Read & Write (RW) is literacy software with tools designed for reading, writing, study, and research support. It has reader software that works with our library articles, websites, and alternate format textbooks. RW also includes speech-to-text to assist with typing, and OCR (optical character recognition) capabilities for scanned articles or inaccessible websites.  Learn more about Read and Write here.

We encourage all families, especially our families of primary students or those still perfecting their reading skills, to add this extension to your child's device if it is not already added.  This will help to increase their independence with reading and writing tasks.  See below for more information about accessing this extension.
