I have a Flash program attached that makes handwriting worksheets for children. I know want to take this and make it so children can use it on an IPAD and trace the letters with their fingers or stylus instead of using paper and pencil. The program will appear similar to the one you see in the SWF, but will only include the "hollow outline" letter font you see when you open the SWF. I will be making a wider hollow outline font that will be better suited for fingers and/or stylus.
1. ALLOW TRACING
So, the program will allow the student to trace inside our larger hollow font with a finger or stylus.
2. SHOW PROGRESS
As the student moves his/her finger or stylus across the computer screen inside the hollow letter - we will see a line appear that follows where the student touches the screen.
3. MONITOR ACCURACY
Here is the important part - Since we are trying to encourage accuracy, I want to give a score of 100 if the student can trace the letter without touching the solid line. IF the line is touched THEN we subtract 5 points from the 100 possible score. So, if the student touches the outside border line 3 times they would receive a score of 85 etc.
4. INCLUDE AUDIO
I would like audio played (with me reading the diretions) when each new STEP appears at the top. I'll supply the audio files.
So, any suggestions would also be appreciated. I have all the fonts so you only need to do the coding. This doesn't have to be done in HTML5 - just anything that will work on an IPOD and Windows8 with screen interactivity. See the attached SWF to view the basic layout - although this will be modified so that printing on paper will not be necessary.
I have the the original FLA Flash file so you can view all code to help with new program.
