Colored letters & other digital aids for improved reading practice.

why KOBI

When your child is not friends with words & letters, Kobi is here to help. Colored letters provide instant relief and make decoding words graspable.

Reading is not easy. Children who have reading difficulties like dyslexia end up frustrated and stressed. And this is exactly why we have developed KOBI, an app that helps children read.


In order to be able to read, a child needs to recognise letter shapes instantly and accurately. Color provides additional sensory input to the brain, to do this quickly and with greater ease.


Every brain is different. Some brains process shapes with greater ease, others are more efficient when they work with color.

Perfect formatting

Many children have great difficulty automating the correct recognition of similar shapes. Colour helps the brain to distinguish letters faster and the child is able to progress.

Visual support

Deconstructing long strings of letters is a difficult job. By actually seeing accentuated vocals, your child understands where to hold the voice. In this way he or she intuitively recognises the syllables and can adjust the rhythm of reading to a comfortable pace.

Practise & daily use

Kobi was carefully crafted to help your child at every turn. That’s why we’ve included a library of free books to get started. Need more? Simply import your own or scan any text with the camera. Difficult words? Kobi’s Text-to-Speech happily reads them out loud!

KOBI keeps track of your reading progress.

Kobi, my friend!

Kobi helps to reduce the stress and put the fun back into practising of reading.


When a child is motivated, he or she can face any obstacle, solve any problem or climb any kitchen cabinet. Kobi was designed so it keeps the child motivated for the duration of the session and beyond.

Less stress

Because children see and feel their learning progress, they have more fun doing it. That reduces stress and improves the learning process even more!

KOBI - Track reading progress

Track reading progress

Kobi was carefully crafted to help your child at every turn. That is why even after reading, Kobi supports your child by tracking reading progress. By showing the number of words read in that session, Kobi compliments the child and motivates him or her to come back for more the next day.

Literacy is a fundamental right. Every child should have the right support to learn to read - especially if he struggles at first. Without tears and bad will, and with the awareness that he can - and will - succeed.
