Description

Read&Write Gold is literacy software for either PC or a Mac that can make documents, files, and websites more accessible on any platform or device.

From reading on-screen text aloud to researching and checking written work, Read&Write Gold makes everyday tasks easier.  It is a great tool for people with dyslexia and other learning difficulties, anyone whose first language isn't English, or for people that want to augment their writing skills.
Users of all ages can access the reading, writing, studying, and research tools they need at school, home, or work. Having text read aloud with dual color highlighting, along with additional support tools, helps every learner gain confidence and work independently at their own pace.
