It is estimated in a recent OECD International Adult Literacy Survey that up to 500,000 Irish adults are functionally illiterate, that is many people have difficulty in reading and understanding everyday documents. We address this problem by allowing users to interact with speech enabled e-Learning literacy content using multimodal interfaces. We present two experimental prototypes that explore technical solutions and identify an application architecture suitable for literacy e-Learning. The implementation of an evolutionary prototype that uses client side technology is described and feedback from this phase of the project is reported.
