Learning to read with Turning Pages Digital

September 8, 2023

At school I was bullied when I got things wrong in class, and this made me want to not try. Then when I was working, I would start early in the morning and often did doubles, so I didn’t have the time or energy to learn.


I did not know what to expect from Turning Pages Digital, and I was really nervous about meeting someone new and starting a new challenge. But I wanted to be able to write things properly and not rely on predictive text.


I now understand more words and I can tackle large chunks of text. Before I would just skim and zone out halfway through, and now I take my time and read things properly. I recently read through some of my partner’s medical paperwork, and support her with it. That felt great and is not something I could have done before.


I plan to continue learning and improving my literacy skills. I’m looking forward to being able to read fiction books.

I am most excited about being able to write my wedding vows. We have been engaged since before I went to prison, and I thought about it there a lot. I am so happy that I can now write down all the things I feel about her. It feels incredible that I know I can do this.

 I really liked having the sessions in person as well as working on my own. If I got stuck on something by myself, I knew my reading coach would help me in the next session.


She helped me with difficult words and all the different spelling and punctuation rules. If there is something I’m not sure about, she takes the time to explain until I understand.


My favourite part was the sense of achievement I felt when I completed the programme.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragra

phs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin

editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, bloc

kquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
