#21st Century Dyslexia

So many great tools are now embedded into mainstream products which is good news for the dyslexic learner. Did you know that in Word Office 365  you can:-

  • hear definitions when you right mouse click over a mis-spelt word
  • you can also have the definition read back to you with a sub menu and “Read Aloud”
  • you can Review your work under Learning Tools now embedded in Word and have it read back in Syllables, have the background change colour  and the page layout can be altered to suit.
  • you can use speech recognition to enter text directly into your document without the need for additional speech recognition software
