DigiTells’ “Read Along With Me” is a new software program that allows anyone to combine musical scores, magical sound effects and most importantly his or her own voice to create a read-along audio book for kids.
The software builds on the idea of read aloud storytelling by allowing parents, grandparents, etc. to record any book in their own voice and burn it to a CD or audio file so children can read along with a voice they love anytime, anywhere.
- Studies show that children learn to read better, faster by reading aloud.
- Children are better able to read when the voice reading aloud to them is one to which the child is emotionally connected.
DigiTells’ creator Giselle Uffrens lost her mom to cancer. One of her mom’s favorite activities was reading aloud to her grandchildren. Her passing is what inspired Uffrens to create “Read-Along With Me” — to offer families a way to preserve a part of themselves that will live on for generations. With DigiTells’ “Read Along With Me,” the magical memories of read-aloud story time with a loved one can be enjoyed for generations yet to come.
