Accessible Reading:  Digital Supports for Accessible Text - Anyone Can Read!

February 25th:  3:15 to 5 PM -

Studies show that 1 in 3 students struggle with traditional text.  What is remarkable is that over half of these students can be assisted by adjusting the spacing, background color, and size of text that is presented to them. This workshop will focus on all of the reading accommodations that can be so quickly, easily, and inexpensively implemented in all of our schools here in Marin. Participants will learn their way around text to speech - a feature available in all digital platforms, accessible book libraries such as Bookshare, Learning Ally, and Overdrive, and how to make any printed text for worksheets or environmental reading speak and read back to you in the language that you need. Come and learn how simple and easy it is to provide accessible text!
