Read and Write for Google

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.”

  1. 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.
  2. Note-taking: It allows users to highlight text in four different colors and export selected text into a Google Document.
  3. Speech to Text:  It supports dictation within Google Docs.
  4. 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.
