The study found children focus closer on storybook text when it is read to them through the MeeGenius application as compared to an adult reading aloud.
MeeGenius used the Eye-Tracking technology from LookTracker, a Teknicks company, in support from EyeTracking, Inc., as a way to learn more about how children interact with digital stories to enhance the product.
