Texthelp has recently partnered with CommonLit to help make complex text more accessible to all types of readers/learners including those struggling with literacy. We’ve integrated our software toolbar into CommonLit’s (free) educational content platform to enable students and teachers to listen to text read aloud, translate selected text into different languages, view word definitions, and highlight digital text. As part of our accessibility partnership with CommonLit, we also offer Fluency Tutor for Google™ to support students’ reading fluency.

Supporting reading fluency

Why not try Fluency Tutor for Google with CommonLit content? Fluency Tutor lets students record themselves reading and share with the teacher - away from the pressures of reading aloud in the classroom environment. It’s a big help for struggling and reluctant readers, as well as students learning English as a second language.

Use CommonLit passages to improve reading fluency.
