Read&Write for Google Chrome Resources

Read&Write for Google Chrome is an AT tool designed to support students in literacy.

Please see the video below for an introduction to Read&Write:

Read&Write is a Chrome extension (extensions are small software programs that customize the Chrome browser). Read&Write is a floating toolbar that can be used on the web, or within G-suite apps, like Google Docs.

These are the assistive tools within Read&Write:

  • Word prediction
  • Picture and word dictionaries
  • Text-to-speech
  • Speech recognition
  • Screenshot tool
  • Audio file maker
  • Highlighting and highlight extraction tools
  • Vocabulary list builder
  • Reading fluency tool

The quick reference guide provides detailed explanations of each feature above.

Since Google Read&Write is on the Chrome browser, the assistive technology follows the student (instead of the other way around). So students can start writing at school with Read&Write, then continue to write with support at home.
