Ivona text-to-speech technology allows website visitors not only to read, but also to listen to all the articles in the library.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
Dynaread Special Education Corporation offers an extensive online dyslexia library for free public use https://dynaread.com/service/. The Dynaread library offers articles and videos about dyslexia and related learning disabilities. The latest addition to the Dynaread library is the Ivona text-to-speech technology which allows people not only to read, but also to listen to all the articles in the online library.
Most of the entries in the library are in article format. This proved to be a problem for some of the parents and teacher of students using Dynaread. Dyslexia has a genetic link. Many parents of children who have dyslexia struggle with reading themselves. This makes it difficult for some of the them to accurately read articles. The solution? Implementing state-of-the-art Ivona iWebReader text-to-speech technology to the site. Now parents and teachers can listen to all the articles, making the Dynaread library much more accessible for those who struggle with reading.
Joy Dekkers, Dynaread COO:”It is so difficult to find quality dyslexia information on the web today. Websites offering good information on this topic are scarce. Many of the ones that do offer useful information are not always organized in an orderly and accessible fashion, making them hard to search.”
Dynaread offers science-based Learn-to-read remediation specifically designed for older struggling readers (age 7+). The Dynaread library forms an extension to the educational services Dynaread. Dynaread curriculum users kept coming back with dyslexia related questions.
Joy: “We asked ourselves why people had so many questions and we realized it was because there is so little public knowledge readily available to them. We wanted to address this issue and that is where the idea of a Dynaread Dyslexia library originated. We are still working on improving it and are adding more articles and resources every day, but there is a lot of information there already and we are very proud of it.”
The Dynaread library offers a wide range of relevant dyslexia articles, news releases, interviews, and videos. All the information is easily searchable and organized. Clear categories help parents to find information related to their specific question. In addition, if people cannot find an article to answer their question they can simply submit their question via the online Ask-a-Question form on the Dynaread web site. The question will be then be submitted to one of the Dynaread Science/Special Education team members, who will research and answer the question. Free of charge.
After searching for good text-to-speech providers, Dynaread added Ivona iWebReader text-to-speech technology to the Dynaread library. Ivona Software voices are based on BrightVoice technology and deliver a very high quality, accurate text-to-speech voice, including intonation and even emotion derived from artificial intelligence. The public can now not only find relevant articles in the Dynaread library, but also listen to each article.
