Crosswords and More
Crosswords and More is designed to improve spelling and vocabulary in a fun and motivating
way. It contains four types of exercise: Crosswords, Word Search, Match Pictures to Words
and Missing Letters.
It includes nearly eight hundred ready-made exercises divided into three difficulty levels
and three grid sizes, all of which are editable.
Speech support is provided throughout the program. Click on the picture clues to hear
words spoken before or whilst you are trying to spell them. Letters are spoken as they are
added to the grid, and words are spoken as they are completed. Within the editor you have
the option to configure individual words to have their letters spoken using letter sounds or letter
New word lists and exercises can be created using the editors included in the program. You
can use the existing image and speech libraries to create new word lists and exercises, and you
can easily add your own images and speech. A Random Crossword Generator allows new
exercises to be created in a few mouse clicks.
Optionally you can display up to eight Help Letters on the screen below the grid for an extra
level of support.
All the exercises can be printed out to be solved on paper.
When you order you will receive your download instructions and licence
by email from us. This email will be from a human(!) so please do not expect
an instant download upon purchase. Downloads are not refundable. Thank
The program can be used with a mouse, a touch screen, eye gaze, a keyboard
or one or two switches.
