Reading Assistant builds your reading fluency (how easily & fast you can read), your vocabulary and how well you understand what you read.
Did you know that reading aloud also helps you remember what you read?
“Producing a word aloud during study, relative to simply reading a word silently, improves explicit memory.” Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition May, 2010, “The production effect: delineation of a phenomenon” Colin MacLeod, Nigel Gopie, Kathleen Hourihan, Karen Neary, and Jason Ozubko.
And, you learn to speak the words more clearly, with your online reading aloud coach.
The advanced speech recognition software tells you how you should pronounce the word, corrects you where you need help and even has records your speech so that you can listen to yourself speak compared to the ideal.
Your Reading Assistant Online Reading Aloud program builds the essential skills for adults wishing to improve their reading, needing to be able to understand more of what they have to read for their job or profession, or planning further study requiring them to read a lot of material.
This online interactive program gives you intensive reading aloud practice and uses speech verification technology to act as a coach, providing our one-on-one guided support while you read aloud.
Reading Assistant is the only reading program that models the correct reading of a passage as you read it out loud. The voice recognition-powered "tutor” intervenes when you falter and automatically scores your oral reading. You can see your own progress and monitor your improvement on more than 300 reading selections.
It is well known that students benefit from extra reading aloud practice, especially when it is combined with immediate feedback and support from a coach.
