A little bit about Read&Write for Work

Read&Write for Work is our literacy support toolbar that's used daily by over 30 million people worldwide.

It's inclusive tools help users of all abilities with their everyday literacy and productivity tasks:

  • Text-to-Speech Tools
    These tools allow users to play any text to hear it read out loud. Each word is highlighted as it’s spoken so the user knows what text they’re reading. This combination of seeing the word and hearing it at the same time has been proven to reinforce understanding, improve retention and increase focus.
  • Neurodiversity Tools
    These tools are most commonly used by people with neurological conditions or barriers such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, and autism. They include Check It, an advanced dyslexia-friendly spellchecker that helps with complex spelling and grammar that your standard spellchecker won't pick up. And a Similar Word Checker that that identifies homophones and commonly confused words and helps users to decode these words and use them in the right context.
  • Productivity Tools
    These tools are most commonly used by neurotypicals to support fast and efficient working. They include a PDF Reader that makes PDF documents more inclusive to everyone. And, Digital Highlighters that take the stress out of research. They drop all your highlighted information into a document in a professional format with referencing and a bibliography so you don't have to.
