Ratings and Reviews
Great app occasionally have issues with opening
We’ve been using this app for two years. It is great! Our child has dyslexia and this app has helped develop a love for reading! Occasionally it will not open on the iPad and the only way to get it to open is to uninstall and reinstall the app. Would be great to get this fixed.

Thank you for the wonderful service!
Thank you to everyone that has put together Learning Ally. Never apologize for anything (dyslexia/mass email) to anyone ungrateful for the thoughtful gesture. This is really helping me get through school. I only have 2 problems with it though.
1. Playback stops every 5 pages (about)
2. The readers sometimes pronounce character names differently and it’s distracting. I think if multiple people are going to read they should agree on how to pronounce everything. I’m less than 100 pages into a book I have to read for school and I’m distracted because I’ve had to listen to 4-5 different pronunciations of the same character’s name (this is an essential character too) and sometimes the reader(s) mispronounces other common words.

Need faster playback rate
I am a long time user of Learning Ally. I go back to the RFB&D days with daisy readers. I used to love using the old app because i could crank up the classic audio rate to a high speed such as 300%, which is very important for getting reading and work done efficiently. As I am dyslexic, I can’t sit down and read a book at 600+ wpm, but I prefer to listen at such high speeds. Now I feel very limited as it sounds like the top speed is only around 200%, or 2x. I can’t get my work done like I used to and it is very frustrating. Honestly I don’t really care how the app functions or looks as long as I can listen at very high speeds. I hope you can fix this. I’m sure that I am not alone as most other folks with dyslexia who I’ve talked to prefer to listen at high rates as well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
