What's new in Canvastic
The new Audio Tool adds a lot of new opportunities. Students can do live recording so easily. Just click, record the sound and click OK.
Songs from iTunes can also be added. Other downloaded audio can be inserted just like images. It all creates a more rich multi-media experience but with Canvastic's signature ease of use.
Canvastic's new spell checking feature is better than any other for our students. First, you can make it available or not depending upon who is using the program. Second when writing or editing the entry box takes over most of the screen helping the students focus on the task. The words found by the spell checker are shown in full context. Finally, the Learn button can be turned off! No more corrupted dictionaries!
Every color can be adjusted using transparency sliders for some fantastic art effects. The sliders are easy to use and adjust the line, the fill and the text colors.
The paint brush now has four shapes to make graphics more detailed. As usual the choices are limited to an appropriate level to keep students on task and selection is intuitive, just click the shape next to the line size choice.
