WordPower provides access to core vocabulary, with additional words available in just a few selections.
Language studies have shown that we reuse a small number of words very often when we speak, often referred to as our "core vocabulary". WordPower places this core vocabulary on the main grid, so these words are readily available in a single selection.
To find words that are not included in the core vocabulary, you can type (with prediction) or go to one of the vocabulary pages, which are arranged by topic.
The Grid 2 versions of WordPower use features such as verb morphology and spelling support.
Picture WordPower displays symbols next to the words to aid word-finding. Symbols are also displayed in prediction cells. You can use either PCS or WLS symbols.
For users who do not require symbols, Text WordPower provides a less cluttered display.
Alternate versions of WordPower are included for switch users. These have some re-arrangements to increase the efficiency of scanning the grids and keyboards, and also use block-scanning to make cell selection easier.
The original WordPower concept was developed by Nancy Inman, and the Grid 2 version was created by Gillian Hazell.
