Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, October 6, 2013 2:47 PM

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.
