Competition please I loved both Read2Go (Benetech) and another app on my iPhone. Finally I had wifi access and direct download of books as I wanted them. I could bookmark, navigate by page section or table of contents and it was a slick interface. As an AT specialist and blind person I could use it and teach it to sighted print disabled students. What is this app? Same company, but oy the poor quality. When I close the app, it looses my place. I can't find the bookmarking features and the entire interface is clunky.

Mispronounces words Limitations of this tech means some words are mispronounced. Eg Jurgen. Would help if it came with a correction feature. Enter the word or phrase and supply a pronunciation guide. Eg Jurgen ... Yurgen. Eg live with ... lyv with. Then it looks up each word or phrase and adapts as it goes.
