Sight Words 01
The Sight Words reading app uses advanced voice recognition software to help kids learn to read!

This app is a very helpful tool for young kids who are learning to read.  It uses the Dolch Sight Words List and the learning process is fun and engaging.

Choose the reading level appropriate for your child.  There are Pre-K to Grade 3 levels and a special Nouns category.

In Teaching Mode the words are read aloud by the app and then children will read the words back to the app.

Use the app in Practice Mode and your child will read read words that are presented on the screen.  Miko will listen as your child reads and will let them know if their pronunciation is correct.

Because the app relies on Speech Recognition Software to hear the pronunciation this is best used in a quiet place without a lot of ambient noise.  The user must also speak clearly.

The addition of this pronunciation feature makes this app unique and very useful for Pre-K and early readers.
