ClassMate Reader - Portable reading system supports K-12 students with reading difficulties
Date:10/17/2007

LONGUEUIL, QC, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ - HumanWare is proud to introduce a revolutionary device for students with reading difficulties for grades K-12. The ClassMate Reader is a tool to help students in and out of the classroom improve reading comprehension, increase reading speed and develop strong vocabulary. This tool is indispensable for students who need to refer back to previously recorded notes, tests or chapter summaries, as well as for anytime, anywhere learning.

The ClassMate Reader is a unique, portable and lightweight system about the size of a portable gaming system with a large LCD screen. Students can listen to the audio version of their textbooks and study materials, while following the highlighted text on screen. This portable system is ideal for students in any learning setting, including the classroom, resource room, library, extended learning programs and at home. The system promotes phonetic recognition and fluency and will significantly boost the support of teachers who work with students who are dyslexic.

The ClassMate Reader has several features only found on more expansive PC-based software solutions such as text-to-speech, highlighting, dictionary, text and vocal notes and audio book navigation. It can be part of the teacher's strategy to build students' independence in the learning process and enhance their confidence and self esteem. The system's design was carefully crafted to engage students and dispel the notion that assistive devices are unappealing.

Scientific studies have demonstrated the advantages of a multi-modal based reading approach (audio and visual) for dyslexic students. With the simultaneous use of text and audio, students will improve their reading comprehension which is conducive to improve academic achievement and higher test scores. The ClassMate Reader can be used as an accommodation when administering tests, eliminating the necessity for the teacher to read the exam to students.
