GAFE Literacy Tool (GAFE 學習輔助工具)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

At Texthelp, we believe that literacy is every student’s passport to academic, social and professional success.

It’s our genuine desire to help people communicate that sparks us to create smart, friendly support technologies that enable young people to read and write with confidence.

In this session, participants will learn more about common assistive technology supports such as text-to-speech, word prediction, text and picture dictionaries, annotations and more that can help students who struggle with reading and writing.

Attendees will also see demonstrations of these tools in Read&Write for Google™, a cloud-based solution that works with Google Documents, Web pages, and other common file types, such as PDF, ePub files in Google Drive. These tools can be used through the Chrome browser on PCs, Macs, and Chromebooks.

All session attendees will get a free copy of the software.
