NaturalReader can help overcome learning difficulties

How does NaturalReader help people with learning difficulties?

As a dyslexic, you find both spelling and reading are often challenges. NaturalReader plays to your strengths – hearing rather than reading. By hearing the material and simultaneously seeing the words highlighted on your screen, your reading and comprehension improve.
NaturalReader can also read back as you type - by word or by sentence. This delivers critical real-time feedback to help you improve your coordination of sounds and letter combinations.

Hear It, See It, Read It:

NaturalReader turns written text into natural sounding human speech. You'll find your comprehension and reading will improve as you hear the material, simultaneously see the words highlighted on your screen, and read along. This plays to your strengths to help you boost your performance. NaturalReader can read electronic textbooks, PDF files, Microsoft WORD documents, and web pages.

Type It, Hear It, Check It:

Spelling is often a challenge for people with dyslexia. NaturalReader can read text as you type, by word or by sentence. This delivers critical real-time feedback to help you improve your coordination of sounds and letter combinations.
