  4. Feedback for Learning Tools

    In learning tools, it would support comprehension if the tool paused at the end of a bullet pointed statement and before beginning the next

  5. Speech to text for existing recordings

    Speech to Text for already sound recordings already made.
    I know that there is a functionality to search within the sound recordings, maybe you can also allow us to convert the whole recording to text.

  6. Immersive reader

    It would be great if the immersive reader, when reading out loud, would stay on the same page and not open up a new window so that it is possible to see the context in which the text is taken. Ideally the tool would mark the words word by word as it reads aloud.

  8. Add a phonetic feature

    When young children first learn how to read they learn individual sounds and how to blend them together into a word. For example, the word might is segmented into c-ar-t. Individual grapheme sounds such as c & t are written with a dot underneath and digraphs such as 'ar' are underlined to show children that those 2 letters work together to create one sound. These are called sound buttons.

    I think it would be fantastic if there was a feature where you could apply sound buttons to words so that students can attempt to read a word before hearing it.…

  9. outils pour dyslexique

    Enseignant spécialisé depuis plusieurs années dans la compensation troubles DYS et également référent numérique, je souhaiterai vous proposer quelques idées afin d'optimiser des outils déjà très intéressants mais parfois encore un peu difficile à adapter à une situation de classe ainsi qu'au niveau d'autonomie des élèves.
    Ces idées sont relativement simples et peuvent s'appuyer directement sur les fonctions que vous proposez déjà.
    Si cela vous intéresse, je vous laisse me contacter par mail mais sachez qu'il vous manque de peu de chose pour devenir un logiciel de référence pour les personnes atteintes de troubles DYS.
    Quelques idées :

  12. RE: OneNote dictation - type where cursor is/commands

    The dictation needs to appear where I move the cursor. If I move it back, I'd like the dictation to appear at that point and not at the end.

    I'd also like it if dictation could understand commands like Undo or the like.

  13. dictate learning tool period

    When using the Dictate tool in Learning Tools OneNote add-in, the user needs to be able to 'dictate' when to enter a full stop (period) as currently the tool is automatically entering these whenever the user has a slight pause when speaking (resulting in too many full stops/periods appearing while trying to dictate a sentence). Can you amend this function to either need a longer pause length before auto entering a full stop/period OR for voice activated entry as occurs in speech to text apps like ireadwrite. Love the dictate and immersive reader tools!

  14. Immersive Reader tools in French

    I teach in a French First Language School. Thank you for the Immersive reader in French. Will you be offering the comprehension, syllable, noun,verb, adjective function in French soon? Right now it says only available in English. It would be so helpful for my students with Learning Challenges. (I teach grade 5/6). Thank you very much

  16. Option to correct errors made by "Machine generated text"

    Give (teachers) the option to correct Machine generated text.
    Sometimes the "machine" just doesn't generate the correct text. This can cause confusion and disturbance among students. Would it be possible to add an option to manually correct the "machine errors"?

  17. text color

    Allow us to change the font color, not just the background. Yellow is the color we perceive the fastest and if I have a black background and yellow text font I believe I'll be able to recognize words with ease as I am dyslexic.

  20. Immersive Writer

    We would love to develop an Immersive Writer Tool.

    This would be able to look at text students have written and highlight all the sentences that are complete in one color. Maybe fragments could be in another color. If words are not capitalized and should be, just a certain color for the letter.

    Students would be able to see what sentences they have written successfully and get feedback on what they could revise.

    Thanks!

    Liesl
