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

Reading Rockets reviews

RocketReader speed reading software has a simple colorful interface that makes it easy for users of any age to sharpen their speed reading skills. It has basic exercises and tests and enough included reading material to keep you engaged as you learn. However, it lacks a few options in regards to exercises, text customization, connectivity and customer support. The software is intuitive with clear labels and colorful icons. It has a good variety of exercises and tests and even a vocabulary trainer. We were happy to see a section dedicated to building vocabulary but were disappointed that instead of standard words, there was only a small amount of obscure phrases and axioms with odd multiple choice options. We did not find the vocabulary option helpful at all.

- "Jessica Richards

Reading Rocket can determine the reading age of any individual, and has the features needed to remedy a lack of reading skill. Reading Rocket is the rescue vehicle from illiteracy to literacy.

Special Words / Special iApps reviews

Special Words is excellent for children with additional needs and children who learn to read using sight vocabulary and not phonics.

- Gina Robinson, Teacher

Special Words is an absolute gem of an app and I am so proud to be using it.

- Laura Corkin, Teaching Assistant

Special iApps are very good, as your advertising says, uncluttered pages, clear text etc. I liked the Special Stories app which gives students the opportunity to personalise their writing. Well done!

- Ro O'Dwyer, Education Consultant at Down Syndrome Victoria
