Pass me the earbud, mate. Leslie (dyslexic) shows her friend NayNay how to use the Learning Ally Audio app for listening to audiobooks on her iPad. The app is free to Learning Ally members at the iTunes Store. These are real kids, not models, by the way. Real photographer too (thank you, Rick Reinhard).
Leslie and Nay Nay on photo shoot for Learning Ally. Leslie using iPad app enabling kids with dyslexia to enjoy reading. Thanks to Learning Ally mom Lisa H. in Maryland for hosting the shoot.
This just in from the great state of Texas — news from Learning Ally staffer and proud mom, Mary Alexander:
“Here are pics of my son Cooper taking a digital book test based on Learning Ally’s accessible audiobook version of “The Hunger Games” — which he is listening to on an iPad with our Audio app. The event was held today during a Technology Olympics for hundreds of blind and visually impaired students in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Learning Ally has been used as the digital book provider for this event since 2005.
“The young lady is Chelby Farley of Eagle Mountain / Saginaw school district in Fort Worth. She and Cooper were the two First Place winners in our digital book contest.”
Learning Ally’s popular audiobook player for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch was already user-friendly; now it’s undergone a major upgrade enabling direct downloading of content to your favorite device over a wireless network. Read the national press release here.
