User Review:

“Really loved this app!!! Super easy to navigate, and simple to understand and use. Used this with my class of 4 year olds and they were able to navigate it on their own after one demo. Helps make my job slightly easier :)”

“Great fun! My daughter loves it. Phonzy is really engaging and the speech recognition means that she gets relevant feedback. Great reading assistant”

* Phonzy’s Funny Voices:

Phonzy’s Funny voices is an engaging mini game that encourages kids to speak aloud. Phonzy will listen to what the kids say, and repeat it back in a funny voice. Kids can control the pitch of Phonzy’s voice to make him squeak like a mouse or RUMBLE like a dinosaur.

* Phonzy’s Funny Faces:

Kids get to take pictures with Phonzy while making funny faces and save it in the gallery!
The focus of the app is to show correct pronunciation. Phonzy can understand the important words in the sentences, but he’s still learning. To help Phonzy recognise full sentences and to improve the educational value, we collect audio recordings to build a better speech technology system. This will improve the service for all users by having more free reading apps with improved educational value.

This app is PRIVO certified. The PRIVO safe harbour seal indicates MeowTek has established COPPA compliant privacy practices to protect your child’s personal information.

Cool app for reading sentences aloud

The kids love the gallery, and the speech recognition is a cool feature. Most importantly - they are practising reading aloud. A great follow-on from Phonics with Phonzy.
