Are your ready to level the playing field for students this year? What’s available or new in reading apps for iOS devices?
Check out the reviews from OT's with Apps!
"With hundreds of new apps released everyday fortunately some of them are targeted for individuals with special needs. It has been about 2 years since the first debut of the iPad and it appears as though apps are more robust now than ever, doing more and having more features for individuals with disabilities. So it goes with reading apps, but can they compete with Kurzweil, Read & Write or ClaroRead? No, but there are more and more available to help print disabled access print. Here are some reading apps for iDevices with good quality voices(s) and highlighting of spoken works that supply reading solutions for student or adults who struggle with reading (and some help with writing):"
> Read2Go ($19.99)
> ClaroSpeak US Edition ($5.99)
> AppWriter US ($19.99)
> Voice Dream Reader ($4.99)
> Speak it! (free)
> Firefly app (free with Kurzweil web-license)
