Read and Write Gold

What is it?

Read and Write Gold is a reading, writing, studying and research support tool designed to help every student succeed.

How can it be used?

When reviewing final papers, check out the "text-to-speech" feature to listen to your paper as it is read to you. You can also use the phonetic spell checker, which will pick up some errors that Microsoft Word will not.

When reading research material online, completing an online test through blackboard or reading digital textbooks, you can use the "text-to-speech" feature to assist with having the material read out loud to you.

When writing papers, use the "speech-to-text" feature to speak what you want to write and it will be typed for you. You will need to use a microphone or headset with a microphone and also train the software to recognize your voice. There's also a dictionary and word prediction to assist with your writing.
