I use the "Readability" Chrome Extension with my students.  Read below:

Readability is a web and mobile app that zaps clutter and saves web articles in a comfortable reading view.

The official Readability extension for Chrome provides a better way to read online, turning any web page into a comfortable reading view right in your web browser.

Features:

• "Read Now" to disable surrounding webpage noise and clutter

• "Read Later" to save content to your personal reading list

• "Send to Kindle" to send any web page to your Kindle in a comfortable reading view

• Tagging to help you keep your reading list organized

• Automatically sync your reading list to your Kindle every day with Kindle digests

• Printing

• Sharing through email, Facebook, and Twitter

• Configurable content appearance: font color and size

Readability is great - I've had great success with the use of the speech recognition add-on in Google Docs with student who struggle with written communication.

So when I access the "Add ons" in Google Docs and search for Readability - it doesn't come up.  Has it been renamed?  Should I search another way?

I heard Google docs may have taken down the readability app. Try Chrome.

I use the "Clearly" Chrome extension. You can go to the Chrome webstore and look for it under Extensions. It reduces clutter on web pages so students only see the important information they need without the distracting adds. I use it for my students when they need to find a Science current event article. They find an article, click the Clearly chrome extension and the page they are on moves off like a slide and a new page slides in with only the article showing.
