Reading & Listening

The Axis 360 YouTube page has several playlists on reading and listening based on your device type: https://www.youtube.com/user/Axis360Support/playlists

It’s important to mention that on all devices, readers can bookmark, highlight, take notes, define words, and Google topics.

A new feature is the ability to have the ebook text read aloud. The reader/listener will have several different voices to choose from, and they can change the speed, and whether to highlight the text as it is being read. This has special value for readers who have trouble focusing for a variety of reasons. It also helps develop comprehension and word recognition skills. How often have we seen a word and not known how to say it till we heard it in conversation?
