Short Word screen dump showing
The Word Area Simple words in the C-V-C (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) pattern are displayed at the
top. Pressing a letter 'advances' that letter to create a new word. For example, 'bed' can
be changed into 'fed','bid' or 'bet' depending on which of the three letters
is pressed. If no new word can be created by changing the selected letter a message is displayed.
- The Definition Area Simple definitions for the currently displayed word are show here. Young
readers may need a more experienced reader to help them read the definitions.
- Next Clicking the Next button caused the rightmost letter to advance.
If it advances past 'z' without creating a new word the middle letter is advanced.
In turn, if the middle letter advances past 'u' without creating a new word the
leftmost letter is advanced.
- Random Clicking the Random button causes a 'one-armed-bandit' style display while a
new random word is created.
