A friend of mine, Iron Lesbian #2, emailed me with a request and I thought one of you smart folks might have a better solution that I did:
I got a message from a HS classmate and I’m hoping you can help (she emailed me because she knows I’m a big reader and I have paper books plus iPad and Kindle). Her daughter has dyslexia and needs to both see and hear words. Deb downloads audio books on the iPad but the daughter needs to both see and hear the words. Do you know of any iPad apps that would allow her to see the words and listen to the audio book at the same time? I tried to search the app store but came up empty.
Now, I know that audio and digital rights are separate, obviously, and not every book in the Amazon library has text-to-speech enabled, but do you know of an app that would allow a reader to see and hear the words as they are being read? Any suggestions, even if they are software and not apps, welcome, though obviously this is an app-based request. I’m very curious how different readers use software, particularly to overcome learning obstacles.
