Scan and Read Pro is a helpful, easy-to-use software program right out of the box. Its user-friendly toolbar contains both words and pictures, and kids can use its tools to help with reading comprehension. Scanning is easy and quick and works with any USB TWAIN-compatible scanner. The control you have over reading out loud or adjusting print to read independently also is excellent. You can select different voices for better understanding and customization, and speech is smooth. This program can give kids new confidence in their ability to access and process text from sources that may have been a challenge in the past.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
