IU13 Teacher Shares Insight on Easy Reader App

02/07/2019 By Alanna Woody

IU13 Teacher of the Visually Impaired, Greg Gerhart, recently published an article highlighting the benefits of the Dolphin Easy Reader App - a free accessible reading app designed for those with print disabilities such as dyslexia, low vision, and blindness. The article, published on PathsToLiteracy, provides an overview of the app, paired with helpful tips for using the app with students. Along with the article, Greg provided a step-by-step tutorial of the app (linked below) where users can easily access and understand all of its features.

Greg explains that PathsToLiteracy is managed by Perkins School for the Blind, and is an “excellent [resource] for educators and/or families working with visually impaired students.” He wrote the article to “help other professionals [who] might have been unfamiliar with the Dolphin Reader Application.”

In Greg’s own words, “As a teacher for the visually impaired, I have found that Dolphin Easy Reader has exceeded my expectations. It provides a lot of value at no cost … [it] may be your most cost-effective way of getting accessible digital books into the hands of students with print disabilities.”

Nice job, Greg! It’s great to share your passion with others in the field.
