to accelerate and embed their learning
Fonetti is the tablet-based, interactive reading practise app, which engages children and encourages them to read more and improve their reading accuracy as they read aloud.
The Fonetti School Portal gives teachers comprehensive, real-time reading data, so you can track pupil reading progress and provide efficient, focused support to drive tangible improvements.
Children benefit from reading aloud
Fonetti uses our proprietary automatic speech recognition technology to actively listen to children as they read aloud, turning the words green in real-time when they get them right.
Works across multiple accents
The app works with all UK based accents including where English is an additional language, and whether at school or home, reading aloud with Fonetti helps children realise the power of their own voice… perfect for a confidence boost.
Not just another ebook reader
Fonetti is not just another ebook reader. It’s part of a reading revolution. It’s designed to engage a new generation of tech-savvy children who are used to real-time interactions, validation and engagement.
Books to encourage a love of reading
With an ever-growing library of content which includes fiction, non-fiction and curriculum-supporting content that’s suitable for different ages and abilities, Fonetti sparks, develops and reinforces a love of reading in both reluctant and more confident readers.
The power of reading aloud
Teachers, you know reading aloud has multiple benefits for readers, over and above reading silently or listening to narration.
When your pupils read aloud with the Fonetti app you can track their progress, even when you’ve not had 1:1 time.
Actionable reading data
Pupil reading data is available in the Fonetti School Portal – a simple-to-use, web-based management tool.
In the dashboards, you can see at a glance who has been reading, for how long, their level of accuracy and who needs extra help.
Easy book allocation
The Fonetti School Portal is also where you can allocate new books to individual pupils and/or whole class cohorts, according to their needs.
And, with Fonetti, you’re no longer restricted by the number of physical books in your classroom.
The Portal is perfect for tracking progress between classes, year groups, KS1-KS2, and focus cohorts, and ensuring your precious 1:1 time is effectively used to make a tangible, trackable difference.
Pupils use the app on tablets in the classroom and can seamlessly link to home devices for meaningful homework activity.
How Fonetti works
Voice recognition developed for reading
As children read aloud with Fonetti, the words turn green in real-time when they get them right…
If a child isn’t sure how to say a word, they simply double-tap it and Fonetti reads the word to them.
Providing subtle error feedback
If they miss a word or get it wrong, Fonetti turns it grey and crucially, it allows the child to continue their reading flow which is extremely important for young readers.
Friendly reporting to encourage and motivate
When the child completes a book, they are congratulated and given a percentage score for accuracy, which they can compare with their previous accuracy scores and reading duration for the other books they’ve read, encouraging them to want to improve and read more.
Can be used in school and home
When used in schools as a reading resource, there’s the added benefit of the pupil reading data being passed real-time into the School Portal, which teachers review and use to drive more effective interventions.
