Educational Features - Introducing Voice Activated Learning – V.A.L.Educational research indicates a strong link between speaking words and phrases aloud and developing early reading skills. Voice Activated Learning (VAL) is an effective way to teach language development and reading using the learner’s voice to activate and reinforce the learn-to-read process. VAL provides feedback of words read aloud into the included microphone offering helpful hints and enthusiastic encouragement.
In developing the VAL technology we are most concerned with developing confident readers. For that reason we have sharpened the technology to ensure that it recognizes when a word is said correctly by little voices with all of their developmental traits.
