I was always taught that you needed to learn to read before you'd be able to write, but WriteReader is changing the way we think about learning. This new Scandinavian app encourages children to learn to read by telling their own stories. For two years, Scandavian scientists studied the Write to Read method, and they have taken what they learned and made it easy for everyone to access in the exciting WriteReader App.
The WriteReader app works by allowing children to create their very own books, turning them into authors instead of just consumers. This opens up a whole new world of imagination and gives young children the encouragement they need to learn. First, the kids use the recording function to record the story they want to tell. WriteReader's speak to text feature will turn their story into words on the screen. When they see their spoken words turn to written words, it makes it easier for them to recognize written language. There is also a phonetic keyboard and an interface allowing the parent, teacher, or older sibling to write the text in conventional writing below the child’s version.
The WriteReader App just launched in the United States a few weeks ago, and already it's a huge success. If you have a child who's struggling with reading or if you simply want to give a preschooler a head start, this a great app to try. To learn more about WriteReader, you can visit their website or check them on their social. The app available to download now on iTunes
