For children and e-learning
As children play, you could use TTS to read out their favorite book, or a school reading, or use it for more intentional times. With TTS, words are highlighted (think Karaoke) so your child could read and listen at the same time. This makes for greater retention as two senses are stimulated.
The web pages you allow your children to read come alive.
