Seeing AI- APP
Seeing AI is a really clever , free app that parents can download to help their children read pieces of text at home, particularly at the moment when they are home learning and completing different pieces of work. They download it and then can scan pieces of text, images, people and handwriting and the app will then read it to them. This means you can have my PPTS or your reading questions read aloud to you which may help your child with the learning!
It is an app that was originally designed for visually impaired people but, as it reads texts aloud to you, it is great for children who perhaps might find reading hard on their own. For children in Year One, it is brilliant for helping children hear lessons and the texts from PPTS, hear instructions or simply hear the texts or questions you've been given to read orally. This would be great, for example, when completing our weekly reading comprehensions and questions based on a text. When working on the computer just zoom in on the screen or piece of text you are reading. You can either put your mobile phone over the piece of text and it will read it to you. You can even download whole documents or PDFS and it it will read all of it to you. It could be really useful to help children read words/sentences which are unfamiliar to them.
Below is a little Youtube video explaining what it is. Try and explore this app at home and use it as much as you can with your child. I particularly want you to use it for the English Comprehension Reading lessons or when reading through a lesson PPT for an afternoon lesson. Let me know how you get on on the blog!
