  • Optional voice over gives you the choice.RYA Theory coursesRYA Theory courses More info?
    Voice overs on videos and slide shows can get irritating, especially if you miss or do not remember something that has been said.
    We have solved this problem by using cross platform HTML5 animations and drawings with both text and optional voice over.
    You can choose what works best for you e.g. read and watch, read, listen and watch or just listen and watch as the step by step intuitive animated lessons take you towards your theory certificate.
    How it works All our animations have the explanation for each step in clear text so you can, not only read or check back through as many times as you like without having to rewind but, have the text narrated at the touch of a button.
    If you miss something that has been said it is still there in front of you in plain text, moreover, every animated lesson has click forward and back buttons for revision that take you back an exact step so you do not have to search back using an inaccurate slider bar.
