Read&Write (RW) is a program that assists students with reading and comprehension.  Once loaded, RW can float over any application such as word processing documents, web pages, PDFs and more.  The fully customizable toolbar gives you access to features that include:

  • Text-to-speech (have text read aloud to you)
  • Audio file generation (save that “read aloud” version for study or listening later)
  • Word prediction (even works phonetically)
  • Word definition
  • Word translation
  • Highlighting text
  • Talking calculator
    And many others. . .

Read&Write is available on all public lab computers. To have this put on your office computer or your personal computer on campus, please place a Work Order through CTS.
