Reading Help Via the Mac

Fact mapper mac While most schools have standardized on PCs, there are a lot of Macs out there in classrooms, and they can help kids master fluent reading with Texthelp Systems’ Read&Write 3 Gold for Mac. This program focuses on helping struggling readers to read regardless of whether they’re using Word, Safari, or the Adobe Reader. The key is that the program’s floating tool bar is always there and gives students access to a variety of reading support techniques. The program can read any passage in a variety of voices, present the student with a graphic organizer or translate any passage for English as second language learners. A single copy of Read&Write costs $645 and schools can set up a license $4,990 per building.
