Fun Way to Learn Phonics

Phonics Keyboard

Who’s it for?

Designed for children of all ages to help them associate letters with their phonetic sounds.

What do they do?

Phonics Keyboard is a keyboard extension and game for the iPad and iPhone. Each key has a familiar animal associated with each letter. Every time a key is pressed, the letter being typed it is read aloud, sounding its name and its phonetic sound.



Easily identify the letter you want to use and learn the associated sounds

Fun, colourful images help your little typist to quickly identify the letter they want to use. Each key is more distinct to simplify the search for keyboard keys. Hear letters read by name (ay, bee, cee) and by phonetics sound (ah, buh, cuh). This helps to establish a link between letters and their sounds and helps to advance reading and spelling skills.

Customisable Voices

Choose between many different voices

Cheerful British and American children’s voices are available for free in the phonics keyboard settings.

Varying difficulty

Choose the right level for your child

As your child becomes more confident, you can adjust your settings to remove the images, or change the auditory support.
