iBooks update brings 'read-aloud' feature
iBooks for iPhone and iPad has been updated to 1.3 and includes new read-aloud feature that reads the book to you. It's only available for "enhanced" books and some books will even highlight the words as they are read to you.
- Help your children learn to read with the new read-aloud feature included in select children's books from the iBookstore. The read-aloud feature uses a real narrator to read the book to you, and in some books, it will even highlight the words as you read along.
- Enhanced books can now automatically play audio or video included with the book.
- Makes iBooks more responsive when opening very long books.
- Addresses an issue where some books may display the same page twice.
This will be a great feature for children learning how to read. If you have any books with this feature enabled, let us know what you think!
