Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 24, 2010
Americans may find it hard to believe they can read a Congressional Act containing over 2000 pages and actually wind up understand it but, now they can. iScroll, one of the ten leading providers of iPhone Apps, has converted HR 3200, House Health Care Bill into a simple to follow, digest and understand iScroll App.
The iScroll App technology enables users to not only read the text of a published work, as it scolls onto their iPhone screen, but to listen to a narrative of it at the same time. Users can control the pace at which the text scrolls, the font, font size and color, layout or “skin” appearance and do so much more. According to the Center for Applied Special Technologies, the simple act of simultaneously reading and listening to information increases retention and comprehension up to 38%. Add to this the ability to link directly from the iScroll App to Google or Wikipedia for clarifications or more information, touchscreen controls as well as word and phrase search capabilities and the ability of a person to control and understand the information is enhanced even greater. Scroll founder and president Shawn Yazdani explains the advantages of the iScroll App.
“The iScroll App is a reading tool created to give the reader more control over the content and thus make reading more rewarding. Users are calling upon multiple senses which adds more value to an iScroll reading experience. You’re reading with vision, sound and touch and as such you’re getting so much more out of any form of published work… even something as complex as a two thousand plus page Congressional Health Care Act.”
Contributing the the iScroll Health Care App Act with professional voice narration is HeartheBill.org. Kathleen Keesling, founder and spokesperson describes the organization as a grass roots group of non-partisan professional voice talents who decided to contribute their skills to provide Americans with a tool to help them better understand the health care legislation.
“We’re just like most Americans, a little confused. We wanted to know the facts for ourselves so that we could form an opinion on how we felt not based on how someone else wants us to feel. That’s why we donated our time and talent to provide unbiased, straightforward professional narration of the bill. Combining our narratives with the actual text of the bill as an iScroll makes it so much easier for an average person to just understand the legislation as it is being proposed.”
The iScroll Health Care Act App is available free at either of the two groups websites.
