The Sounding Out Machine is an Assistive Reading App for iOS. It helps children focus on challenging words in their texts, and then models how to sound out those words. Children use the Word Window to isolate and enlarge a difficult word. Then he Sounding Out Machine models how to chunk the word into syllables and use phonics skills to blend the phonemes together and sound out the word. Children can use their own digital word card to practice and become independent.
