Bookbot is an app that uses speech recognition to help children of all abilities and reading levels to learn how to read and improve their reading skills.


The app’s real-time, on-device voice recognition technology listens to the child read out loud and provides feedback through pronunciation modelling. It also produces reports that allow teachers to monitor the progress and improvement of the child’s reading level.
