Although this program was originally designed for teachers to aid the learning process of their pupils, it will appeal to anyone with a liking for word puzzles.
Teacher's Pet can be used to create a variety of word puzzles - word searches, word scrambles, missing letter crosswords, and the more traditional classic crossword.
Creating any of the available puzzles is simple. Words to be used are entered into the program one at a time, at which point you select the difficulty level you require and the size of the puzzle from the drop-down lists.
The next step is to decide which puzzle type you require, and select it from another drop-down list. Mission accomplished.
If you are creating a crossword, you also need to enter the clues to go with each word - a straightforward process.
The resulting puzzle is automatically created and loaded into a browser window. Two versions are created, one displaying the answers, and one without, both ready for printing and distribution.
As they are created as HTML files they can be saved for later use, or you can simply save the word list used to create the puzzle.
