PlanetRead is a registered not for profit with the simple vision of a reading planet - a planet where everyone can read and has access to interesting and affordable reading opportunities in native and other language(s).

Programs

PlanetRead uses Same Language Subtitling (SLS) in India in 10 languages nationwide to provide automatic reading practice to 300 million early literates people who are officially "literate" but who cannot read. SLS is simply the idea of subtitling the lyrics of film songs (or music videos) in the 'same' language that they are sung in. Over a decade of research has proven that this Karaoke approach to literacy improves the reading skills of millions of viewers.
