This is Part 2 of a series of tutorials to assist staff and students in accessing and using Read and Write for Google. The first tutorial covered how to use prediction, text to speech, and voice typing.
Below is a quick tutorial on how to use the dictionary, picture dictionary, and screen mask features of Read and Write. Enjoy!
I hope this tutorial is helpful as students and staff continue to use Read and Write for Google. The next tutorial- how to use Highlighting Tools, Collect Highlights, and how to generate vocabulary lists using Read and Write will be coming soon! Stay tuned!

Do you have a student that struggles with worksheets? Do they struggle with writing? Vision? Do you have access to an iPad? You can easily transform your worksheets into an accessible format that will transform the learning experience for your students. Here’s what you need:

- Edit the picture and rename the picture in iScanner.
- Using the export option, send the worksheet to Notability.
