Texthelp Toolkit Read and Write

Read&Write

One of the key goals of personalized learning is to provide students with the opportunity to choose how they access educational content, comprehend it, and communicate their learnings.

Our Read&Write literacy software makes the web, documents and files more accessible - any time, any place, and on any platform. From reading on-screen text aloud to researching and checking written work, Read&Write makes lots of everyday tasks more achievable for all types of learners, including students with dyslexia and other learning difficulties, English language learners, and high performing students. It’s a big confidence booster for anyone who needs a little extra help with their reading and writing, at school or at home.
 
Texthelp Toolkit Equatio

EquatIO®

Personalized learning is not limited to English Language Arts, of course. Students learn differently across all subjects, and therefore, require tools that can help them differentiate their learning no matter which course they’re taking.

EquatIO, our digital equation editor, brings personalization and accessibility to STEM classrooms. With EquatIO, students can choose from a variety of input methods to create digital math and express their thinking. Plus, with EquatIO’s integration with Read&Write, math and STEM can now be read aloud, clearly and accurately, making STEM content accessible.

learning tools to love.

Texthelp Toolkit Snapverter

Snapverter®

Just because there is a shift towards personalized learning in today’s schools doesn’t mean that all teacher resources are formatted  to support a personalized experience.

That’s where Snapverter comes in. Snapverter is an easy to use add-on for Read&Write that transforms inaccessible papers and files into accessible PDFs that can be supported by Read&Write. Plus, these converted files can be shared via Google Drive with students and other teachers on any device - PCs, Macs, Chromebooks or tablets.
 
Texthelp Toolkit Fluency Tutor Reading

Fluency Tutor® for Google™

When students are tackling lessons at different speeds or from different angles in a personalized learning classroom, it can become very difficult to monitor individual progress. This can be particularly problematic when it comes to reading fluency and comprehension. If every student is reading a different passage or going at a different pace, it’s nearly impossible for a teacher to work one-on-one with every student during class time.

That’s why we’ve built Fluency Tutor. Fluency Tutor allows students to record themselves reading a Lexile-leveled passage and then share that content with their teacher - away from the pressures of reading aloud in the classroom environment. Developed with built-in accessibility features, including text-to-speech, students can personalize their approach to reading and comprehension. And thanks to the recording, time-stretched teachers can review on their own time.
