My Take

This product is not easy to install and begin using. It is not intuitive, and many parents need support from the school to get started. While it is an excellent tool for students with reading disabilities, most of my students would prefer to here an actor's voice as opposed to a computer.

How I Use It

My students use this to support their reading by listening along while following in their books (or with the on-screen text). Almost every novel or textbook is on BookShare. It is a free service, but students must qualify. Additionally, the app costs money.
