Bookbot’s purpose is to make reading fun and engaging for struggling readers and people with dyslexia.

It achieves this through sophisticated software which “follows along” with the child as they read out loud, highlighting incorrectly pronounced words and audibly stating the proper pronunciation when mistakes are made.

Bookbot exists for the children who need a little extra practice but don’t want to feel like a burden, or who feel a bit shy and want to practice alone. It brings control, privacy and ease to a process that brings discomfort to so many.
Drawing attention to words when needed

Incorrectly pronounced words are highlighted for instant focus.

Easy on the eyes

Sans-serif fonts make the reading experience as easy as possible.

The Bookbot story

My name is Davina, and I’m a mother. I’m also a passionate writer, a ravenous bookworm and a big part of Bookbot. Now, I might be biased because I’m his mum, but my son Forester happens to be one of my favourite people on Earth. I think he has a big bright future ahead of him, and I can’t wait to see what he does with his life.

But even I can admit that, although he’s perfect to me, he faces challenges that others will never have to.
To be more specific, Forester has dyslexia. It’s a disorder (or series of disorders) that affect his ability to read.

For a long time, I tried reading with him and helping him myself. But life isn’t always that simple. Eventually, I admitted that I needed a little help as well if we were going to work through this thing together.

So, I immersed myself in learning all about reading difficulties. I did courses, spoke with teachers, tutors and parents, and got my elbows in the mud trying to understand all the ins and outs of what Forester’s experience was like.

After hours, days, weeks of digging, I came to understand how he learns and what he struggles with. It’s become a lot easier to help him with his school work and communicate with his teacher.

But I still want to do more for Forester and other people with learning difficulties.

And that’s why I’ve been so involved with Bookbot, a sophisticated tool that gives struggling readers the chance to work through problem areas on their own terms, in their own way and at their own pace.
We’re thrilled to have you on board, and I promise… this is only the beginning.

Frequently asked questions

Which devices will Bookbot work on?

Upon release, Bookbot will be compatible with iPads, iPhones, Android phones and Android tablets. In the future, Bookbot will be released for Windows, Mac and Chromebooks as well.

What can people expect to pay for the app?

There are continual running costs, such as book licensing, book preparation, voice recognition services and app maintenance.

With these running costs in mind, we estimate a monthly subscription price of around $10 USD.

Why not have the app just work with websites?

While Bookbot is helpful for struggling learners of all ages, the main focus of the app is to help readers from the ages of 5 to 15. This requires a bit of extra consideration – children's books and decodable readers specifically.

Another issue is the books themselves. The books need to be processed and tested to ensure that they work correctly with the speech system.

And finally, having control over the books allows the algorithm to select the appropriate books for the child’s reading level. This is very important, as text that is too simple will not stimulate progress and text that is too difficult might frustrate or discourage the user.

Can I help?

You certainly can! There are a variety of ways that anyone can help Bookbot. Here are a few of our ideas, but if you’ve got ideas of your own, please contact us on Facebook Messenger:

If you have social media marketing experience, you can help with writing posts and driving engagement. Please get in touch with us on Facebook Messenger if that interests you.

If you are a tutor or teacher in Melbourne and would like to help with testing, you can contact us on Facebook Messenger.

If you want to help promote Bookbot, you can share our promotional videos and Facebook pages.

Can multiple children use the same app?

Yes! You will be able to have multiple profiles within a single subscription.

Could Bookbot discourage children from reading if they find it too difficult?

We’ve thought about this as well. Our solution is to select books that are at just the right level for the child using the app. Through algorithmic correction, books will be easy enough to help with confidence, while also hard enough to stimulate growth.

Is your product user-friendly for young students with dyslexia and other learning issues?

Bookbot is specifically designed for dyslexic readers from the bottom up. Everything from design to font to brightness has been optimised to give users with learning difficulties the ideal experience.

Will it work for children with foreign accents (or who are learning English)?

Yes it will.

What reading level does this start at?

We will start with beginning reading levels all the way to accomplished readers.

Will it be available in the USA?

It certainly will. In fact, most of our interest comes from the USA.

Will it need to learn your child’s voice?

No. It will work with any voice from the start.

Can I add my child’s school books to this?

At the moment, we have to prepare each book for the voice recognition system. We're first going to focus on decodable reading books that are designed for new readers.
