Read and Write

Read&Write is text-to-speech customizable toolbar developed by Texthelp Systems and is available to all Miami University students. The software integrates reading, writing, studying, and research support with common applications. Some features include: 

  • Reading web content from any browser and Word or PDF documents (reading speed can be changed as well)
  • Converting pages to MP3/WAV format
  • Thesaurus and dictionary options

Once you get the software, we highly recommend you watch the Speech Video Tour, found on the drop-down menu to the right of the "Texthelp" tab on the right side of the toolbar.
