needing more support, each word or letter can be read as it is entered, giving students instant feedback. Any combination of the options can be used to give the optimum settings for individual learners.

Develop vocabulary and spelling with Word Prediction
Clicker’s intelligent word predictor suggests words that fit the context of the student’s writing, encouraging them to use more adventurous vocabulary. Children are able to create flowing pieces of text with accurate spelling and grammatically correct sentences.

A list of possible next words is offered as you complete the word you are typing. If the word you want is not in the list, just start typing – your word is likely to appear after just two or three letters!

For struggling spellers, Crick Software’s SoundsLike technology detects what the word being typed sounds like. It then predicts words that begin with that sound. For example if you type ‘wen’, Clicker predicts ‘when’ and ‘Wednesday’, as well as ‘went’!

Build reading and writing confidence with Clicker Sets
Clicker grids, books and pages give students point-and-click access to whole words, phrases and pictures, helping them to construct their work more independently. Create a set of grids to help students write a more substantial piece of work in manageable steps.

Sentence building grids typically contain all the words required to build a sentence. Some cells may also contain pictures to help students identify words, and all cells have speech on right-click so the user can hear the word before they write it.

Easy to create Clicker Activities
The Clicker 6 wizards are a completely new way of creating Clicker activities. Simply add in your content, and the wizards instantly transform them into a Clicker activity. There are also lots of Clicker templates too! 

Encourage Creativity
Adding a creative dimension to writing activities really helps children to actively engage with the task at hand. Clicker’s child-friendly Click and Edit activities enable your students to independently create their very own talking books and presentations, on any topic!

Crick Software popular painting program, Clicker Paint, is now fully integrated into Clicker, and with built-in webcam support, students are able to take photographs that instantly appear in their Clicker document.

Develop English as a second language literacy skills
Students use Clicker talking books independently. Listening to the text while studying the picture helps to introduce new words and develop understanding. Creating Clicker talking books is a perfect way to practise speaking skills. For example, make a picture book of a familiar environment and let the student record his or her voice on each page, naming the relevant objects. 

Crick Picture Library
The enhanced Clicker 6 Picture Library contains over 2500 engaging curriculum pictures. The library makes it easy for students to illustrate their own books or documents, and for teachers to provide graphical support for learners who need additional help.

The library is divided into curriculum-related folders and provides a wide range of clear, instantly recognisable pictures. It’s easy to find the picture you want by browsing the library from within the program’s picture palette. 

Support students with special needs
Use Clicker with symbols to support students with special literacy or communication needs as they take part in reading, writing and communication activities. Support schildren with dyslexia by providing a child-friendly talking word processor supported by the unique Clicker Grids, enabling students to produce a piece of writing to be proud of.

Clicker is the perfect tool to use with students with learning difficulties, because it enables you to present students with activities that are broken down into small steps, and to revisit learning objectives many times using a variety of activities.

Clicker’s multisensory approach of using words, pictures and sounds keeps learners interested and motivated, and enables them to achieve success.

All Clicker activities are fully accessible with switches. Clicker grids are scanned either automatically (if you are using a single switch scan) or by pressing a second switch. Students who can use a mouse or tracker ball but struggle to press the buttons can access Clicker 6 with the new Mouse Dwell method. Just hold the pointer over a cell or button for a set period and it activates without any button press.

In addition to the high quality speech, the clean, uncluttered screen layout, and the customisable colour-coded grids, Clicker includes a range of extensive accessibility options for students with low vision.
