Googlen lomake on oikeasti hyvä työkalu. Viimeksi tänään näytin abiturienteille, kuinka näppärästi kyselylomakkeen saa tehtyä Google formin avulla.  Kun tulokset tulevat oletusarvoisesti eri asiakirjaksi, lomaketta on helppo käsitellä ja vaikka parantaa ja samoin sen tuloksia on vaivatonta katsella.

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.
