See and Say

Nuance The tried and true technique of teaching reading and writing via the letters, syllables and then words works for most, but not all early learners. Nuance Speak & See provides a shortcut for those with disabilities by having the computer speak a passage to students as it is displayed on-screen. Based on Dragon’s NaturallySpeaking software, Speak & See shows kids the relationship between the written and spoken language with an advanced text-to-speech engine. Kids can have the program read them material or listen to them dictate anything from an email to an essay. The software comes with a scree-magnifier that can make anything six-times bigger and easier to read. Speak & See sells for $250.
