01 Rivers-Listen and Read

Each page of text has 4 sentences. As the student clicks on each sentence in turn it is spoken and then added to the document. There is a Repeat Speech button to hear it again and a delete button to remove an entire line in case something was selected in error.

The final text can be printed (and it works well in black and white as well as colour). Another option is to use this as an information source as one might use a web page. In this case the users can browse through the pages and copy just the sentences they need.
