Read&Write is a literacy support toolbar, proven to improve students’ reading and writing, using features including text-to-speech, picture dictionaries and word prediction. Whilst our tools are essential for students with additional learning needs, English language learners, or pupils in a low attainment group, every student can benefit from using Read&Write to build their confidence, understanding and engagement in learning.

A year long study identified that 66% of Read&Write users saw an improvement in reading age, compared to non Read&Write users (27%).

"Read&Write has been very helpful in assisting pupils to approach tasks more independently by aiding their understanding and building their confidence with reading. Using the software as a computer reader in exams has also helped to support the planning and implementation of access arrangements for pupils who are entitled to a reader for examinations.”

Lauren Beck, English Teacher, Parkhall Integrated College


Use in exams

Read&Write can be used as a computer reader in exams, allowing those with appropriate access arrangements to sit their exams independently without the need for a human reader. As computer readers are a JCQ approved acceptable arrangement, students can use Read&Write in exam mode to hear exam content read aloud, ensuring only approved features are used. Making it ideal for the GCSE English Language paper where a human reader is not permitted.

Read&Write in exams is also ideal for boosting students’ confidence and reduces the time and cost for schools when prepping for exams. It can easily be installed on any device your school plans to use for exams, even if these are standalone devices, not managed by the C2K network.
