How I Use It
I have used this app with students who struggle to read grade level text. By listening to the text, they are able to access websites and other materials they can understand and work independently. This is a great boost in working independently for those students who often need someone to read to them.
My Take
I think this app works well for students who need support with reading. It is not as comprehensive or well-designed as some of the more expensive text-to-speech options, but is simple to use.
