Via Closing the Gap:

"Gone Google? Accessibility Tools for Struggling Readers and Writers"

Participate FREE OF CHARGE
Thursday, February 6, 2014
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm 
Central Standard Time

Millions of students use Google Apps for Education to create, consume and collaborate on information every day. However, many of these students, including struggling readers and writers, students with learning disabilities and English Language Learners, do not have the supports they need when working within the Google Apps environment. Attendees at this webinar will learn how Texthelp’s cloud-based Google accessibility tools can help overcome this barrier by integrating support tools, such as text-to-speech, word prediction, text and picture dictionaries, study skills and more. These supports help to make common file types, such as Google Docs, PDF, ePub, KES and the Web, accessible through the Google Chrome Web browser on PCs, Macs and Chromebooks.
For those looking for a more traditional approach, the presenter will also discuss Texthelp’s desktop offering, Read&Write Gold, and the supports it provides for Chrome and Google Docs directly from the Read&Write Gold toolbar.
Both of these innovative solutions for Google allow students with reading difficulties to have access to the same content as others on a wide range of devices at home, school or anywhere they are needed. This webinar is a must for anyone using Google in their school/district/college.
