Mission Statement

wordramp.org is an Internet Website that encourages the use of narrated onscreen text (voice-over) that makes written content readable for all adults who are unable or barely able to read otherwise.

The wordramp.org website endeavors to demonstrate its mission by setting examples of voice-over content..

Institutions and individuals may submit written content with audio for publishing in the WordRamp library.

Description

One in every four adults in America cannot read this, or can barely read it.

"WordRamp" has a procedure that will make written words immediately readable for most people who have a reading problem.

This procedure makes it possible for these people to acquire the greater knowledge and pleasure that can come from reading.

Adults with a reading disability need a parachute or lifeline to avoid losses or injury from not being able to read. Non-readers often have a lower standard of living, less self respect, pleasure and security.

People with other kinds of disabilities have accommodations such as hearing aids, glasses, recorded books, wheel chair ramps and more. People who have a reading disability need the accommodation of having an option that would make written words readable for them, they need a "ramp" to literacy.

Adding speech to text makes the text readable even for people who have a reading problem. Spoken text can be made an option that a user may turn on or off at will..
