Multimodal Read-Aloud eBooks for Language Learning

Xavier Anguera

Sinkronigo, Spain

In this show and tell description paper we present the read-aloud electronic books (eBooks) we create at Read-aloud eBooks incorporate both audio and text into a single epub3-compliant eBook, which can be read in any compatible eBook reader, where the user can listen to the audio narration while the words are highlighted as spoken. Read-aloud eBooks are a perfect companion for people with reading difficulties and for those learning a new language.
