Much of the Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Australia is undertaken by Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s). There are approximately 5,000 RTO’s that currently exist within Australia providing training across a wide range of areas including traditional trades, advanced technical training and professional studies, as well as pre-employment and basic skills programs. TAFE’s also operate in this sector.
Many people within the VET area experience reading difficulties, including dyslexia. Also, those whose first language is not English often struggle with VET courses.
Training organisations around the globe are using the ReaderPen 2 to help bridge this gap. Allowing students to gain the support they need both inside and outside of the teaching environment. Users of our text-to-speech aids are finding a new level of reading independence that they never had; and they’re building confidence in themselves. Those learning English are finding it simpler to grasp the language by hearing the words at the same time as reading them. Research shows that seeing and hearing the words together improves comprehension by 76%.
