Fonetti® makes reading fun. Think reverse karaoke but for stories rather than song. Children simply choose a story and start reading aloud. If they get the words right, they turn green. If they get stuck, they double tap for help and go back to pronounce it correctly. When they’ve finished, they receive stars and badges as a reward. There’s no stumbling over sentences – just a library overflowing with adventures from well-known authors and favourite tales to new exciting authors making their debuts.

Fonetti is the reading assistant in your iPad. It provides interactive reading with gamification. It's the world's first Listening Bookshop and a reading revolution. Accredited by the UK Department for Education as part of the Hungry Little Minds Campaign, we’re an approved platform for children to practise their reading with the help of our unique and proprietary Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) engine.

Developed in partnership with Speech Recognition experts at the University of Edinburgh,the speech technology behind Fonetti has been designed to recognise all UK based accents, including where english is a second language. Fonetti works at the readers’ pace and is non-judgemental. It builds confidence and encourages children to read more, making it a good tool for all children with varying reading levels as well as those with SEND and Dyslexia.


Let your children read independently. Fonetti boosts confidence, literacy and develops key communication skills for life. Children learn how powerful their voice is – not just to turn pages but to make things happen. Fonetti is a safe and secure platform for you to let your children explore. It’s a patient listening ear, at any time in any place.

See your child’s progress week by week. You’ll receive updates reporting on information like reading minutes, accuracy and book choices.

Very clever.

Fonetti is amazing. Our children have been using it since their school was closed because of Corona, and I have the impression they have definitely progressed in their reading ability as a result. The app is very clever, it actually listens to their little voices and knows how well they are reading, and they can click on words they don’t know. My little ones (4&6) are already a little too obsessed with my iPad, so it’s great that there is an app that is both fun and educational. Highly recommended! And the books are free too, though I am not sure for how long.

My 4yo daughter had mastered blend phonics, and I was looking for the next step. Luckily, this app was recommended to me, and in a short space of time, my daughter has become a confident reader, with an appetite for more.

I’m very thankful to the developers of this app. Thank you.

My kids LOVE this

Downloaded this after seeing it on my newsfeed - my two boys love it and use it quite often. Hoping there's more books to come xx
