My Sight Words


Kids have fun while learning to read.
"My Sight Words" helps pre and early readers develop their skills through a fun and kid-friendly interaction with sight words (also known as Dolch words). Control/navigation is intuitive with spoken words, audible feedback, voice recognition and three learning modes.

v2.1 Added ability for users to create and edit their own lists of words.

Features:
* Optimized for both phone and tablet size displays
* Preloaded with complete sight word lists for readers of various levels (includes the set of classic Dolch word lists and a set of modern sight word lists)
* Three learning modes: Intro, Practice, and Quiz
* User can create their own word lists
* User can record their own voice for word pronunciation.
* Words are spoken to help learning and pronunciation (if and when words are spoken is controlled by reader and depends on the selected learning mode)
* Speech recognition lets readers verify they are pronouncing words correctly. (Please, read the advice on how best to introduce this capability to new readers, its use, and its limitations.)
* Displays stats about the number of words remaining, hints given, correctly read words, words that needed revisiting, and word list size
* Words appear in random order to ensure recognition and prevent memorization of list
* Words are displayed in fun random colors
* User can select lower case letters or all upper case
* User can configure game play and reader interaction
* User can set a maximum number of words per learning "round" before a reward or break is offered
* In quiz mode, user can specify if speech recognition must be successful before reader gets credit for word
* User can specify if the results of speech recognition (i.e. what the application thinks the reader said) should be displayed to the reader

Planned Enhancements:
* Use gestures for navigation and control so reader can tap or slide word in addition to using buttons
