Several applications use our Spritz reading technology. Here is a small guide for implementations that can be helpful for all kinds of readers.
Instead of trying to make a struggling reader conform to traditional reading methods, Spritz offers an alternative text delivery approach that makes reading focused and easy. Experience improved focus, customizable reading settings, preset options for dyslexics, and contextual referencing between your Spritz reading mode and the conventional page layout in the background. Currently available in the HMH Marketplace for classrooms that have digital rights to select HMH reading and language programs.
