Readeo

From the Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database:

Tools for improving the quality of life as we grow older — shared by the Tech-enhanced Life community.

 

Summary

Readeo is a subscription service consisting of a combination of an app with hardware intended to enable the pages of a story to appear on the computer screen, and for persons separated by distance to see, hear and talk to one another through video chat windows at the bottom of the screen.

From the website: "Bedtime Stories From Faraway Lands: Readeo takes a Skype-like video chat and adds over 150 of the best children’s books for an experience that keeps kids’ attention longer, fosters a love of reading and lets you share story time no matter how far apart you are. We call it BookChatting. And it lets you stay connected with the children you love whether you’re a traveling parent, a long-distance grandparent, a family separated by divorce or a member of the military."

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the products.

 

Note: If you want to support our work, please use these links when you buy any of the products we write about, as we sometimes get a small percentage of the sale from the manufacturer, which we use to support our research. (This does not effect the price you pay).
