Announcing Read&Write 5 GOLD for Mac!

Powerful new features and enhancements enhance both the teacher and student experience with Read&Write GOLD for Mac

Orlando, FL, January 26, 2012 - Texthelp Systems today announced Read&Write 5 GOLD for Mac, the newest release of its award-winning literacy support software program, at the Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) Conference being held January 25-28 at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, FL. Read&Write 5 GOLD for Mac  [http://www.texthelp.com/North-America/Our-products/Readwrite] is an easy-to-use customizable toolbar that integrates with common applications, including Microsoft® Word, Apple® Pages®, Apple Safari®, and Adobe® Reader and provides students of all ages, especially those with reading and writing difficulties, learning disabilities, and English Language Learners, with the support tools they need to be successful.

Read&Write 5 GOLD for Mac’s expanded toolbar includes exciting new features and enhancements to provide even more support for the variety of learning styles and abilities found in today's schools, colleges and universities, and the workplace.

"When we released Read&Write 10 GOLD for Windows, the response to the new features was overwhelmingly positive. We are very excited to now offer them in our new release of Read&Write GOLD for Mac. Students can take advantage of these innovative features, regardless of which platform they are working on, to help them independently and confidently succeed in their learning.” states Jack Dolan, President, Texthelp Systems Inc.

New features include: [http://www.texthelp.com/North-America/Our-products/Readwr...]
- Picture Dictionary – An online Picture Dictionary is available to display images from Widgits Symbols library for a selected word. Pictures can also be automatically inserted into a document next to the associated word. Visual images help many students better understand a word's meaning.
- Verb Conjugation Checker – The Verb Checker can be used to help determine correct verb conjugation. The student selects a verb and indicates the tense (past, present, future) they wish to see. Multiple verb conjugation options are then provided and the selection can be inserted into a Word or Pages document.
- Vocabulary List Builder – Teachers or students can easily create a vocabulary list by selecting words in a document or web page or by entering words manually. A Word or Pages document is then automatically created with the vocabulary words, dictionary definitions, and images representing the words. This time-saving tool helps improve and expand students' vocabulary skills.
- Paragraph Translator – In addition to the single word Translator, students can now have full paragraphs or blocks of text translated to or from English and their language of choice.
- Confusable Word Checker – Confusable words, such as "through" and "thorough", are now identified in addition to homophones.
- Integration with Apple Pages – All of the Read&Write GOLD features available for Microsoft Word can now be used with Apple Pages.

Enhancements to existing features include: ability to reread a selection of inaccessible text with Screenshot Reader, option to add custom imagery to the Fact Mapper, support for importing and reading poorly formatted DAISY books, improved scanning support including ability to scan multiple pages and support for HP scanners, and so much more!

Read&Write GOLD for Mac users can also benefit from having Read&Write GOLD features available in the Cloud for instant accessibility and mobility!  Texthelp Web Apps work within browsers on iPads, iPod Touches, iPhones, and other mobile devices as well as PCs, and Macs.  

Martin McKay, CTO and Founder, Texthelp Systems, adds: “The Web Apps are the perfect solution for students who have busy lifestyles and wish to access these support tools on the go. The Apps can be used not only to assist students with their studies but also for day-to-day activities such as sending emails or text messages from a mobile phone.”
