Adapro is a free-to-use word processor geared towards individuals with a learning difficulty like dyslexia or a developmental disorder such as autism. Its adapted, seamless and configurable interface provides a simplified environment that can be relied, fostering the user's sustained attention.
Some learning difficulties such as dyslexia require attention to preventing visual confusion between letters. The use of the Sarakanda typeface greatly simplifies the task. It is also the perfect complement to the application's high-contrast modes: one specific for letters p/b/d/q as well as two other for global contrast, offered as an alternative to the classic black-on-white.
When it comes to developmental disorders like autism, uncertainty reduction is an additional goal. This is precisely the aim of virtual keypads. Consisting of groups of configurable buttons, they allow the automatic insertion of a phrase or word into the existing text.
Whatever the type of functional diversity, ADAPRO is also a useful tool for visual learning. Words can be represented through graphic symbols thanks to its vast database currently holding more than 10000 concepts.
One of the aspects adding to the complexity of any word processor is the management of document files. ADAPRO hides the file system from view so that the user only has to worry about documents, not files. Directories and filenames with extensions disappear.
Complexity derived from supporting multiple users is reduced too. Login is password-less and based on avatars. This makes it much easier for users to start using the program: just press the button with the correct avatar. The application's control panel is the only password-restricted area and access to it is through a hidden button on the login window.
The editing interface as well as virtual keypads are completely customisable. Sets of visible buttons can be defined and a number of typical profiles are provided. The list of virtual keypads available to each user can also be modified. This together with document deletion and other user management tasks can be performed using the application's control panel. To edit or create virtual keypads, a separate application is provided.
