Back to School- Chrome Extensions

As the commercials extol, it is already back-to-school time. During the next few weeks, I’ll be profiling some necessary back-to-school (or work, or life) tools.

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!

Features:
• 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.
