"In summary, we found a great many strengths in the ReadOn software product.
As an assistive tool, we concluded that it has a great potential to provide struggling readers
and writers with a motivating way to access and create texts in both home and school settings."
"Students can choose to upload texts to be read aloud, such as e-mails, news accounts, magazine
articles, and textbooks, and can select personalized settings to optimize the reading experience.
In the writing mode, ReadOn gives students the all too rare opportunity to hear their own composition
read aloud. This capability can serve as a proofreading aid and would certainly serve to make writing
more pleasurable for the struggling writer. ReadOn also provides the capacity for textual and pictorial
help with unknown vocabulary."
