This is the product I'm considering:
It's pretty expensive so I wanted to get some opinions if possible.
My daughter is 13yo with a language processing disorder. She was/is speech delayed but she can get complete thoughts out verbally now. Her writing skills have gone from almost non-exsistant from a year ago (Very simple sentences were still a struggle a year ago) to writing some two to three paragraphs this year. She still needs help with most aspects such as spelling (she puts a word she thinks is close and I come to help her find the proper spelling) and her punctuation is much better in the past few months. She uses her ipod to look a lot of words up when she is reading and uses Google for clues on spelling (don't we all???). Her coping techniques have grown quite a bit since her 13th birthday last June.
Next week she will start her first research project for an assignment in biology. I will probably not purchase this speak to type program for a couple months so I can gather as much info as I can.

Sorry, but I don't have much experience with talk to type. Nevin wouldn't be able to be understood...... so I've never really researched them much.
