Read and Write for Google (RWG) works within the Chrome Browser and offers a variety of language tools for students. Common Sense Media’s review calls RWG “a Swiss Army knife’s worth of tools for reading support.”
- Text to Speech: It reads web-based text aloud. It highlights the sentence in yellow and the word in blue as it reads it aloud.
- Note-taking: It allows users to highlight text in four different colors and export selected text into a Google Document.
- Speech to Text: It supports dictation within Google Docs.
- Webpage Simplification: Removes advertisements and videos from a webpage so users can focus on just the text of the document.

This is a web-based version of Read and Write Gold. It does not have all the features of full Tex-Help’s full program, but for students needing help reading and writing this is a cost effective alternative.
