March 2018 ~ Learning new features for technology so everyone can benefit!
* Accessibility in Chromebook and Google Drive: Open a Google Document, on the Top Toolbar select "Add-On" and search
1. text to speech for READER: a free download that allows you to highlight text and have it read aloud. USE to help read books online or for further editing from #3.
2. Kaizena for Kaizena (Voice Comments): a free download that allows you to make audio and text comments on shared google documents.
3. speech to text for Microphone: free download that allows you to dictate by speaking into the google document.
Remember= use two fingers on the in-board mouse to 'scroll down' on the screen and that many tools come with video tutorials for help. I prefer to use the external wireless mouse, it's inexpensive and portable for plug-in use with Chromebooks. Next goal is to find the comfy headphones so everyone isn't listening with me!
Please share these tips with parents, students, teachers and therapist, so we can all work smarter, not harder, together and make learning FUN!
