Benefits of Scroll™
Increased retention and comprehension Studies have shown that the utilization of multiple senses at the same time e.g. sight( reading) and listening, increases reader retention and comprehension by as much as 38% and 76% respectively. This is a valuable attribute for student learning and language skills. Comprehension is further augmented by referential look-ups (Wikipedia) and hyperlinks to external multimedia content, e.g. pictures, maps, videos and websites.
Enhanced Control/Searchability- Scrolls increase user control over both text and audio. Users will be able to search the text in order to find specific audio quotes. With simple touch gestures, the user will be able to advance, reverse, accelerate the pace of reading and listening to the scrolls, in order to cover the material as effectively as possible.
Greater Convenience Having a multi-format title increases reader convenience. At times readers may employ simultaneous read and play of content to increase comprehension and retention. At other times listening to a title is more appropriate, e.g. commuting or late at night when eyes are tired. The added convenience of Scrolls will enable readers to maintain continuity and finish the title in a manner which the user chooses.
