Assistive Technology Tools for All Students

While our students are remote learning and doing most of their work on computers, they can benefit from useful tools available to all TDSB students.  Google Voice Typing is a useful speech to text tool available to all students who are working in Google Docs, part of the GAFE (Google Apps For Education).  Most of our students know how to use Google Voice Typing but may not have used it frequently.  Now with remote learning they may find this tool quite useful.  See the attached handout for simple instructions on how to use Google Voice Typing.  Google Voice Typing Handout

Read and Write Extension for Chrome is another useful tool for all students.  It is designed to provide literacy support to all students for completing reading, writing and research tasks. All teachers, staff and students have access to the full suite of Read and Write tools in Chrome, Windows and Edge. Read and Write can also be used with Mac, iOS and Android devices.  For information on Home Installations click here.  Click on this link for information on how to access the extension and short tutorials on how to use it.
