How does Read&Write benefit us?

Read&Write allows us to:

Communicate in the way we feel most comfortable

Dictate information rather than type. Type using Word Prediction, and maintain your flow without distraction.

Focus more easily

Use concentration features, such as Screen Masking, to focus more easily on the content you want to read.

Complete tasks with more confidence

Use intuitive writing features and proofreading tools to improve the quality of your work.

Choose how to understand information

Hear written text read out loud. Use organizational features to collect and summarize large amounts of content in your own way.

Collaborate more effectively

Leave voice notes in collaborative documents instead of written feedback. Use translation features to communicate with colleagues across the globe.

Work more efficiently

Use Audio Maker to convert large amounts of text into audio files, for easy listening on the go. Convert paper documents and inaccessible PDFs into accessible digital formats for easy editing.
