This program teaches children to read by developing whole-word recognition skills. It includes 83 graded lessons with pronunciation and spelling using sounds and letters. The software measures a child's progress with 1,000 common words, adapting the results to the individual's needs. Dr. Simon Ronald, CEO of RocketReader, cites competition for attention such as computer games, the Internet and television as the cause for a lack of interest in reading, so he commissioned writers to create riveting stories targeting specific age groups for his software.
