Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

OgStar Reading Explore reviews

"Orton-Gillingham techniques work well for ELL [students] because they fill in the gaps that they may have missed out on."

- -Dr. Gloria Arce-Vargas, IMSE Journal, 2015

It’s a great supplement to OG instruction at school or private tutor

- LaVon Terry Wilson

It's the best!!! for reaching those students you thought were unreachable.

vBookz reviews

Works well It does sound a bit digital but once I settle in to listening I understand it very well. Really love the dialects font! The app does need a bookmark feature.

Amazing Technology! For an application on a smart phone, this is probably the most useful app ever had! I use this application to listen to textbooks. It works with dropbox so that I can print sections of my text books, open them from Dropbox using vBookz, & listen! One major benefit is that it stores the files locally on the phone storage, and does not require an Internet connection to read the files aloud. This enables listening on airplanes that do not have Wi-Fi connections (or saves paying the fee for access). This app does say words "Incorrectly", but usually they are not so much incorrect as they are out of context. (BI - abbreviation for business intelligence is said bi, like bi-lateral.) If the author used B.I., it may have read it correctly. This should not prevent anybody who wants to have books read aloud to them (while exercising, driving, or resting your eyes from hours of reading) from getting this, because it truly is an amazing application!

Excellently working Excellently working but Shuffling while reading some of the books, Not reads in the order of content is displayed, for example, it reads directly the the second para without reading first. Suggestion:- before buying these apps read your pdf book through speak option in iBooks or free apps, if it meets your requirement then purchase these vbz & vdr apps. These apps are exactly works same like iBook and not works like acrobat pdf reader readout loud feature, only difference observed between iBooks and these apps(vbz & vdr), ibooks reads out loud only upon selection. Vbz & vdr apps reads out loud whole book with or without selection.
