    A must for struggling readers

    Customer review by PhonicsTeacher

    I teach reading to adults with learning disabilities. My students love this device because it gives them independence. It is affordable, has all of the essential words and definitions, and is easy to use. The speaking part is a computerized voice that is easy to understand, although not perfect. It is a life saver for those who struggle with sounding out words.

    We purchased this for our son, who is an English Language Learner. He uses it when he comes across a word when reading that he does not know. Really love that if there is a word in the definition that he also does not know, he can highlight it and it will look it up.

    This product is awesome and very helpful for my third grader. If you comparison shop these, be sure that it's the speaking product because you can find Franklin Spellers that are less expensive but that is because they do not talk. This is important feature because my kids are not sure they have looked up the correct word until they hear it spoken. had the best price anywhere online so if this is the product you want, you are done shopping!
