• 0 Black History Audiobook Rebuilt

    Black History Audiobook mobile app includes informative stories about famous Black history people. There's nothing like seeing a fresh face on an old friend. We introduced Black History Audio Book for Android in 2016, Book 2 in 2016, and Book 3 in 2018. In 2018 we injected the iPhone-iPad version into the App Store essentially combining all 3 Android editions (30 chapters) into one book. As time marches on, we are all challenged to take the past and bring it up to the present. We have rebuilt Black History Audio Book (Android) from the ground up into a similar design that we used for the iOS version. The new Android version 2.0 now has all 30 chapters just like the iPhone-iPad version. Android version 1 along with its children used the B4A (Basic for Android) SDK (software development kit). For version 2 for Android, launched on July 15, 2020, we developed the app in Android Studio. Here are the current apps, side-by-side. Note that to see and open (touch) the list of all chapters, Android uses an arrow at the top right, and iOS uses the lower right circle surrounding 4 horizontal lines (commonly called a hamburger menu). Watch the video below to learn more about the Black History Audiobook. Here are just a few straight talk technical notes about file size on your phone. The original 2016 Android version of Black History Audio Book was 45 megabytes. Version 2 is only 15 megabytes. The good news is we've kept the high quality audio you expect for crystal clear speech inside of 30 interesting stories! On September 1, 2020, we'll retire Android Book 2 and Book 3 since they are no longer needed.

  • 0 How Audio Book Apps Help Students Become Better Readers

    This is a guest article written by Russell Emmental... Children that struggle with poor reading skills may suffer low self-esteem in school, and fall drastically behind. Those that are not proficient readers by the 3rd grade are 4 times as likely to drop out of high school. It’s crucial for parents to consider options that can help their kids improve their reading ability before it's too late. Audio books are proven to enhance reading skills. They have benefited learning-disabled students, second-language learners, non-readers and those who are struggling with poor reading abilities. With the onset of tablets and smartphones, more audio book apps have been developed to make reading easier for those behind. Minimizes Working-Memory Deficit For students who have problems with reading, their brain mainly focuses on sounding out the words. This makes the learner not concentrate on memorizing and understanding what they are reading. Since audio books don't require much decoding, the reader can concentrate on understanding whatever information they hear. You might notice improved response to questions and confidence once your kid gets accustomed to audio books. The Simplicity of Reading While Doing Other Activities Whether you are in a car, at home or just walking, it's possible to listen to audio books from your phone or tablet. With the right app, all you need is to download your favorite book and play it from your tablet or phone. Parents can also help their children become better readers by listening to audio books together. This can happen when winding your kid down for bedtime or even when you are in the kitchen cooking. It's a better way to bond and motivate your kid to become a better reader. Improves a Student's Exposure For students who are not very good at normal reading, being allowed to use audio books can help them open up. This gives every student a fair chance to use their most preferred reading method to compete with their peers. It will also help to expand the student's knowledge base because they will learn more vocabulary through audio book apps. Promotes Educational Independence Students perform better when they are given the opportunity to use their most preferred form of learning. For instance, it might be easy for a child to understand what is verbalized to them than what they read directly from printed books. Audio book apps give students the independence to choose the reading method that they can understand better. This makes every child feel included and appreciated. It can be a way to improve peer relationships and self-confidence. Fosters a Natural Love for Stories One of the best ways to make your child enjoy literature is through audio books. The use of audio book apps diversifies your kid's knowledge base, which can make them enjoy listening to stories. With time, they will be able to get lost in good stories and books like other students. They are likely to become motivated to read on their own if they enjoy the story. Reduces the Anxiety of Decoding Printed Word The reason most students fail to concentrate or understand things they learn in class is due to the pressure that comes with reading. Since audio books enable the student to concentrate on the meaning rather than the sounding of words, the learner can easily be immersed in what they are reading. It also helps struggling readers avoid the lag time of decoding information. Final Thoughts The main aim of reading is to understand written information. Therefore, audio book apps minimize the hurdles that are presented by printed books. They eliminate anxiety and the difficulties of decoding.
