Most of the language tools on the market have common features such as text-to-speech, word prediction, spelling, highlighting, Thesaurus, Synonymous, etc. I listed a few free/low cost software a few weeks ago, and some of these software also have similar features. Do you think that we can replace some language tools on the market such as Kurzweil 3000 or WYNN with free software in the classroom?
How about apps on iPad/iPod touch? Can these apps replace any educational software? If you have any experience or opinions, I would appreciate your sharing of tips.
