Read&Write (RW) for Windows and Mac is a reading and writing solution for students with dyslexia and other Learning Disabilities (LD). The text-to-speech application allows users to read Word documents, Web pages, or PDF files aloud. Some of Read&Write features allow for the conversion of scanned documents into text documents,highlighting words when reading, word prediction support, highlighting and highlight extraction, screenshot reader for images, and the conversion of text documents into audio formats. 

Read&Write is not only a great software solution for students with disabilities, it is an effective study and writing tool for all students. This was made possible through a Student Technology Fee grant awarded to Student Accessibility Services, and is available for use by all students at Florida Atlantic University.
