This is a very easy to use program. Simply copy and paste the text that is to be read into the ReadPlease window. The default text size can be set to make it easier to read. At the press of a button the text will be read aloud using a variety of voices. Children can practise writing sentences and have them read back to them. Mistakes are then easier to spot.
