No special software is necessary, and researchers can hear the text spoken as they read along or if they are on the go.

One of my favorite books to read to children is Byrd Baylor’s picture book I’m In Charge of Celebrations. It demonstrates accessible joy in nature and describes ways any child (or anyone) can claim that joy and make it personal and enduring. Jill Bolte Taylor’s book My Stroke of Insight offers an equally exciting description of accessible joy. But Taylor’s source is internal not external.
Most readers are attracted to this book because it offers the singular understanding she gained as a neuroanatomist from Harvard who experienced a stroke. Her detailed knowledge of brain structure and function allowed her to categorize and analyze the steps of a stroke and the paths to recovery. She takes the reader through the experience, and the value of this new knowledge is considerable.
But relieved by the stroke of all duties to perceive and react to the world, her left brain ceded function to her right brain. Thus she found herself swimming in an ocean of joy connected through her right brain’s kinetic and intuitive tethers to all things. The peace and comfort she found there was a gift she was reluctant to release in order to take on the work involved in the therapeutic healing her left brain needed. Her goal is to retain that awareness and offer to each reader the possibility to tap into such a vast store of energy and connection.
The author’s website is a rich resource for further exploration.
