TextHelp, the makers of Read & Write Gold for Macs & PC's have put out a very interesting product for the Chrome web browser. If you use Google Docs with students the Read & Write app will be very useful. This FREE chrome extension supports such features as dual highlighting with text to speech. Other features include:
- Dual highlighted Text to Speech

I've been using this app with my classroom and it has been great. Very easy to use and extremely useful. Thanks to Karen Janowski for sharing this information!
