  • Text and picture dictionaries: provide definitions and display images to help with word comprehension.
  • Vocabulary list: creates a list instantly into a new doc, including selected words, the dictionary definitions, images from Widgit Symbols and an editable notes column.
  • Check it: Reviews writing for incorrect grammar, spelling (phonetic), capitalization, punctuation, verb tense and more.
  • Audio maker: converts selected text into an audio file and automatically downloads.
  • Talk&Type: Turns the spoken word into text (unavailable for Read&Write for Mac users). 

Read&Write software is available to all students and can be downloaded from the CCIT website.
