Bloom Reader in the classroom

Bloom Reader allows you to enjoy ‘Talking Books’ at home, but also in the classroom.

In Papua New Guinea, 30 schools in remote locations have been equipped with a ‘Teacher Presenter Kit’ as part of a pilot.

Where to get Bloom?

Bloom allows everyone to create a ‘Talking Book’ in his or her own language. Recording is done in Bloom itself, so you don’t need experience with audio-editing software.
