About Texthelp Read&Write Gold

Texthelp Read&Write Gold is available at no charge to Indiana University students, faculty, and staff through IUware.

Read&Write literacy software is designed to help anyone struggling with reading and writing, individuals with learning disabilities, people with vision issues, and English language learners.

Read&Write is a discrete, customizable toolbar that integrates reading, writing, studying, and research support tools with common applications. Some of the features include:

  • Text-to-speech integration with Microsoft Word and other applications
  • "Read the web" feature that reads website content aloud (when using Internet Explorer in Windows or Safari on a Mac)
    Note:
    On January 12, 2016, Microsoft ended support for Internet Explorer versions prior to version 11. UITS strongly recommends that you upgrade to a new operating system if your current system does not support Internet Explorer 11.
  • Screenshot reader that allows text presented as images to be read aloud (e.g., IU eTexts content on the Engage reading platform)
  • Word prediction and advanced spell check and dictionary tools
