Read Aloud guides young readers, validating their efforts and reinforcing their confidence.
The text is segmented into short sentences; the current sentence is highlighted. While the child reads, words are colored, one by one.
A dynamic help system assists the kids, making sure they don't lose the thread, so to speak. A finger point to the next word to read; if the word is not read correctly, the finger starts moving to catch the kid's attention. If the word is not recognized, it's highlighted. Finally, after 3 mistakes, the word is displayed at the center of the screen, hyphenated for clarity.
Hyphenation can be displayed also with a simple tap on the word to read.
If the word is still too difficult, you can tap a button to listen to its pronunciation and go on.
All tales included in Read Aloud are original.
Do you know the tale of the poor farmer? And what about the hedgehog with the reflective jacket? They are newly composed tales to keep kids entertained and interested in reading.
Every tale is accompanied by illustrations and sound effects, gradually disclosing as the child reads aloud: there's a surprise in every page.
New tales will be added periodically.
