Fonetti® makes reading fun. Think reverse karaoke but for stories rather than song. Children simply choose a story and start reading aloud. If they get the words right, they turn green. If they get stuck, they double tap for help and go back to pronounce it correctly. When they’ve finished, they receive stars and badges as a reward. There’s no stumbling over sentences – just a library overflowing with adventures from well-known authors and favourite tales to new exciting authors making their debuts.
Fonetti is the reading assistant in your tablet. It provides interactive reading with gamification. It's the world's first Listening Bookshop and a reading revolution. Accredited by the UK Department for Education as part of the Hungry Little Minds Campaign, we’re an approved platform for children to practise their reading with the help of our unique and proprietary Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) engine.
Developed in partnership with Speech Recognition experts at the University of Edinburgh,the speech technology behind Fonetti has been designed to recognise all UK based accents, including where english is a second language. Fonetti works at the readers’ pace and is non-judgemental. It builds confidence and encourages children to read more, making it a good tool for all children with varying reading levels as well as those with SEND and Dyslexia.
