This game helps me play Scrabble. I adore word games and this is a good game to play to learn how to place words on the grid. If you like Scrabble but can't spell, you'll LOVE this game. It's also an educational game, because you learn to see words and how they fit together. It might help with crosswords, too. Accessibility notes: Due to the nature of the game it has to be played with the mouse, but you don't have to hold down the button to drag the word, just click, move, click. Also, if you hover your mouse over a letter already on the board, it will highlight the letters in the words on the list that contain that letter! It also works just fine with the Windows accessibility tool, mousekeys. It has excellent feedback - it makes noise when you click on words, when you place words, when your word list gets to the top in timed mode, when you form a new word, if you click in the wrong place, or when you discard a word. When you hover over a menu button, it either highlights or changes colors. The one thing it does that is annoying, is in timed mode. When your word list is at the top, the words shake. This game has timed mode that is relatively fast, and untimed mode, which for me is the most fun. I wish all games had the option of an untimed mode. I do wish the game had a way to check definitions, as there are some words I have never seen before, and don't recall what they are after exiting the game.
