dd, year 5, has done all the research for this chapter (has already handwritten other chapters, teacher wants a mixture of typed and handwritten) and has done rough notes. All it needs is typing up. Would it be wrong to use the app where you can speak the worse and voice recognition software writes it?
She is fine to handwrite and was all prepared to do it for the whole project but then the teacher specifically asked to have some of the project typed. So it would be between physically typing up notes slowly or speaking them into the phone.
Ask why the teacher wanted it typed? If it is because it's easier for her/him to read and mark, it doesn't matter how it's done. Otherwise, it needs to be typed as it will boost her skills (from a practical standpoint, being able to touch fast/accurately is a much more useful skill than Dragon, unfortunately, because Dragon still is not that good ... though a lifesaver if you have certain SN, I know).
