The Read&Write software makes the web, documents and files more accessible - any time, any place, and on any platform or device. It's great for people with dyslexia and other learning difficulties, or anyone whose first language isn't English. From reading on-screen text aloud to researching and checking written work, Read&Write makes lots of everyday tasks easier.Card It’s a big confidence booster for anyone who needs a little extra help with their reading and writing, at school or in the workplace.
