A comprehensive article with many resources. Assistive Technology, often overlapping with educational technology, certainly is supporting ALL students universally in education, as well as adult individuals to access employment, the community, and daily living activities. High tech options or low tech options, modifications, and so many free and low cost options available for leveling the playing field and supporting access in all environments.

Glenda's Assistive Technology Information and more...: Reading Websites for Young Readers | Assistive Technology | Scoop.it

"Learning to read starts with being exposed to great books. Reading should be fun and intimate. The Internet has become such a rich resource that software is rarely needed any longer and I guess this could be the only exposure a child has to books, but I sure hope not! Part of learning to read is the intimacy that comes from sharing a good book. Not just reading it but discussing it, talking about the pictures, relating it to your life."

Are you looking for great online resources that support reading? This post shares 14 websites as well as reading resources for the iPad.

* Bitesize, a site in the UK, "offers reading games and lessons on a variety of topics.  The KeyStage 1 site has lessons on phonics, spelling, alphabetical order, and rhyming words.  The KeyStage 2 site has lessons on deductions, poetry, dictionary and finding information."

* Read To Me offers books read aloud as well as lesson plans for teachers to use. This site has a great introductory video with students explaining how to use the site.

An additional 12 sites are listed. If you work with struggling readers or ESL learners you may find some great new resources.

Kit Hard has created a list of Chrome Apps and Extensions that enable reading and writing supports such as text-to-speech, speech-to text, and dictionary tools for students in my district.

 

> For text-to-speech Kit recommends the Chrome extension - Chrome Speak  The student highlights the text, right clicks and selects speak.

> The Google Dictionary extension will open a definition and audio for any word on any web page by double clicking the word.

> The Read & Write extension for Google Drive puts a toolbar on the top of the Google Docs editor that adds text-to-speech, a dictionary tool, visual dictionary tool, and special highlighting tools with extraction features.

> The Announcify extension takes online articles on sites like CNN or NYT and strips out all adds and distracting visuals, so that only text is visible, enables text-to-speech, and has easy option for enlarging text.

> Voice note is a Chrome app that is equivalent to Dragon Dictation for doing voice-to-text.
