Description of App

The award-winning Grammar Girl presents Grammar Pop: A fun word game for adults and a great way for kids to learn parts of speech. Match words with parts-of-speech
to pop clouds and progress from nouns and verbs to gerunds and participles.

The sentences get longer, the parts of speech get harder, and the timer gets shorter as you pop more clouds and advance through Grammar Pop. You won’t
even know you’re learning!

Grammar Girl has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show as a grammar expert, is a regular radio guest, and has been featured in Business Week, the New York
Times, CNN, Reader’s Digest, the Washington Post, and USA Today. She has written seven books on grammar, including Grammar Girl Presents The Ultimate Writing
Guide for Students, which is used in many classrooms and has been offered through Scholastic book fairs.

Many of the game sentences use commonly confused words and model “Conventions of Standard English” requirements of the Common Core standards.

Grammar Pop does not support the iPad 1.

I was really excited when I heard about this app. Fortunately, I have a good friend who was willing to buy it and let me test it on her phone. I sure hope this becomes VO friendly someday, as the concept sounds extremely fun.

I did contact the developer also if you did not know she has a podcast under grammar girl.

From what I've been reading on Twitter (by doing a hashtag search for AppleVis), it appears as though the main reason this game is inaccessible is because it was developed using a multiplatform game engine called Game Salad. According to the developer of Grammar Pop HD (again via Twitter), she checked with the developers of Game Salad and was informed that Game Salad does not include accessibility features. Perhaps the use of third-party engines like Game Salad is the reason a lot of games that could easily be made accessible are not?

If the game engine does not include accessability at all, it is not so likely the game will be fixed. What a shame. I'm an ESL teacher and would love to use this.
