Help Me Spell - Tutorial

Follow this short tutorial to create your first list.

  1. The 'Main' Screen of the app has 4 bigger functional buttons and 2 smaller informational buttons at the bottom.
  2. Click on the 'Lists' button to invoke the 'All Lists' Screen.  Since there is no list yet, it is basically a blank screen.
  3. Click on the 'Add' button to add a new list.  The 'List Edit' Screen will be opened.  Specify a descriptive name for the list, say 'Planets in Our Solar System'.  If there are words already defined, you can select some of them to include in the list.  Being a new installation, there is none.
  4. Click on the 'Add' button to add some words to include them in the list.  The 'Word Edit' Screen will be opened.
  5. Input the word.  Let's input 'Mercury'.  If you have a picture of the word in your picture gallery, you may click on the 'Select Image' button to link it to the word.  Input the '1st planet from the Sun' for the 'Description' field.  Leave the other as default.  Click on the 'OK' button or the 'back' button of your device to save the input and leave the screen.
  6. You are return to the 'List Edit' Screen.  Now, you can see the word 'Mercury' in the word list.
  7. Repeat the above step for other planets, such as 'Venus', 'Earth' and etc.
  8. When you have input all the words, on the 'List Edit' Screen, click on the 'OK' button to save the 'Planets in Our Solar System' list.
  9. Now, you are back to the 'All Lists' Screen.  You can now select the ''Planets in Our Solar System' list.
  10. The 'Planets in Our Solar System' is shown in the 'List View' Screen.
  11. To learn the spelling of the words, click on the 'Study' button.  The words will be shown in flash cards.  Each word and its spelling will be pronounced a number of times.
  12. Repeat the study as you like.  When you feel comfortable, you can click on the 'Test' button on the 'List View' Screen to carry out a self spelling test.
  13. Since it is the first time, you have to specify a user name.  Input any identification you like, such as initials, alias or anything.  Then you can see the main 'Test' Screen.  Each word is shown in flash card format.  You can cycle through them and input the spelling of the words.  When you have completed your input, click on the 'Done' button.
  14. The App will check your answers and shown the result to you in the 'Test Result' Screen.  Click on the 'OK' button and will return you to the 'List View' Screen.  You may like to study, test or return to the 'Main' Screen.

That's it!

Tips: you may like to select the 'Setting' button on the 'Main' Screen to change the settings.  For example, choosing another background image, changing the speed of the text-to-speech synthesizer.

Online helps are available on most of the screen.  Just click on the '?' button to invoke them.

Have fun!
