Readability FAQs - August 2020

The Readability app is unlike any other learning app on the market. It’s the first learning app of its kind, which is why parents may have a lot of questions about how it works.

At Readability, we are more than happy to answer your questions to ensure you have the information you need to decide whether or not this app is right for your child. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about Readability:

Is there a discount for multiple students or low income families? 

All new users can use Readability for free by starting their free 7-day trial. To continue using Readability after your trial is over, you will need to pay a monthly subscription fee of $19.99 for up to 3 users.

Is the Readability app just for kids that are already reading?

The Readability app is designed to help children at K-6 reading levels. We recently introduced a new feature for K level readers that goes through books word by word, allowing the reader to hear the correct pronunciation of each word.

The speed at which the books are read can be adjusted in the app’s settings. If your child has not started to read yet, we recommend starting our free 7-day trial to determine if Readability is right for your family.

How much does Readability cost?

Readability offers a 7-day free trial to new users. You can start your free 7-day trial today to determine whether or not Readability is right for your struggling reader. After the free trial is over, you will be charged $19.99 per month to continue using the Readability app. Up to 3 readers can use the app for this low monthly price.

Do I have to provide my credit card information to start a free trial?

Yes, you must provide your credit card information in order to start your free 7-day trial of Readability. However, your card will not be charged during this free trial period. Your credit card information is only required so we can verify your identity and confirm you are over the age of 18.

Your card will not be charged until your free trial is over. At this time, it will be charged $19.99 per month unless you choose to cancel your subscription. You can cancel your subscription at any time through the app.

To cancel your subscription, open the app and tap on the 3-bar tab in the upper left corner. Then, tap on “manage subscriptions” to cancel your subscription. You can also cancel your subscription by emailing

Is Readability based in the United States?

Yes, the Readability headquarters are in Long Beach, California.

Will my child read on their own or have access to tutors on the Readability app?

The app will read aloud to your child first before instructing your child to read the text aloud. The app will listen to your child read and correct pronunciation errors in real time so they can learn from their mistakes.

The app is also designed with an Interactive Voice-Based Questions & Answers feature, which will ask your child questions about the text to keep them engaged and check their comprehension.

These unique and innovative features allow children to communicate with the Readability app just like they would with a reading tutor.

Readability FAQs - August 2020

What is included in the monthly subscription?

A monthly subscription to Readability will provide you with access to:

  • Unlimited content for reading levels K-6
  • Parent dashboard with data on your child’s performance, including:
    • Time spent reading
    • Words per minute
    • Accuracy
    • Comprehension
    • Books read
    • Report card email

What reading level is this app designed for?

Readability is designed for reading levels K-6.

Can homeschooling parents choose to start at a certain grade level?

The Readability app will automatically place your child at a reading level that is one level below their current grade level. This gives your child the opportunity to build their confidence in their reading skills.

Once they begin to improve, the app will automatically increase their reading level. However, parents can adjust their child’s reading level at any time through the app’s settings.

What is the difference between Readability and Kids A-Z?

Readability is the only smart reading and comprehension learning app on the market. It is designed with responsive speech recognition and artificial intelligence technology, which enables it to communicate with your child just like a reading tutor.

Another feature that sets Readability apart is the parent dashboard, which allows parents to track their kids’ progress. This dashboard will provide data on time spent reading, accuracy, comprehension, books read, and words per minute. If you have more than one reader using the account, the app will separate the data by reader so you can see how each child is performing.
