Tech Tip Tuesday: Read&Write for Google

Read&Write for Google is a free Chrome extension that is available in the Chrome Store.  It provides comprehensive reading and writing supports for Google Docs and the Web, as well as PDF's, ePubs, stored in Google Drive.

These supports include:
  • Read Aloud with dual-color highlighting
  • Word Prediction
  • Translator
  • Talking and Picture Dictionaries
  • Fact Finder
  • Highlighters and ability to collect highlights
  • Vocabulary Builder to easily create a list of words with text definitions and images
  • Annotations (PDF and ePub)
  • Navigational tools (PDF and ePub)
Here is a screenshot of the toolbar once the extension is installed.

After the extension is installed, I am sure you will find the features of this tool very helpful.  Remember, you can always hide the toolbar by clicking on the up arrow for the Read&Write icon, or just uninstall it.
