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.
