Love the tools and some of them I can use it with my newcomers ESL students as well. Thanks.
Level the playing field is great for students struggling with dyslexia, reading comprehension, or has difficulty with spelling. Speech to text, read aloud and the immersive reader can certainly alleviate frustration and struggles for students with disabilities.
