Audisee® eBooks with Audio

Audisee eBooks with Audio combine the versatility of an eBook with audio narration and sentence highlighting that will engage even your most reluctant readers. Voice actors read the text aloud in an expressive, smooth narration, helping listeners with fluency and comprehension skills. As the audio plays, words, phrases, or sentences are highlighted one at a time for readers to easily follow along, helping them make audio and visual connections. Pages do not reflow on mobile devices or computers, allowing digital readers to have the same experience as students reading print editions.

Audisee Features and Benefits:
