Our Lexidox is an electronic writing aid tablet specially designed for children with learning disabilities. Developed in Quebec, the product includes the technological functions of handwriting recognition, speech synthesis, phonetic and spelling prediction as well as syntactic correction.

For children with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysphasia, dysorthography, etc.
Through Haylem Technologies
Size: 19 x 12 cm. Bilingual (French, English). 549 $

The young founder of the company Haylem Technologies, Francis Haynes, was inspired by his brother to create this tool. “He has dysorthography and has always seen me as a role model. He wondered why I was doing well in school and not him. Regularly, he questioned his cognitive abilities since he was a common failure in school. A member of the Order of Engineers of Quebec, he now wants to use the skills he acquired at school to put them at the service of young people who, like his brother, have learning disabilities.

Characteristics :
- 40,000 phonetic correlations: the Lexidox has a complete phonetic environment to support young people, helping them to understand the relationship between sound and writing.
- Phonetic and orthographic prediction.
- Text-to-speech: up to 19 different voices via Acapela Group's text-to-speech engine.
- Syntactic correction: it does not only offer suggestions on the error, but it explains to the young person the rule which accompanies it.
- Dictionary: The Book of Words offers definitions, synonyms, images and English translations.
- Handwritten recognition: with the digitizing pencil, it is possible to work on motor movement and learning to write.

Specialists and other specialists working with students with learning disabilities can also benefit from a rental program proposed by the company.
