Mobile assistance

22nd June 2007 at 01:00
Partially sighted or dyslexic pupils will be able to turn to their mobile phones for help with reading.

New software has been launched so that pupils can photograph difficult words or text with their mobiles, which will then convert the words into speech.

The software, called CapturaTalk, will also help to decode difficult words for pupils who have English as a second language.
