Great review of Ipad Apps - some of these are still 'beta', but they are cheaper than the full software and helpful for students more comfortable with Ipads than laptops.

We've been hearing great things about Voice Dream Reader - and nice to see a more affordable option for Co-Writer...although it still needs more to make it completely compatible with microsoft word documents.


Kurzweil, Learning Ally, Bookshare, Voice Dream Reader, Co:Writer, Prizmo (OCR for the Iphone, Ipad, and Itouch), Quizlet (flashcards), Inspiration Mind Maps and Livescribe Wifi Smartpen.
