TextHelp is a new piece of software that assists all walks of life in the world of writing, reading and wait for it!! Mathematics.
I remember when I was going to school and due to my disability they allowed me to use technology and extra time to help with my final year exams. I wish I had Texthelp back in 99.
For me, Texthelp is a fusion of Grammarly, Dragon dictation put together however where TextHelp wins the race is the fact that it has figured out how to bring maths into the digital world. The beautiful aspect of how maths came into the digital world is the fact that you can use it on devices that allows you to freehand writing your equations your workout notes and all other wonderful aspects.
Below I will via their own website I will show you all the different features that text help brings to the market and this will prove to you why they are leading the race.

We’ve made math digital
Made to help mathematics and STEM teachers and students at all levels, EquatIO® lets everyone create mathematical equations, formulas, Desmos graphs, and more on their computer or Chromebook. Input’s easy. Type, handwrite, or dictate any expression, with no tricky coding or math languages to master. There’s a huge library of ready-made expressions to save you time, from simple formulas to complex functions. And when you’re done, just add the math to your document with a click.
Making time for reading
Great for time-stretched teachers, Fluency Tutor helps students of all ages and ability levels become more avid, engaged and confident readers. What’s more, it gives teachers a clear picture of every child’s reading attainment and progress over time.
This easy-to-use app lets students record themselves reading aloud on their laptop, Chromebook or tablet, away from the stress and embarrassment of reading in a classroom environment.
How it works
Pick any content, any time. Teachers can select any web page or browse a library of over 500 pre-selected reading passages based on content or reading age. Students can also create their own passages from websites containing content they enjoy reading. Assigned passages can be edited as needed and then shared with individual students or groups via Google Drive or Google Classroom.
Students can rehearse and record their reading in a relaxed environment at school or at home, with extra help provided by a dictionary, picture dictionary and translation tools.
Teachers can listen to students’ recordings wherever and whenever it's convenient, giving quick feedback or a more in-depth assessment of reading progress. By collecting data over time, Fluency Tutor for Google helps teachers build a clear picture of each student's progress throughout the school year.
Instantly assess students’ writing levels and progress
Assessing student writing can be a very time consuming and tedious process. Reading through and evaluating dozens of multi-page documents and providing meaningful feedback during your “free” time is no one’s idea of fun.
But we’ve come up with a solution that can help - WriQ.
WriQ is an extension for Google Docs that automatically grades papers digitally. It’s faster, more accurate and consistent than traditional manual and subjective grading - giving students, parents and teachers clear visibility of writing progress over time against peers and standardised norms.
How it works
WriQ uses a powerful computer algorithm that instantly assesses each student’s writing in Google Docs, replacing the time-consuming task for teachers of assessing written passages manually. To build WriQ we’ve collected an enormous data set that has allowed us to create standardised norms for assessing writing, which we combine to create the WriQ Score.
Through these norms, WriQ will help teachers evaluate their students' written communication skills and provide meaningful feedback to improve their students' writing over time - just as Lexile levels do with reading.
This WriQ Score is directly embedded into the student’s work, giving instant feedback to help students improve their writing.
