Reading is one of the basic skills necessary for human growth, but some parents believe that excessive use of children's apps on mobile devices may hinder the development of this basic skill. Of course, there is no shortage of excellent children's reading apps on the market, but the Area 120 naturally has some unique weapons that make Google Rivet stand out.
In particular, the app uses speech recognition technology and some artificial intelligence to help children learn reading skills. Because the younger generation mainly learns reading skills by reading aloud. Rivet then teaches the child how to pronounce a word correctly by reading back the feedback and help.
Rivet has a variety of modes and features to achieve this goal. One of the first features is to allow parents to turn off "Follow Along" so that the child can let the app read as needed. Children can click on a word that they want to read, and then let Rivet score their pronunciation so they can get the correct pronunciation.
Rivet is available for Android and iOS platforms, but currently only the Android version has real-time feedback to detect if a child's pronunciation of a word is correct. According to Google, Rivet has access to more than 2,000 free books covering a wide range of ages and themes, and is carefully planned for the younger generation.
