Keyboard extensions

  

With new Keyboard extensions you can plug in keyboards from other apps and use them across a range of other apps. This allows a user to unlock the power of some impressive Keyboards and use them in their favourite apps. One such Keyboard extension is Lowercase.

Lowercase Keyboard is a custom keyboard that uses both lowercase and uppercase letters, as well as a simplified set of numbers and special characters. The keyboard has been designed with primary students in mind.  

Lowercase Keyboard follows the layout of the default keyboard closely so it is easy to use. The font of the Lowercase Keyboard is "OpenDyslexic" which has been created to increase readability for readers with dyslexia. 

 

Another useful keyboad extension comes from Assistiveware, and is called Keedogo/Keeble. Which is available in 3 versions. Keedogo for students just learning to read, write and type. Keedogo Plus, which includes Automatic Captialisation and word prediction. While, Keeble is an iOS keyboard that allows users with fine motor-challenges, switch users and users with vision impairments to type in any app.

 

The keyboard provides a simplified layout with just the essential keys so early writers can focus only developing their skills rather than being distracted by symbols and functions they don’t yet need.

Keedogo offers the possibility to choose a QWERTY or ABC layout. Featuring lowercase letters and color-coded vowels, learning has never been easier. Keedogo can be used in any app as an alternative to the standard iOS keyboard.
