On 4 May, join us for our first ever virtual conference dedicated to education in Australia and New Zealand. Head of Education for Texthelp Asia/Pac, Greg O’Connor, who is also our host for the day, explains why this event is so important to our team. He’ll also share his “must see” sessions and what you can expect on the day.
Today, we're excited to announce the release of the new and improved Read&Write for Google Chrome.
