Today…Read & Write…
This is a fantastic extension that helps in the writing process, particularly by reading back text in a Google Doc. Read & Write uses the auditory learning style to catch writing mistakes. Anything that helps improve writing is a two thumbs up!
• Hear words, passages, or whole documents read aloud with easy-to-follow dual color highlighting
• See the meaning of words explained with text and picture dictionaries
• Hear text translated into other languages
• Predicts the next word as you type
• Highlight interesting or relevant text and collect it for use in other documents
Read&Write for Google™ is a friendly browser add-in for use with PCs, Macs and Chromebooks.
