Booktrack has created a new genre of digital storytelling entertainment. The patented technology lets anyone add a synchronized movie-style soundtrack—including music, ambient audio and sound effects—to an e-Book or other digital text content, with the audio paced to each individual’s reading speed.

Narrative Writing – Learners add music and audio to their original stories.Informative and Explanatory Writing – Learners compose essays and articles selecting suitable audio to accompany their text.Literature Study – Learners gain insight and increased understanding of the text by creating their own soundtracks for novels, stories, and plays they are reading in class.Read-Alouds – Practitioner and learner led read-alouds are enhanced through the addition of sound and music to the chapter or act being presented.
