During my fall semester of my senior year at school, I took a French class after taking a two year break from the language. While I was taking the class, I was frustrated at my writing comprehension – I remembered most of the words, and could easily identify words while reading, but had trouble spelling words correctly and using accents. My language skills relied heavily on sight reading instead of truly remembering the words. This is where the app concept of Ecrit Plus was created. Ecrit Plus uses the handwriting keyboard to practice writing words on your smartphone, creating a greater emphasis on writing and more advanced language comprehension compared to other language apps.
The app also accounts for errors in comprehending others’ writing. If the app does not understand the word that was written, it’ll first ask to confirm the word the app processes (for example, if the app reads an I as an L incorrectly). If you select no, it’ll then pull up the letter keyboard to type the word that you originally wrote out.
