Ms.App reviewer ,

Hard to Understand

It is VERY hard to understand what word they are trying to have the child spell. A waste of money.

Developer Response ,

We now have audio clips for most words recorded by a native speaker so hopefully the words are much easier to understand.

Not American English, it’s British English

It made it difficult for my child to understand dictation.

Developer Response ,

You select a language option in the app side menu and access US English spellings and pronunciation.
