Ratings and Reviews
Great for regular practice
The speech recognition in this app tracks along pretty well for my 5 year old. I really like that the app plays back the sentence after my son reads it. He will sometimes zoom through a sentence, mis-reading words and the 'replay' helps him to slow down and revisit the words he didn't know. Good for regular reading practice... the game is encouraging and there are a good variety of short stories.
Great for 6 & 8 year old!
My 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter had a fun time reading stories out loud with Reading Racer this past weekend. They especially loved playing the app in "Race" mode. I was impressed that the speech recognition software worked as well as it did. My daughter also enjoyed helping her brother while he was reading the stories.
Does not hear me
I tried the game myself first, in a quiet space, with volume turned full blast on the iPad. It could not hear anything I was saying....consistently told me I was wrong. If you watch carefully, you even see it happening on the video on the app page.
