Just in time for October Dyslexia Awareness month, ReadSpeaker TextAid will include a copy of Jovan Haye’s book Bigger Than Me, which tells of how he conquered dyslexia as a boy and continued on to study at prestigious Vanderbilt University, play with the NFL and become a highly successful entrepreneur.
When users sign in to their ReadSpeaker TextAid account, or sign up for a free trial they will find the inspiring account of how Jovan overcame his learning disability and accessed the power that pushed him forward and allowed him to triumph on and off the playing field. With the click of a button they will be able to listen to Jovan’s story, while following along with the highlighted text.
“Jovan’s story and his work in the Dyslexia community matches our own ethos of supporting struggling readers. We are delighted by the idea of a user opening our tool and having this type of content accessible and ready to be listened to. It’s exciting for us to pair our empowering tool with Jovan’s inspiring content.”
– Steve Moore, General Manager ReadSpeaker, North America
