  4. very thorough & helpful.  I don't think many kids would like to hear their books read my SIRI or similar, but you address this nicely.  my kids have been spoiled by audible.com.  the writing & notetaking apps are especially helpful.  thank you!

  5. I will share this on our facebook page, Thanks.

  6. Try out the iOS Voice Dream Reader app with a Free membership to bookshare.org for those kids in K-12th grade who have a qualifying Learning Disability and a 504 or IEP plan!  My son loves it!

  7. Excellent thanks
