Testimonials

“Fonetti is such a simple concept and a brilliant use of technology to support children, make them feel more confident reading and allow parents to monitor their progress”
- Clare Balding MBE, Children's Book Author, TV Presenter
“It is really good for children who don’t really like reading in front of others, especially if they’ve got a confidence issue”
- Karena Cubillo, Primary School Teacher
“I can't say that anything is the best because everything is amazing in Fonetti”
- Ollie, Aged 9
“The fact it lights up as they go along, even that is an achievement to them because they’ve made it light up. With a standard book, you don’t have anything as rewarding as that”
- Victoria Edgar, Parent
“I love reading with Fonetti because it makes me feel brave!”
- Cole, Aged 7
“Fonetti is the best app because I can choose my own character and my own books. The thing that I like about Fonetti is that words turn green and it is the best”
- Nitya, Aged 7
“When my son Giovani first used the Fonetti app, I noticed how much more confident, and in control he was about sounding out the words. As a parent you always want to support your child the best way you can. Thank you Fonetti for adding value to our reading time.”
- Louise Power, Mum to Giovani
