Just this week Texthelp released some exciting new updates. The details along with a few screenshots are included below…
Read&Write for Google
Two separate updates were released for Read&Write for Google™. The first contained improvements to the ePub Reader. Specifically the update allows any highlights created in an ePub to be saved directly to a Google Document. This also works for any vocabulary lists created (see images below).
A similar update was released for the PDF Reader. It also allows highlights and vocabulary lists to be saved to a Google Document. In addition, a change was made to the Typewriter annotation tool so that it supports multi-line typing.
In case you aren’t familiar with the ePub or PDF Reader, these apps allow individuals to use Text-to-Speech and other accessibility tools with ePub and PDF files stored in Google Drive.
Highlighting Tools Add-On
At the time of this post over 67,000 users have installed and are trialing the new Highlighting Tools Add-On for Google Docs. Once their trial expires, users will continue to have access to the Yellow Highlighter tool and can collect highlights in a separate Google Document. Users who upgrade by purchasing a subscription to Read&Write for Google will have access to all Highlighting Tools in addition to the many supports available in Read&Write for Google.
