Phonemic Awareness can be taught using online technology. According to the article, text-to-speech technology has the research that proves it works when using it to teach children phonemic awareness. This is a great add-on to a teacher's instruction in phonemic awareness. Online resources for phonics are very similar for those used for phonemic awareness. These programs may help students with segmenting and blending. Often times, the sounds are seen and heard, helping the student understand the letter-sound relationship.

Once students have mastered phonemic awareness and phonics, fluency instruction should be next. The student must have a firm foundation in both, in order to learn how to read fluently and with correct intonation and speed. E-books that contain read-aloud and even highlighted text are good resources when teaching fluency. Online software that focuses on vocabulary is a resource that can be used to help students increase their vocabulary. Access to online speech read-aloud dictionaries, thesauruses, or encyclopedias also help students expand their vocabulary. Comprehension of text is the last skill we will look at. Text comprehension, using online resources, often uses hypertext and hypermedia to encourage comprehension. [1]
