What Is Dictation4Kids and What It Does?
I’m not a developer: you might consider my app as a home-made toy, which I set up by the “app inventor 2” tools to follow my 4-year-old son’s propensity for learning about written language. The original project consisted of two parts: 1) the words database, where parents have to create words lists as they like (these lists contain the words the kid will play with during the game); after you typed a word, read it aloud while recording a short sound file; you can also group words togheter into some collections (e.g. animals names or fruits), so that you’ll be able either to offer your kid a themed game or to build a learning pathway based on specific orthographic rules; 2) the real game with the keyboard; your kid listens to a database word and tries to type it using either uppercase or lowercase letters; he can listen to it whenever he wants and he can also check how the word should be written in order to correct his mistakes. The ways to correct are easy to understand: wrong letters can be overwritten, otherwise you can press on a letter of the word you’re typing before choosing a key in the keyboard so that it will be erased togheter with all the letters that come after it. At the end the kid has to press the yellow key with the arrow to enjoy his reward… Starting with 1.4.0. version, I added a hangman-like game without any image evoking such sad thoughts as gallows may do: your kid will try to guess a word coming from your custom database, the same you set up for dictation exercises. Since 1.4.3 version there is a game aimed at improving reading skills: your kid has to recognise the pronounced word among six database items. Try and ask a beloved relative or the kid himself to pronounce some word! The app interface is translated into English and Italian, but of course the game can be used by any kid who speaks a language based on the Latin alphabet (accented and special characters are not allowed). N.B. Please.

Step By Step Guide To Install & Use Dictation4Kids For PC
Using an Android App on Windows Computer is kind of tricky and you need to follow some extra steps. It is because the Windows computer (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows) can only run the EXE file as an application. Since Android apps (https://www.android.com) come with a .apk file that your computer can not run or execute. In this case, we will use some third party software like Bluestacks or Nox Player (software or app or games emulator) who can emulate your Dictation4Kids app on PC and you are ready to start using this app from your computer.
It is worth mentioning that, Dictation4Kids is a popular app and will run smoothly in your Windows 10/8/7 and even in XP or the vintage Windows Vista.
Just need to follow the steps mentioned below to make it work perfectly. Follow on…
Step 01: Install BlueStacks or Nox Player on your computer. If you haven’t yet downloaded and installed those, please go to this link https://www.bluestacks.com/ (for BlueStacks Official Download) or https://www.bignox.com/ (for Nox Player Official Download).
Step 02: Once BlueStacks is installed on your PC, open it from your Start menu or icon located at Desktop. It will take some time to initiate all the programs for the very first time.
Step 03: When BlueStacks is fully opened; just click on the “Google Play Store” icon which you will find on the home screen of BlueStacks.
Step 04: On the Play Store, find the “Search Box” at the top and type Dictation4Kids and hit enter on your keyboard. Pick the first app and then click on “Install”. If you don’t find your app on Google Play Store, then use this link – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=appinventor.ai_gabpiga.Dictation4Kids and download the APK and once downloaded; drag that APK file on the home screen of BlueStacks and it will be installed automatically.
Step 05: After the app installation is complete; open Dictation4Kids from the “installed apps” section of Bluestacks. Or, you will find your newly installed app on the home screen of BlueStacks.
