Google Play Books adds a new practice feature to help kids learn how to read
A new feature – ‘Reading practice‘ has been introduced by the tech giant Google for its Play Books Android application and Kids Space, which will help new readers independently improve their vocabulary and comprehension skills.
The new feature provides a child-friendly definition of a word if the user wants to learn more about the word. At the end of the page, they’ll have the option to practice any words they skipped or mispronounced.
The tech giant said in a blog post, “Now available in the US, the new feature will highlight the text as the user reads out loud, tracking where they are in the book and helping them to focus on the next word.”
If the user gets stuck on how to pronounce a word, they can tap it to hear what it sounds like.
The tech giant further mentioned that users can use the “Reading practice” filter in Google Play Books to narrow down their store or library searches to ebooks that offer Reading practice.
