"Word Meanings" by Words Work (Robyn Dower and Jan Mackey), and ELR Software Pty Ltd is an Interactive Language Program designed to build understanding and recall of words by strengthening semantic processing. It enables repeated practice and the opportunity for reinforcement of word meanings at an error-free level. Based on the therapy manual Building Language: Word Meanings by Robyn Dower and Jan Mackey, Helios Art and Book Co, 1996, this Volume covers Picture Meanings, Spoken Word - Picture Links, and Written Word - Picture Links.

The program also incorporates features to make the activities accessible for users who need alternative computer keyboard/mouse access devices (such as IntelliKeys).
