Read & Write for Google Docs

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
  • Dictionary
  • Picture Dictionary (with symbol support for cognitive rescaling)
  • Fact Finder (research information)
  • Translator
  • Vocabulary Lists
  • Collect Highlights

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!
