As a literacy (reading/writing) early learner or older learner with a literacy-related disability, I need to:
- Hear read aloud what I have written.
- Get help with my spelling.
As a user with a speech problem, I need to:
- Have the computer read my words aloud to another person.

Write to Speak User Stories (React/MongoDB)
View wts-user-stories
As a literacy (reading/writing) early learner or older learner with a literacy-related disability, I need to:
- Get excited about reading and writing (instead of frustrated when I have trouble).
- Hear what I have so far so I can keep my train of thought going and continue with my next idea.
- Hear if I put the wrong word in anywhere.
- Share my text with friends and family, some of whom cannot read.

Write to Speak
Write to Speak remembers and speaks your words aloud, making literacy and communication more fun and, for some, more possible.

User Feedback Notes for Creature Watcher's Creature Logger
View creature-logger-user-feedback
1. Make the back button work to take you back to the list of names you were just looking at.
(And while we are at it, make the back and forward buttons work for all "pages.")
2. Sometimes there is a (rather short) lag between entering a common name and when the list pops up. When you are
not used to it, you have no idea something like this is about to happen.
(Consider showing the instructions even before the results come back from ITIS, ideally along with a spinner or something similar.)
 
3. "Add Sighting" at the top could be confused with "Save," especially since the input form is shown when you first visit the sight.
(Consider changing it to say "New Sighting." Also consider making the new visitor click on "New Sighting" before he sees the form.)
