How to Improve your Reading and Writing


Read&Write Gold can help - available on all TAFE Illawarra computers and you can use it at home.

Read&Write Gold is a software package that lets you scan words or pages and hear the text read back to you in a natural voice.  It's great for anyone who just wants some help getting started and useful for people with dyslexia, low literacy or limited English language skills.
