Today there is a lot of technology that can assist a wide variety of readers. This page will introduce you to the ones that I use.

Technological devices that can improve comprehension and make reading fun.
Kindle-Kindle 3G (Free 3G + Wi-Fi) is the easiest option because there
is no wireless setup—you are ready to shop, purchase, and read right out
of the box. Built-in Free 3G connectivity uses the same wireless
signals that cell phones use, but there are no monthly fees or
commitments—Amazon pays for Kindle’s 3G wireless connectivity. The added
convenience of 3G enables you to download books anytime, anywhere,
while on the go—without having to find a Wi-Fi hotspot connection. With
wireless coverage in over 100 countries and territories, Kindle 3G is a
great option for readers on the go.
Ipad-With iPad, the classroom is always at your fingertips.
Students can track their assignments, take notes, and study for finals.
Teachers can give lessons, monitor progress, and stay organized. And
that’s just the beginning.
Ipod-Apple iPod touch offers millions of songs, thousands of games and
countless hours of fun. Games designed for iPod touch technology are
just a tap away. Browse hundreds of games from the App Store right on
your iPod touch, download what you want, and you're ready to play or read and/or listen to your favorite books. Download apps for audiobooks, kindle and so much more.....
