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.

Case Study

I am currently using this with students to aid revision. Those who find processing and memory more difficult are highlighting key words in selected colours and then capturing the highlights in a revision document.
