Reading Machine, a new app recently featured by Apple, raises the bar for beginning readers. This software supports the reading process by demonstrating how the letters and sounds in a word go together, thus reducing reader irritation. When a child encounters a word that he cannot read and is unfamiliar with, he enters it into the reading machine. The app sounds out the word so that the youngster can try to decipher it by fusing the sounds together to form the word. The app has a dictionary with over 5,000 terms. He can then express the entire word when “asking” for more assistance. Children may find it challenging to learn to read, particularly if they have dyslexia or another learning disability. The saddest aspect is that your child might not receive the support they require from books alone. Among other difficulties, books may utilize strange sentence structures or fail to describe complex words. Thankfully, Reading Machine can assist with these problems. Reading Machine provides text-to-speech, phonics support, and a superb dictionary of widely used English terms to assist young readers who are having trouble understanding what they are reading. Over 125 books for beginner readers are available on the app. Additionally, it gives you reading lists based on your child’s interests and proficiency. On the Apple App Store, Reading Machine is available for no cost.

Reading Machine reviews

The perfect app! I purchased the app for my 23 year old autistic son who has never been able to read more than a few simple words. He loves the app and uses it every day to de-code words. He is fascinated with "text to speech" and this app has provided a key link in developing word recognition. I would highly recommend this app, particularly for adults with developmental disabilities.

Great for students!! This app is awesome for assisting students become independent readers. Initially I could not get the audio to work but I contacted the developer to help me figure out the issue. Seems the iPad has a glitch which MUTES some apps, even though the MUTE option is not selected. The way the app breaks down the words clearly showing the blends and digraphs enables students to learn not only the word but the sounds as well. The ability to download additional book titles makes it so that nearly every word my students come across is pronounced correctly in a realistic voice. Great filter for words which should not be said out loud!!! Kudos!!

Makes reading fun! My 6 year old had decided that reading was "boring" and we were struggling with getting her to complete her daily reading assignments. That is until we found the Reading Machine. This application allows our daughter to read on her own and independently type words into the application when she is struggling and learn how to sound it out. It has even helped her with spelling, as she likes to play with the App typing in words. If they don't sound out correctly she knows she has to try and spell the word a different way. Since using the Reading Machine our daughter is excited about reading again and has hooked her 4 year old brother too! Thanks for this wonderful tool!!
