Read & Write
A Chrome Extension
Read&Write offers a range of support tools to help students gain confidence with reading, writing, studying and research.
This includes features like text-to-speech that allows students to hear words, passages, or whole documents read aloud with easy-to-follow dual colour highlighting. Text and picture dictionaries help users to see the meaning of words explained while spelling, grammar and confusable word assistance is provided by Read&Write’s new feature – Check It.
To open up the extension click on the icon, then open a web page or document and you will see a new bar across the top of the page. Each icon introduces a feature, let’s take a look at the read aloud option. As you can see it highlights each word and reads them aloud for the learner. You can pause or stop at any time.
