Lena
Lena is an international University student from Germany currently studying abroad in Dubai. For her upcoming exam she wants to create a summary. She uses Alinea’s PDF highlighting text study tool which allows for summarizing text via multi-color highlights. While reading text, from an article or a book, she sometimes struggles with English words.

Luckily, Alinea translates the words from English into her native language using the dictionary or language translation button. By doing this Lena will understand reading texts better while enriching her vocabulary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Miguel
Miguel is from Spain and studying in Qatar. As part of his curriculum, he has to write a research paper in English. This is an extensive and very difficult assignment which will require a lot of writing. Unfortunately, he struggles with English words and it’s holding him back from writing what he would really like to say.

Alinea’s speech-to-text functionality is perfect for him. He can tell his story, as if he were having a conversation with someone or sharing a story, and Alinea writes it all down. When done, he uses text-to-speech functionality to double-check everything is correct.
