Writing Integration Across Devices
In the past, transferring files between school, home, and across computers was challenging at best, and sometimes impossible. Co:Writer Universal eliminates this obstacle entirely. Students simply write in Co:Writer’s built-in word processor for iPad or Chrome, and the writing is shared through the cloud!
Settings Integration Across Devices
Set background and text preferences and create a Topic Dictionary in any platform and they automatically sync in any other platform or device.
In less than a year, Co:Writer for iOS has made the list of top 100 most popular education apps. Co:Writer for iOS includes many of the key supports you rely on to help your most struggling writers, such as FlexSpell™ and Topic Dictionaries, which carry over when using Co:Writer on other devices. And now writings are saved to the cloud so they are accessible across iPads, desktop, and Chromebooks.
Keyboard for iPad
Co:Writer Universal includes a keyboard for your iPads (iTouch and iPhones too)! Use it anywhere you write like email, websites, and Google Drive. It works just like Apple’s stock keyboard, but the prediction is much better and it supports Topic Dictionaries and data collection. The data fully integrates with Educator Dashboard.
See it for yourself in this quick, 2-minute video.
Word Prediction Settings for iPad
Customize Co:Writer to meet your specific needs. Change the look and feel, speech settings, and voices. Your updated settings will automatically sync across platforms through the cloud.
Co:Writer Universal Extension for Chrome integrates with the Chrome browser for word prediction and speech recognition just about anywhere students write online, including Google Drive, blogs, social networks and email. Co:Writer instantly scrapes email contents and webpages for unique vocabulary that can be automatically included into Co:Writer’s Topic Dictionaries.
Word Prediction in Chrome
Co:Writer Universal seamlessly integrates through the Chrome browser on Mac, Windows, and Chromebooks. Both an app and extension are available for nearly any writing task and include Co:Writer’s unmatchable Flexspell™ technology and grammar-based recognition.
Word Prediction Settings for Chrome
Settings allow you to customize Co:Writer to meet your specific needs. Change the look and feel, number of guesses, speech settings, and voices. Any changes to your settings will automatically sync across platforms through the cloud.
Exporting in Chrome
Take your writings and share them to Google Drive, Dropbox, Facebook, or copy and paste them in other applications and word processors. You can even print them out to hand in the traditional way.
Co:Writer Extension for Chrome
Get Co:Writer support on just about any website. Whether updating your blog, writing an email, or writing a report in Google Drive, you’ll have access to Co:Writer’s grammar-smart word prediction and topic dictionaries.
If students can write just 30% of what they want to say, Co:Writer will do the rest. As students write, Co:Writer "predicts” what they’re trying to say and offers word suggestions in real time. Even the most egregious spelling and grammar mistakes aren’t a problem for Co:Writer’s proprietary FlexSpell™ technology. Co:Writer goes further, bringing in topic-specific vocabulary instantly when writing in the content areas. You have to try it with a student to believe the impact it has!

Settings for Desktop
Co:Writer offers extensive options for most accessibility needs for display, prediction, and speech.
Need to speak it? No problem. Just click on the microphone choice -- you speak, Co:writer writes it. Great for starting an idea or narrowing a choice you don’t see. Seamlessly use speech supports when you need it, but be able to go to typing and selecting when that works better.
See Co:Writer’s built-in speech recognition for yourself in this 2-min demo.
Predict in the topic you’re writing about to improve accuracy and build specialized vocabulary. Over 4 million topic dictionaries are at your fingertips covering all curriculum subjects. Just type the first few letters of the topic name and choose the topic. The topic-specific words are automatically added to Co:Writer predictions.
Momentary Topic Dictionaries automatically scrape email contents and webpages for unique vocabulary and bring them into Co:Writer’s dictionaries. So if you’re replying to an email, you may be surprised to see the sender’s name and words from their email automatically appear in your guesses!
Co:Writer Universal adds speech capabilities to your device. Simply select a passage of text and right click. Co:Writer can speak the text aloud. It can also add words in the selection to your personal word dictionary or create a new Topic Dictionary from the passage.
The word bank helps break writer’s block. It automatically presents a list of topic-specific words whenever a Topic Dictionary is selected, and is available in both list and word cloud view.
It’s hard to make good decisions without good data. Fortunately, Co:Writer Universal gives you access to the kind of data you need to make great decisions. It shows you how much students are writing with Co:Writer as well as their vocabulary acquisition and usage. This data gives you a level of fidelity of implementation that you’ve never had before!
See Co:Writer Data in this 3-minute video.
