Free Library of 72 of the World’s Great Classics, Formatted for Easy Reading:

Read Silently, Just Ahead

Of Computer Assisted Voice

  1. This Library is for ALL students K-12, and all adults, regardless of reading ability.

  2. No word has been changed from the original text, just the formatting and pausing after punctuation marks. Voice assistance is optional.

  3. Everyone can enjoy these works and grow in their reading ability. Learn How.

  4. Every student in a class or school (or at home) can use this program simultaneously with individually tailored settings.

  5. Any novel, or textbook, or Internet article (or file of concatenated articles) can be formatted this way. Learn How.

  6. “PR” stands for Proportional Reading which is the name of the formatting software and related teaching of how to read.

  7. The necessary voice and text playback software is already on all iOS and Mac devices for free. However, this must be set up, and operational directions learned; this is a lifetime skill. Learn How. A keyboard (either wired or Bluetooth) is used to control the Voice and Text.

  8. Students generally progress from PR3 to PR4 to PR5 formatting as they learn how to improve their reading. In this process they move from reading out loud before the sound, to reading silently with the sound, to reading silently ahead of the sound. The speed of the voice is adjustable. Students can Pause/Continue at any point, as well as look up the definition of a word, or repeat the selection of text. Presentation stops automatically and instantly as soon as the student’s attention wanders, or he or she falls asleep.

  9. PR2 means formatted by a Phrase at a time. This format is rarely presented, and primarily used initially to overcome some bad habits which are easily corrected.

  10. PR3 means formatted by a Punctuation Interval at a time.

  11. PR4 means formatted by a Sentence at a time.

  12. PR5 means formatted by a Paragraph at a time.

  13. The letters after PR3, PR4 or PR5 refer technically to the pausing after comma, semicolon, period and paragraph. The final number indicates the current font size of the text. Learn More.

  14. PR4 format is ideal for the small screen of the iPhone and iPod Touch; PR5 format is ideal for the larger screen of the iPad, Mac Laptops and Mac desktops.

  15. Any book can be downloaded by you or your teacher from this page to your Dropbox account and read offline, with voice assistance, without needing Internet or Wi-Fi. Learn How.

  16. Text on iPhone or iPod Touch can be presented on a living room TV screen at 16 to 25 times the size. This means text can be saved by paragraph at 10 point font and then played back by paragraph with easy visibility, using either of these devices and a cable or Apple TV.

  17. If you just want to read text silently, without voice assistance, any smartphone or computer is fine to use with these books.
