http://hometown.aol.com/epelorient/gratuiciels.html
Ottodikt est un logiciel éducatif pour les enfants du primaire destiné à mémoriser un texte ainsi que l'orthographe des mots. Son principe de fonctionnement est très simple. L'enfant est tout d'abord invité à prendre connaissance d'un texte dans la fenêtre de droite, texte qui progressivement s'efface. Il doit ensuite, dans la fenêtre de gauche, reproduire le plus fidèlement possible ce qu'il vient de lire ; y compris en respectant la casse et la ponctuation. Chaque fois qu'un mot correct est entré, toutes les occurences de ce mot s'inscrivent en rouge dans la fenêtre de travail. En bas de cette dernière sont rappelés le nombre total de mots à trouver, le nombre de mots déjà identifiés ainsi que le nombre de points obtenus. Lorsque l'enfant est bloqué dans sa progression, il peut demander de disposer d'un mot flash, de rendre visible les consonnes du texte ou de revoir le texte. A la fin de son travail, un compte rendu lui est fourni et il peut imprimer sa saisie. Tous les réglages du programme (durée des mots flash, nombre de lectures au démarrage, tarifs en points) sont paramétrables et peuvent être individualisés selon chaque enfant. Simple d'utilisation, Ottodikt associe avec justesse le ludique et le pédagogique.
