xSight is designed to help early readers instantly recognize many of the common words they will encounter, including words with non-phonetic spellings. Available sight words lists include the Dolch, Fry, and Magic 100 sets. In addition, up to 36 user defined lists can be entered to perfectly match your child’s curriculum.
xSight is very easy to use, but is thorough. The computer speaks the word and the student picks it out of a matrix by clicking on it. If the word is selected correctly, xSight advances to the next word after a congratulatory comment. If the word is missed, the student is asked to try again.
The “Hints” feature allows the student to recognize the correct word by narrowing the choices to a single row or column.
