Listen while driving, walking, cooking, eating, working out, etc.
I’ve been dyslexic my whole life.
Reading that sentence takes me the same amount of time and brain energy as most people take when solving a 4 digit long division math equation in their head.
I would pretend to read in elementary school.
Through hard work (and convincing a lot teachers to give me exceptions) I got accepted to Brown University.
One problem….I couldn’t read my summer reading book – there was no audiobook for this book.
I had no other choice, I hacked an old text to speech computer system to read the remaining portion of the book over night into my iPhone and then listen to it on the plane.
Today, hundreds of thousands of people have been able to function in school and society because of Speechify.
Remember, that above all else, your mission is to be who you needed most when you were growing up.
