Special Feature. Nuapp Productions

Based out of Melbourne Australia, Nuapp Productions boasts a robust and highly scalable infrastructure. Nuapp Productions thrives on innovation, and believes in shaping the industry with its cutting edge solutions. One of their directors introduced the idea for the Easy Spelling Aid app to their team during a weekly meeting. He said, "Over the weekend a family member whom is 6, came to visit. He was writing out a food list and asked how to spell pizza and french fries." He was inspired and decided to search the App Store for an App that enabled a child to use his voice to spell a word or phrase. To his surprise there was no app specifically designed for a child that offered simple speech to text recognition. The team decided to pursue the idea and from there it grew & ideas flowed.

"The Easy Spelling Aid app is so easy to use! With its high tech voice recognition software your child will be able to improve their vocabulary quickly. I like that the app offers several writing styles and background choices, which can be helpful for children with dyslexia. I appreciate that Easy Spelling Aid does not spell inappropriate words, so it really is child safe." - Academics' Choice Reviewer
